The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Kintampo North, Mr. Michael Sarkodie Baffoe, has commissioned a six-unit classroom block, teacher’s quarters, a mini dam, and water project at Gomboi, Yaara and Dwere in the Municipality.
These projects were commissioned and handed over to the various communities in the Mo Traditional Area through a Director of the Ghana Education Service on behalf of the Regional Education Director.
The projects were executed by Dr. David Mensah, a native of Yaara in Kintampo based in Canada, to complement the government’s efforts in bringing development to the people in communities in the Mo Traditional Area.
The Municipal Director of Education for Kintampo North, Mr. Yaw Adumaku Poku, appreciated the efforts of Dr. Mensah towards the development of the community, and asked for more of such support.
He said the pupils and teachers have no excuse for not coming to school for they now have all the facilities to enable them teach and learn.
The Kintampo North Municipal Chief Executive, Mr. Sarkodie, applauded Dr. David Mensah for the development projects he has executed for the people of Mo and Kintampo.
He added that the government was putting in efforts to promote girl child education, and urged all parents to support their children, especially girls, to attend school and not to give them out for early marriages.
He advised the pupils “to study hard as future leaders and listen to their parents as well as be of good behaviour as future role models.”
The MCE asked teachers to be role models to the pupils they teach, and appealed to non-governmental organisations and Ghanaians living abroad to help the government develop their communities, to improve the livelihood of the people.
Dr. David Mensah urged all communities of the Mo Traditional Area to be at peace with which other to promote development in the area.
He assured the people of Mo that he would continue to support development projects to improve their standard of living.
