Nation building critical to our survival -Afenyo-Markin

The Majority Leader of the Parliament of Ghana, Alexander Afenyo-Markin, has urged media professionals to continue holding government appointees accountable for their actions.

He emphasised the importance of nation-building, stressing that it is critical to humanity’s survival.

Afenyo-Markin acknowledged the vital role media professionals and Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) play in achieving this goal.

He noted that for any nation to progress, media professionals and CSOs must work together to ensure accountability.

“Nation-building is critical and we shouldn’t let it slip out of our hands,” he emphasised.

Afenyo-Markin commended the media and CSOs for their efforts, saying they serve as a check on politicians and ensure they stay on track.

The Majority Leader made these remarks while presenting high-end Lenovo Ideapad computers to 25 teachers from public and private schools in the Effutu and nearby constituencies in Accra, on Monday, June 10, 2024.

He has supported over 2,000 teachers with laptops since 2018.

Afenyo-Markin also commended the Fourth Estate and Manasseh Azuri for their work in holding the government accountable.

He urged teachers to use the laptops wisely and avoid unnecessary acrimony in schools, especially during the upcoming elections.

Rejoice Arhin, a teacher at Pomadze-Asebu D/A “A” Basic School, thanked the Majority Leader on behalf of the teachers, expressing their hope that Effutu will become a model community in the future.
