The Member of Parliament (MP) for Kwesimintsim, Joseph Mensah, has paid unannounced visits to projects sites in his constituency, as well as distributed about 2,000 mathematical sets to Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) candidates in his jurisdiction.
The MP, better known as ‘Joe Mensah’, has been distributing mathematical sets and other educational materials to candidates for the BECE every year.
That apart, he has also set up a scholarship scheme managed by a committee, which poor and needy students can access.
Needy students entering the various tertiary institutions are currently on the MP’s scholarship scheme.
Speaking to the Junior High School (JHS) candidates at the various schools, MP Joe Mensah encouraged them to give up their best and make the constituency proud when they sit for the BECE.
He said, as an MP, education was his priority, and was ready to assist every student who excels. He told the candidates he had set up a scholarship scheme where students could access assistance from Senior High School to the tertiary level.
The MP also visited the Community-Based Health Planning and Services (CHPS) compound he was sponsoring at Assekae, a local community.
Another project the MP and his team also visited was the construction of a storey building to be used as a public school in Adientem.
The project has reached lintel level and the funding is coming from the MP’s Common Fund and solicited organisations.
