The Member of Parliament (MP) for the Tarkwa Nsuaem Constituency, George Mireku Duker, has donated motorbikes and ICT tools valued at GH¢50,000 to the Municipal Ghana Education Service office (GES).
The donation goes to rekindle the spirits and aspirations of teachers, particularly Circuit supervisors, who are the beneficiaries of the donation, to aid their monitoring activities.
The donation forms part of the lawmaker’s campaign pledge to support and improve effective teaching and learning in the schools.
The MP, who is noted for his continued support for education, donated four brand new Haqjin motorbikes to be distributed to Circuit Supervisors in the rural areas to aid in their monitoring and evaluation tasks for the betterment of education in the Municipality.
He also donated three brand new HP desktop computers with accessories, and a projector to the Education Service office to help in their activities.
Speaking at the ceremony to handover the motorbikes and the ICT devices, the Tarkwa Nsuaem Legislator reaffirmed the vision of the President in making education a priority.
He told the gathering, made up of stakeholders in the education sector, that his office will continue to liaise with the Municipal Education Directorate and Assembly to further ameliorate the various challenges facing education in the area.
Touching on some challenges, the lawmaker assured the gathering that his office will support the organisation of the annual sporting activities to help talented players at the various schools discover their talents.
That apart, he will also support mock examinations to help prepare the candidates of the Junior High Schools (JHSs) for the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).
“I will support the Municipal Education office to organise more than one mock exam for our young ones at the JHS to prepare them and ensure they pass very well to enjoy Free SHS.”
For this reason, he called on the GES to take good care of the items to prolong their lifespan.
He also urged parents to instill discipline in their wards and take keen interest in their education.
Receiving the items, the Education Director, Mr. Alex Duah, expressed his profound appreciation for the donation.
