He cautioned that school lands were the property of the assembly and the state hence people who enter the premises without permission could be made to face the law.

He later presented 300 exercise books to the school. Mr Takyi Gyan, the Assemblyman of Nkoranzafie, urged the unit committee of the area to form a task force to check the activities of some unscrupulous persons who would encroach on the schools compounds to smoke "wee" and even defecate.
