Ayawaso West Wuogon MP donates 200 dual desks to schools in Savannah Region

The Member of Parliament (MP) for the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency, Lydia Seyram Alhassan, has donated 200 dual desks to schools in the Central Gonja District of the Savannah Region.

Lydia Alhassan, who hails from Mpaha in the District, made the donation to improve the quality of education in the area.

At a ceremony to hand over the furniture, the Ayawaso West Wuogon Nasara Coordinator of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Alhaji Nasiru-Deen, who made the presentation on behalf of the MP, said it was done in fulfillment of an early promise she made during her visit to schools at Mpaha in Central Gonja four months ago.

“Hon Seyram was here, and she saw the condition of our children in their various classrooms. This pushed her to provide these dual desks to the schools. So she asked me to present to you 200 dual desks to share among the students.

Eighty of the desks will go to Kpabusu, and one hundred and twenty will stay here. So, I happily present them to you.”

On her part, the District Director of Education for the Central Gonja District, Madam Veronica Tampur, commended the Member of Parliament for the kind gesture and assured her of it being put to good use:

“We have a lot of challenges with future. The Assembly has given some, but it is not always enough, and so through the efforts of our head teachers, particularly Mr. Hayford, applying to our MP, and she also being a very kindhearted mother and a very good mother and sister, seeing the situation of our children, also came to our assistance, even though she is not an MP in Savannah, but in Greater Accra Ayawaso Wuogon.

“We promise that these furniture she has given us will be put to good use. We are going to make sure we will maintain it when there is something small wrong.”

Madam Veronica further appealed to individuals and benevolent organisations to come to their aid with desks to curb the insufficient furniture challenge in the district.

In all, 120 dual desks will be distributed to the Mpaha Cluster of Schools, while 80 would also be given to the Kpabusu Cluster of Schools.

The short ceremony was attended by a representative of the Chief of the area, the Assembly Member, teachers and pupils of some selected schools among others.
