Stories from Isaac Akwetey-Okunor
The Member of Parliament (MP) for the Lower Manya Krobo Constituency, Ebenezer Okletey Terlabi, has donated 15 set of computers and sewing machines to four second cycle institutions in the constituency.
The beneficiary institutions are Akuse Methodist Senior High and Technical, Akro Technical and Senior High School, the Community Development Vocational Training Centre at Kpong, and Rapid Professional Development Training Centre, a private professional training institution.
Presenting the items, the MP, who is the Ranking Member of the Health, Science Technology and Environment Committee in Parliament, said the donation was in fulfilment of a request put through by Francis Nutsu, head of Home Economics at Akro Technical and Senior High School.
According to Terlabi, some days ago, the tutor of Akro Senior High School requested that many of the technical and senior high schools in the area undergo difficulties during exams, since they do not have enough tools for their practical lessons
He, therefore, called on the MP to assist his school to help the students in the upcoming examinations.
Mr. Terlabi hinted that he was touched by the request, and further investigation indicated that not only Akro Senior High School, but almost all the schools, hence, he decided to, at least, do the little donation.
The final year students of Akuse Methodist Senior High Technical School, who are studying fashion designing as one of the vocational subjects under the Home Economics Programme, preparing for their practicals in the ongoing West Africa Secondary School Certificate Examination, could not hide their happiness.
The MP was accompanied by the Constituency Chairman, Walter David Hormenu, and other constituency executives of the National Democratic Congress.
