Drobo (B/A) Jan. 29 GNA - Nana Yaa Ansuaa, Queenmother of Drobo Traditional area in Jaman South District of Brong-Ahafo has advised parents to invest in the education of their children, especially the girl child.

Addressing a meeting of sub-queenmothers in Jaman South District, Nana Ansuaa said the education of their children, "who are our most important assets", was their best investment.

"Through quality education, our children would become the country's future doctors, scientists, teachers and distinguished men of God, among others.

"Gone are the days when guardians and parents perceived that girls and for that matter women were to be confined to the kitchen", she added.

The queenmother advised the parents to shun wasting their resources on frivolous activities to the detriment of their children's education and urged them to provide them with their educational needs.

On the national health insurance scheme, Nana Ansuaa noted that about 24,000 persons had registered for the district's scheme and many of them had already benefited from it.

Nana Ansuaa asked the sub-queenmothers to embark on intensive education to sensitise their communities to pay their premium promptly.
