Brigadier General Nunoo-Mensah (Rtd), Coordinator Human Security Office of the President has expressed dissatisfaction over the dependency on Government by the citizenry for educational infrastructure.

He said it is time Ghanaians forget the notion that government is there to provide everything for them.

Gen Nunoo-Mensah was speaking at the Speech and Prize-Giving Day and 25th Anniversary Celebration of Gomoa Senior High Technical School at Gomoa Dawurampong.

It was on the theme: “25 years of Gomoa Senior High Technical School, impact and Challenges”.

Gen Nunoo-Mensah said Ghanaians should not always expect government to do everything for them but must endeavour to play their parts as patriotic citizenry to move the country forward.

Gen Nunoo-Mensah who was among the Guest of Honours had single handedly completed the first floor of the Girls’ dormitory of the School, which was gutted by fire in 2014.

The project being financed by Ghana Education Trust Fund has been abandoned by the contractor for lack of funds.

Gen Nunoo-Mensah called on individuals and corporate bodies to complement the efforts of the government in the provision of health, education and other structures.

He asked parents to encourage their children to study hard to enable them achieve academic laurels.

He expressed concern about the inability of the present crop of students to burn the candle to learn, resulting in mass failure of examinations.

Mr Joseph Denanyoh, Headmaster of the School enumerated a number of projects that have been initiated by the school with its Internal Generated Fund.

He called on the parents to support the efforts of the authorities to improve structures to enhance quality teaching and learning.

The Headmaster complained of inadequate bungalows at the school, which had compelled more than 60 tutors commute from Agona Swedru, Winneba, and Apam to teach.
