The Presbyterian Church of Ghana has said its basic schools on government’s published list of schools removed from under trees were never under trees.
The government recently published a list of 600 schools it claimed to have removed from under trees.
The list had the Osu Presby Boys Primary, Osu Presby Girls Primary/JHS and Osu Salem '5' Primary on it.
The church said the schools have had classrooms for a very long time. Speaking to Citi News
, the District Minister of the Osu Ebenezer Presby church Reverend Dr. Nana Opare Kwakye said government only offered to renovate the schools.
“It was an existing building, not a school under a tree. Government only helped to refurbish the building by re-roofing and changing door locks,” he said.
Rev Kwakye also opined, “The Osu Presby Cluster of Schools are very old schools and most of the people in the church and community have come from that school so these are not schools under trees.”
