Education will continue to receive priority attention - MCE
Kumasi, Nov. 18, GNA – The Kumasi Metropolitan Chief Executive, Mr Samuel Sarpong, has expressed the unwavering commitment of the metropolitan assembly to give more attention to education development.
He said the assembly would work hard to mobilize more resources to provide the needed infrastructure for basic and Senior High Schools (SHS).
Mr Sarpong said this when inaugurating a 14-unit classroom block built for the Badriya Islamic Basic School at Old-Tafo in Kumasi.
The GH¢ 312,000.00 project was funded by the KMA from its internally-generated funds following an appeal by the school authorities.
Mr Sarpong said the importance of education could not be downplayed since it was the only medium through which the youth could develop their skills and exploit their inherent potentials for national growth.
He said it was as a result of this that the assembly has been providing computers, furniture and classrooms to enhance teaching and learning in the area.
Mr Sarpong, while urging the authorities to ensure proper maintenance of the facility challenged Muslims to embrace secular education.
This, he said, was necessary to enable their children to have fair share of existing opportunities in the society.
