Youths of Agona Kwanyarko, together with their traditional authorities, have picketed on the premises of Kwanyarko Secondary Technical School in protest against the renaming of the school.

The protest follows suggestions that the school, located in the Agona East District of the Central region, be renamed after the reigning paramount chief of the area, Nana Ampem Darko.

The youth got wind of the attempts by the Ministry of Education to rename the school Ampem Darko Secondary Technical School.

The youth expressing their displeasure in the effect of the renaming said Agona Kwanyarko is a humble community with nothing to boast of except the educational institution.

To them, the school is the only major established institution in the area that projects the image of the town.

Therefore, they will not be indifferent to the development, especially when Nana Ampem Darko has left no legacy for authorities to rename the school after him.

“We do not support the move to rename the school,” the youth stated sternly.

The Abusuapanyin of the area, Ebo Essando,  who doubles as a board member of the Kwanyarko Secondary Technical School, said the Paramount Chief did not consult his council of elders and the community before taking the decision.

The school’s name “shall forever remain Kwanyarko Secondary Technical school,” he said, adding that the school instead needs additional infrastructure such as a physics laboratory, hostel, classroom blocks and other units.

Moreover, some sub-chiefs in Agona Kwanyarko have also registered their disapproval to rename the school Ampem Darko Secondary Technical school.
