Indigenes of Kayoro, a community along the Ghana-Burkina Faso border, in the Upper East Region are calling on the government for their fair share of the national cake by putting up one of the Community Day Senior High School in the District to facilitate the attainment of higher education.
Kayoro is a community without a single senior high school and the nearest senior high school close to Kayoro is situated in Chana which is about five kilometres from the town.
This situation makes it difficult for students who travel on daily basis to Chana to access a senior high education.
The road network from Kayoro to Chana for these students is so bad that it adds up to frustration of students defying the odds to have a secondary education.
Kayoro was one of the most neglected communities in the Region.It lacks social amenities such as good roads, educational facilities, public places of convenience, a library and a community centre.
Historical records showed that the people of Kayoro migrated from the Lower Nile Valley in Sudan to Burkina Faso, and later settled at their present location.
Mr Joseph R. Mumuni, the Chairman of Kayoro Development Association said the main road linking the district capital to the east was terrible and that made travelling from Boania and Nakolo unpleasant.
He also called on government to expedite action on the Banyono Bridge to reduce the travelling distance between these communities and also within the district.
He was speaking to The Finder at the outdooring of Pio Charles Kolase Awiah, who was installed as the first chief the Kayoro Community in Greater Accra to help bring the indigenes of Kayoro residing in the area together, to foster unity and plan development projects for their hometown.
Pio Awiah assured the people of an open door administration and asked them to call on him when the need arises.
On the general election, he cautioned the media to be circumspect in their reportage before, during and after the event.
He said elections were all about choices and should, therefore, not be characterised by violence, adding that, Ghana needed peace for her developmental progress.
The association was formed in Accra four years ago to support developmental projects in the community.
