Parents urged to complement education of their wards

THE La Nkwatanang Madina Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Mrs Jennifer Dede Adjabeng, has urged parents not to leave the academic activities of their awards in the hands of their teachers only.

According to her, parents should equally have a critical role to ensure that the best foundation built for their children was education.

Mrs Adjabeng said this in a statement read on her behalf at the 65th Independence anniversary on Sunday in Accra.

In all 900 students from 10 basic and two Senior High Schools and six cadet corps took part in this year’s celebrations.

Education,  the MCE stated would not only help individuals to take the mantle of leadership, but also empowers one to perfectly discharge future responsibilities hence, the need to offer pupils the required skills needed.

 “It is only when we give them the requisite education and training that they can be good citizens and contribute their quota to national development in future,” she added.

Mrs Adjabeng assured of committing more resources to the educational sector to improve basic infrastructure and logistics to make teaching and learning more rewarding.

She charged the pupils to eschew all forms of vices including, truancy, drugs and substance abuse and cybercrimes and rather concentrate on their studies.

The MCE urged the residents to be committed to the unity and peace in the area, so that collectively the goals and aspirations earmarked for the municipality could be achieved.

The Municipal Director of Education, Mr Kean Adjei Appiah, commended the country’s founding fathers for leaving a legacy for the current generation and urged the pupils to emulate their sterling qualities.

From the Ayawaso West Municipality, the MCE, Ms Sandra Owusu-Ahenkorah, in her 65th Independence anniversary address urged the residents to unite and work together in order to collectively build the country.

The country, she stated has human resources which could be harnessed for the betterment of the nation and this could be achieved if we avoid partisan politics and focus on issues of national interest in order to exhibit to the world that ”the Ghanaian is capable of managing his or her own affairs.

The MCE tasked the pupils, parents and the larger community to renew their commitment to civic responsibility which include payment of levies, avoid littering the environment, partaking in communal labour and protection of national assets.

The country and the municipality can bounce from the scourge of the COVID-19 if the conscious efforts is made to make Accra the cleanest capital city in Africa.

Inspecting and obeying the bye laws, positive attitude towards work and embracing of cultural lives.

Ms Owusu-Ahenkorah expressed the assembly’s desire to provide more furniture for schools, improve school infrastructure, scholarships, AstroTurf football parks and hygienic facilities to improve teaching and learning.
