Volta Colleges of Education Cry For Help

President of Teacher Trainees Association of Ghana (TTAG) Volta Chapter, Mr. Bright Ababio Akpemada has appealed to the government to come to the aid colleges of education in the provision of water and other issues confronting some colleges in the region.
He bemoaned the problem of water which has persisted in E.P College of Education, Amedzofe, Dambai College of Education and Peki’s Govco all in the region without any redress.
“Till date, there are still instances where colleges of education, which have long attained tertiary status, get access to water from the most bizarre sources”
Mr. Ababio complained that stakeholders are not doing enough to help the situation citing parts of the Girls Dormitory of Akatsi College of Education which are yet to be rebuilt months after fire gutted the dormitory. Also, work on St Francis College of Education in Hohoe which recently got its roofing sheets ripped off as well as other GetFund projects in the region have stalled.
He however, commended the New Patriotic Party government for restoring the teacher trainee allowance and clearing feeding grant arrears and suggested that policies be made at addressing trainees’ needs to inspire others to take up the teaching profession.
“Things that are needed for the trainees to have a successful training in the colleges should be made available”, he said at the grand durbar of this year’s Women Empowerment Summit held on March 17, 2018 at Akatsi College of Education.
The programme which took place from 14th-17th March attracted a number of trainee teachers from all the seven colleges of education in the region and various stakeholders to the annual event celebrated by the Association to empower female teacher trainees.
