The Evangelical Presbyterian (E.P) College of education located in Amedzope in the Ho west District of the Volta region has for decades been without certain vital infrastructure except a classroom block and a library.
This has been the situation since the establishment of the school.
The principal of the school Dr. Dickson Tsey, at the commissioning of the first ever Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) installation at the college by Pipelines and Product Marketing Company (PPMC) complained bitterly about the deplorable condition of most of the buildings since the establishment of the school by the Germans in 1946.
According to Dr. Dickson Tsey, the first female hostel of the school is on the verge of collapse due to its abysmal condition adding that the uncompleted four-storey building which was intended to be used as a female hostel has been abandoned after the foundation was laid seven years ago.
Dr. Tsey noted that the completion of the female hostel would bring massive relief to the management and the students and would help improve on teaching and learning.
“We humbly appeal to the Government, Stakeholders and Institutions to come to the Aid of the college in fixing several challenges confronting the school especially the deplorable female hostel which is a great worry to the college” Dr. Tsey pleaded.
The principal Dr Dickson Tsey also indicated that the college is not adequately resourced with a modern administrative block with offices, a science laboratory and basic facilities and equipment to enhance teaching and learning.
In attendance were the Member of Parliament for the Ho West Constituency, Hon. Emmanuel Bedzra, representatives from the Procurement and Project Management Company Limited, a civil engineering consultancy and staff of the school.
