Akome Senior High Technical School (AKOSTECH) is one of the oldest secondary schools in the Ho West constituency in the Volta region of Ghana. The school was established in the year 1991 in a small village called Akome.
In a developing story, the youth of Akome have expressed their frustration to societywatch.net, and are very angry with students of AKOSTECH. Their reason being that both boarding and day students of the Senior High School are involved in the use of illegal drugs, and the angry youth and old students of AKOSTECH believe that it does not speak well of the school and the community at large.
They revealed that these students, especially the boarders have also taken up the habit of sneaking out of campus to town around 8:00pm to smoke Indian hemp.
A follow-up investigation by our reporter revealed that there is an individual in the town who supplies these future leaders with the drugs, a situation which is disturbing. This said supplier has been reported to the police on several occasions, but no attempt has been made to arrest him.
Another disturbing situation is the unlawful use of mobile phones on campus. It has become so much of a nuisance that these students are able to make and receive calls even when classes are in session. And this has become possible because the students have the backing of the headmaster.
Therefore, the youth and old students of Akome Senior High Technical School (AKOSTECH) are calling on the Ghana Education Service to come in and salvage the situation in order to save the name of their beloved school.
