Reverend Joseph Henry Ofosuhene, Kwabre District Director of Education, has urged electorates to learn the electoral processes and procedures to ensure credible and peaceful election this year.
He said the country needed peace and progress and it therefore behoved all stakeholders to contribute meaningfully towards it through a successful election come December 7, 2008 elections.
Rev. Ofosuhene was speaking at a send-off party for Nana Yeboah Mensah, Kodie Schools Circuit Supervisor in the Afigya-Kwabre District after 40 years of active service with the Ghana Education Service (GES).
He commended Nana Mensah, who is also the Krontihene of Adwumakaase-Kesse in the district for the good work he had rendered to the nation and the district in particular.
The District Director appealed to him to avail himself and assist people with his rich experience, skills and knowledge.
Rev. Ofosuhene urged other teachers to emulate Nana Mensah's sense of dedication, discipline and hard work to assist the children they teach in order to improve on their academic performances.
Nana Opoku Frefre III, Obuabasa and Gyasehene of the Asantehene, a teacher by profession, stressed the need for teachers to endeavour to take advantage of the government educational programmes to upgrade themselves.
He said the work of a teacher never ends and therefore asked Nana Mensah to not only continue to assist in educational development but also helped in community development projects.
Nana Mensah, in his farewell message, appealed to parents to collaborate with teachers to ensure proper and effective upbringing of their children.
He thanked the teachers for their support, cooperation and understanding they gave to him during his service period.
He observed that there were lots of benefits in the teaching profession if teachers would wholeheartedly discharge their duties faithfully.
