She indicated that the NPP government led by His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is always ready to discharge his core business with high level of commitment and passion and the typical example in education sector is the implementation of the Free SHS policy.
She added that, the Assembly therefore has a responsibility to contribute their quota to ensure that the basic level education is adequately prepared to feed the second cycle institutions. She called on the school authorities to ensure good maintenance of the facility.
Nana Yaa Saah I, the Queen mother for Ayeduase who chaired the event was elated and thanked the government and the MCE for such initiative in her community.
