Open Defecation: Pupils in Assin Fosu refuse to go to School….as Classrooms turn into Lavatory, lovers joint

The Assin Fosu Municipal Education Director, Ms. Mercy Akua Lissar has registered her displeasure over the incessant use of some classrooms in the municipality as defecating, smoking and lovers’ joint by some unscrupulous persons in the area.

According to her, the pupils are forced to use contact hours to scrub human excreta and condoms before classes start, a situation she bemoaned.

The Education Director said the phenomenon is affecting attendance of the Railway Station A and B Basic school as the children believe they would meet human feces every morning,  hence the failure to come to school.

She said not only defecating in classrooms is affecting schooling but theft and attack on teachers in schools such as Railway Station A and B and Afutuakwa Basic Schools are on the rise, making it difficult for teachers to give out their best.

Ms. Lissar, therefore, charged the community members to form a watchdog committee to guard the schools from such barbaric acts.

She further blamed the situation on the lack of security and lighting system in those areas and hoped however the Electricity Company of Ghana would come to their aid as she has appealed to the Company through a letter and also called on benevolent organizations and individuals to come to assist them.
