Academic and administrative work on the three campuses of the Health Assistants Training School at Anyinasuso near Tepa in the Ahafo Ano North District of the Ashanti Region has been affected by the erratic power supply currently being experienced in the country.

The main campus and the hostel, as well as the Tepa campus, experience power outages on a daily basis. It is almost becoming normal that the unannounced power cuts could last for two, three, or more days before supply is restored, only to go off within hours. Madam Victoria Amoah, Principal of the school, who described the situation as disturbing, has appealed to the District Assembly and the Ministry of Health to come to the aid of the school.

According to her, the school is feeling the brunt of the power outages very much, because it has no generating plant, and appealed to well-meaning corporate bodies, organisations, institutions, and private individuals to bail the school out of the situation. The Principal suggested that solar panels would be more preferable, since the institute cannot afford to procure fuel out of is subvention to run generating plants.

Last year, the Anyinasuso Health Assistants Training School was upgraded with an additional midwifery training facility towards improving the health needs of the people, but Ms. Amoah has indicated that both academic and administrative work are being disrupted every now and then, and hoped assistance would come the way of the school soonest to arrest the situation, and ensure the smooth running of programmes at the school.

Meanwhile, the Member of Parliament for the area, Akwasi Adusei, has indicated that he is lobbying for assistance in this regard from the ministries of Education and Health.
