ESHS Wall Should Have Cost $300K, Not $1M- Fahie

Opposition Leader, Hon. Andrew Fahie has suggested that, the wall at the Elmore Stoutt High School which cost government $1M should have cost $300,000.

He said that, the people of the Virgin Islands will address the other political reckless decisions made by the Government at an appropriate time including “the one million dollars spent on a three hundred thousand dollars wall around the high school,” Fahie said on Friday, March 17.

He also mentioned, the implementation of a sixth form when absolutely nothing was in place for it to function; schools without sanitary supplies; and the public library has now been closed for one year and to date the House of Assembly has not been given the budget for its relocation or the operational expenses required for its operations.

Recently in the House of Assembly, Hon. Myron Walwyn, Minister of Education and Culture, in response to questions from Fahie, disclosed that, the total amount spent on the wall to date is $1,068,292.91.
