In a bid to decongest Cape Coast, especially the commercial areas, the Cape Coast Metro Assembly has inaugurated a task force made up of ten personnel drawn from the Ghana Police Service and Metro Guards from the assembly.

The task force which will commence work on 26th March, 2018 has been mandated to ensure that traders who have stalls within the refurbished Kotokuraba market occupy them. The exercise will also be extended to the Abura Market and end on the 26th of April, 2018.

Professor Augustin Tanle of the Department of Population and Health of University of Cape Coast says Ghana’s population growth rate is comparatively better than other countries in the West African sub-region.

He argues, Ghana’s 2.5 population growth rate stands healthier than other countries which are recording 6.0 and above. He attributes Ghana’s comparatively low population growth to conscious efforts to address issues of population through intense family planning campaigns.

The honourable Member of Parliament for Cape Coast North, Barbara Asher Ayisi has intervened to find a lasting solution to an impasse between authorities of Academy of Christ the King school at Abura in Cape Coast.

Rising tensions between the Obrempong Kojo Ebiradze  family claiming ownership to the land on which the school situates and authorities of the school is feared to possibly brew chaos and is a risk to the safety of unsuspecting students and other school staff.

Government of Ghana has negotiated for a 40 million dollar World Bank support to improve infrastructure in secondary schools in the country. The money will among other things augment government’s effort at sustaining the free Senior High School (SHS) policy without compromising quality.

Mr. Baffoe said government recognizes the challenges faced by various senior high schools and has put in cogent measures to address them. According to him, the ministry of education is open to contributions from all quarters on the free senior high school policy to ensure its sustainability.
