Construction of washroom for Atronie Methodist Schools by Union Group CEO


The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Union Group of Companies, Dr. Augustine Opoku Agyemang, intervened on behalf of the Bono Regional Minister Mad. Justina Owusu Banahene to address a long-standing restroom crisis at Atronie Methodist Basic School in the Sunyani Municipality.

The adjoining M/A Junior High School’s toilet facilities, which have been used for years by both schools and the community, will be upgraded with a 9-seater loo that will be fitted with a mechanised borehole.


The renowned benefactor is also spending hundreds of thousands of Ghana cedis to renovate the School and add a cutting-edge ICT centre.

Seven of the nine water closet stalls in the lavatory are set aside for pupils, while the other two are reserved for the teaching staff.

When finished, it will be the first time since the school’s founding that it has access to a water closet.

Because of its urgency, according to Dr. Augustine Opoku Agyemang, the lavatory facilities were the first project scheduled to be built for the school.

Dr. Augustine Opoku Agyemang stated in an interview that the Bono Minister Justina Owusu Banahene had requested that the school urgently need a modern, spotless lavatory facility to improve hygiene and sanitation, as well as general classroom renovation and the addition of a computer lab, while she and the Bono Minister were inspecting the progress of the work at Atronie.

Dr. Augustine Opoku Agyemang declared that he was willing to assist since he understood that schools are among the settings where people’s lives are shaped.

He claimed that after visiting the school, he saw that it lacked restrooms, a computer lab, and many of its classrooms were in a terrible state, which led to the initiative.

The Bono Minister reaffirmed that once finished, the facility would enhance the school’s and the surrounding area’s hygienic state.

Mr Anthony Adjei, an assemblyman from the Atronie electoral district, praised Dr. Augustine Opoku Agyemang, CEO of the Union Group of Companies, for helping the school.

The member of the Assembly feels that Dr. Augustine Opoku Agyemang’s generosity couldn’t have come at a better time and adds that he has seen firsthand how the school’s sanitary issues have negatively impacted teaching and learning.

After construction and handover, he promised to work to ensure that the facilities are properly maintained for the benefit of the school’s students.
