Ghana: SDA to Establish Senior High School At Obuasi

The Ghanaian Chronicle – The Obuasi sector of the Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) has announced plans by the mother church to establish a Senior High School (SHS) at Obuasi.

Pastor Andrews K. Fosu, Sector Chairman of the church, announced this at a ceremony to mark the 125th Anniversary of the SDA church in Ghana.

While expressing his outfit’s readiness and commitment toward the school project, he added, however, that acquisition of land for the project remained a challenge.

He, therefore, appealed to the Obuasi Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Richard Ofori Boadi, to assist the church in procuring the needed land to enable it realise its dream.

Mr. Richard Ofori Boadi, on his part, promised to liaise with the Adansi Traditional Council in ensuring that land was allocated for the project.

He disclosed that the assembly had made significant progress in its quest to get a tertiary educational institution established in the municipality.

Meanwhile, the church, as part of activities marking the anniversary, embarked on massive clean-up exercises at key health facilities within the municipality.

The over two hours exercise saw members of the church de-silting gutters, clearing weeds, and scrubbing among others.

The facilities included the Bryant Mission Hospital and Eye Clinic, St Jude Hospital, and the Obuasi Government Hospital.

The Chairman of the Planning Committee of the Obuasi anniversary, Elder James Adjei Mensah, explained that they were motivated by the Church’s mission of ensuring healthy environments at all times, and hoped other churches would emulate their example.

Mrs. Alice Kwarteng, a midwife at the St. Jude Hospital, on behalf of the medical institutions, thanked the church for factoring the well-being of the people of Obuasi in its anniversary celebration.

The 125th Anniversary was under the theme; ‘Proclaiming the coming King.’
