General Manager (GM) of Waste Masters and Agro Ghana Limited, a subsidiary of Jospong Group of Companies (JGC), Edmund Kweku Vidjah, has described the chemicals used in disinfesting public senior high schools (SHSs) in the North East Region as “very potent.”

Mr. Vidjah made the observation when Zoomlion Ghana Limited (ZGL) begun a four-day disinfestation and disinfection exercise in the region.

While the disinfestation is targeted at bedbugs, the disinfection exercise is intended to curb the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

The GM of Waste Masters and Agro Ghana Limited described the exercise so far by his team of sprayers as “very successful.”

“We have enjoyed the full cooperation of the school authorities which has facilitated the pace of our work. In fact, the school heads have been very helpful,” he expressed.

He went on to aver that the disinfestation will particularly help ease the pains of students, looking at the harm done them by bedbugs.

About twelve (12) SHSs were expected to be disinfested and disinfected in the region.

Meanwhile, speaking to a cross-section of journalists after the exercise in his school, the Assistant Headmaster in charge of Administration at the Nalerigu SHS, Ali Nantomah, was full of praise for the government and Zoomlion.

According to him, his school has been battling with bedbugs over the years, a situation, he lamented, sometimes compelled the students to sleep outside their dormitories.

“…and to make matters worse, many of my students could not even have the peace of mind to do any meaningful academic work,” he bemoaned.

“That is why our school is very grateful to the government and Zoomlion for this initiative. Indeed, it will go a long way to ease our burden of using our scarce resources to spray the school, and further give the students the peace of mind to study,” Mr. Nantomah gladly said.

The team also sprayed the Gambaga Girls SHS also in the North East Region. Among the facilities sprayed included the dormitories, administration blocks, dining halls, beds, mattresses, lockers, kitchens, various offices, etc.

The exercise is a collaboration between Zoomlion Ghana Limited, Ministry of Education, and the Ghana Education Service.

Already the exercise has been undertaken in the Eastern, Ashanti, and Volta Regions with the second leg currently taking place in Bono, Bono East, Ahafo, Northern, North East, Oti, and Savannah Regions.
