Stephen Tecku, the Obuasi Municipal Coordinating Director on behalf of the Municipal Chief Executive on Wednesday 2nd August 2023 handed over 350 metallic dual desks to the Municipal Education Directorate of the Ghana Education Service (GES) to be distributed to needy schools in the Obuasi Municipality

About 700 school children from eight (8) schools in the Obuasi Municipality are expected to benefit from the furniture which are expected to enhance quality education and promote effective teaching and learning in the area.

Mr. Tecku speaking at a short handing over ceremony said the intervention formed part of government’s support through the GES Head Office to the district with the aim of helping to bridge the infrastructure deficit in the district.

He said the Assembly led by the Municipal Chief Executive Hon Elijah Adansi-Bonah remains committed to support education by providing the necessary infrastructure to boost quality teaching and learning in schools.

He appealed to the education directorate and head teachers at the beneficiary schools to ensure that the pupils handled the furniture with care.

The Obuasi Municipal Education Director George Alfred Koomson assured that the furniture will be used for the benefit of the school children. He also promised to liaise with the authorities of the beneficiary schools to ensure the furniture are protected.

He said though the Assembly has done a lot in terms of infrastructural development in the schools, there exist schools which remain in poor state.

“The Assembly has done a lot for education in Obuasi but we appeal to management to look at renovating schools that are in deplorable state”

Mr. Koomson further stated that the teachers are well placed to deliver quality services to the schools to complement efforts of government to support education.
