The Executive Director of Ghana National Council of Private Schools (GNACOPS), Mr Enoch Kwasi Gyetuah has express anxiety about the use of wrecked school buses by some Private Schools to convey students.

Mr Gyetuah explained that this is a regular practice by some low fee paying schools which occupy over 70 per cent of schools in the country.

Speaking to Nana Ampratwum on SilverFM's Omanbapa morning show, Mr. Gyetuah said, these private schools in the country mostly need some form of support from the government or NGO to enable them operate.

''In this trying times we find it essential that government or benevolent non-governmental organisations lend a helping hand to these lower schools''

''The Council had been meeting with head of schools to engage parents of the students on how best they can arrange to purchase additional bus in schools where the student ratio is huge''

He indicated that the Council had advised parents to enroll their wards into nearby community schools. He believes this can also bring down the overloading of buses everyday to schools.

''The Council has also been advising parents to enroll students in schools closer to their residence as this will also reduce over loading and accidents of these school buses''

He disclosed that, the Council wrote to some Bus Manufacturing Companies oversea including a German Car manufacturing company and Perfect Motors in Saudi Arabia.

Mr. Gyetuah hinted that a Saudi Arabian car manufacturing company, Perfect Motors agreed to offer them 400 school buses which are due for shipping but Government is yet to hear their plea to eliminate the tax waiver on the buses for them.

He added if these buses get their way into the country, it will help reduce overloading of students amongst some Private schools.
