Saki (near Tema) Nii Tetteh Oglie II, chief of the Nmlitsakpo Traditional area within the Kpone-Katamanso Municipality of the Greater Accra Region has held his annual thanksgiving service to thank almighty God for the previous year and to seek divine protection for the years ahead.

The thanksgiving service brought together the various denominations in the Nmlitsakpo traditional area to converge at the forecourt of the chief palace.

The event was under the theme; ‘Uniting Nmlistakpo for greater development’ with the aim of soliciting support to build additional classroom blocks at the Nii Oglie Model school to help curb the overcrowding challenge in the school.

Addressing the congregation, Nii Tetteh Oglie II stated that the current situation at the Nii Oglie Model School which remained the only government school within the Nmlitsakpo traditional area needed some urgent attention, adding that the classrooms were awfully inadequate to accommodate the overwhelming students admitted into the School.

Nii Oglie II further opined that it was heartbreaking to count over 80 students in a classroom which was supposed to accommodate only 35 students, stressing that the situation was unacceptable hence the need to raise some funds to help build additional classrooms to help enhance teaching and learning activities at the school.

The Nmlitsakpo Chief further called on corporate organizations, the government and most especially parents to help give the school some face-lift since it was the only public school in the area.

He advised that parents must show keen interest in ensuring their children were well educated and not to relinquish all responsibilities in the hands of the government and the school authorities.

Over 1,500 Christians within the Nmlitsakpo traditional area including Chiefs from other traditional areas participated in the annual thanksgiving service organized by Nii Tetteh Oglie II.
