The Aspiring Assembly member of Pokuase Abensu electoral area, Smart Nana Kusi has called on Government, NGOs and all educational stakeholders to urgently prioritize the construction and development of infrastructure in basic schools across the country.
According to the Union, basic education in the country faces a number of challenges with infrastructure deficit being a central component that continues to hinder growth, especially in rural areas.
This request was made when the Aspiring Assembly member of Pokuase Abensu donated over one thousand (1000) exercise Books worth millions of cedis and other learning materials to some Basic schools in the Abensu electoral area today.
“I acknowledge the numerous educational improvements and enhancements that has been done in the secondary and tertiary levels of our education sector. Your government has done enormously well in the secondary sector of our education, but it will interest you to note that if we don’t take key steps in addressing issues at the basic level, the secondary level will be a recipient of bad products from the basic schools.
“Mr President, on behalf of the people across the corners and quarters of this country, we are begging you that, going forward, if it is possible, we should prioritize basic school infrastructure,” Aspiring Assembly member of Pokuase Abensu electoral area, Smart Nana Kusi appealed.
He also noted that there is some level of disquiet on the student front because resources allocated to the School Feeding Programme are inadequate.
The Aspiring Assembly member took the opportunity to appeal to the good people of Abensu to Vote for him as their Assembly Member.
