NPP MP enstooled as development chief

The Member of Parliament for Suhum Constituency in the Eastern Region, Oboafo Kwadjo Asante has been enstooled “Nkosuhene” (Development Chief) by the Chiefs and elders of Koransang, a farming community for constructing eight -Unit classroom block.

The only school in the Koransang community has for many decades remained deplorable posing a threat to teachers and pupils.

The attention of the MP was drawn to the deplorable facility during a visit to the community.

He subsequently awarded to contract for the construction of an 8-unit classroom block at the cost of Ghc800,000.00.

Commissioning the Classroom block for use, the chiefs and elders of Koransang commended the MP for his swift intervention in providing the community descent classroom infrastructure to improve quality education for children in the rural area.

On his part, MP Oboafo Kwadwo Asante said the project was in line with President Akufo Addo-led government’s commitment to quality education.

“government prioritizes education as the most important driver of development that’s why he introduced the free SHS even though there are few challenges but the majority of our children now have the opportunity to be educated,  when you look at Namibia’s literacy rate it is close to 92% and Ghana’s literacy rate is around 70 to 75 percent which means we still need to do more as a country to educate our children”.

According to him, “the first day I came to Koransang I wasn’t happy looking at the nature of the school building, I realized that the people I came to talk to were pointing at the building saying we won’t listen to anything fix the school building for us so I took it upon myself to construct the building as a matter of urgency to address the challenges students and teachers go through in the school, now that the building has been constructed I will urge that we properly take good care of it and the students also should take their education serious”.

Oboafo Kwadjo Asante further noted that “Government has also realized that TVET or technical education will help this country so let us all support the government, no government has bad intentions for the people in the country, we are all gearing towards a common goal but with divers ideas, so anything any government will do in the country is through the resources of the country and taxpayers money so we should not say that this is not my government”.

“I will still speak ill against the good things brought out by that particular government, the Suhum constituency is big so I will urge all of you to have confidence in us so that we continue to serve your needs gradually” he noted.

“Let us appreciate our children’s performance and continue to encourage them to learn hard so that with the help of our teachers we can improve their performance in the upcoming Basic Education Certificate Exams BECE” he added

On the same day, the MP returned to Suhum where he donated a 25-seater bus to the constituency which was handed over to the Constituency Chairman, Mr. Fredrick Ofosu.
