Mr Francis Adomako, Asokwa NPP organiser and aspiring regional organiser hopeful presenting some of the items to the staff of the Atonsu MA JHS last Friday at the school compound.
The New Patriotic Party (NPP) branch in the Asokwa Constituency has given sets of pens, pencils and mathematical sets to final year students who are billed to write their Basic Education Certificate Examinations (BECE) today.
Handing over the items to the teachers and staff of the Dompoase DA, Kyirapatre MA, Gyinyase and Atonsu MA Junior High Schools last Friday, the constituency organizer of the party, Mr Francis Adomako encouraged the students to do their utmost best to get good grades in the upcoming examination.
According to him, the party believed in the capabilities of the Ghanaian child and was committed to doing all it could to ensure it encourages them to reach the top of the educational ladder.
This, he stressed influenced the party's candidate and now president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to come up with the vision to ensuring all qualified BECE candidates enter the Senior High level without paying any fee.
The organizer also lauded the efforts of the Member of Parliament for Asokwa, Madam Patricia Appiagyei in helping students in the constituency to get useful education materials.
According to him, the MP believes that the ability of the child to get the needed education is half-way to making them useful citizens to the country.
This, he noted has informed the decision by the MP to donate books, computers and other teaching and learning equipment yearly to schools in the constituency.
The continuous gesture of the MP and the Asokwa NPP branch, Mr Adomako stressed was in recognition of the fact that an educated society is the surest way to overcoming life's challenges.
Putting the cost of the items at a little of GHC 7,500, Mr Francis Adomako, who is also aspiring to become the Regional Organizer of the NPP for the Ashanti Region intimated the desire of the MP and himself to make education attractive to children that are growing up in the Asokwa Constituency.
The items, he noted were purchased from money the MP gave the party as well some funds he as constituency organizer mobilized from his personal resources.
The idea, Mr Adomako stated was to inspire confidence in the school children especially those who are currently billed to sit for the BECE Exams.
He promised to ensure all schools in the 47 constituencies in the Region continue to receive such donations from his outfit when he is elected as regional organizer of the NPP.
Accompanying the Constituency organizer during the presentation of the items were the aspiring Asokwa Constituency Secretary, Papa Yaw Asare Bediako, Richard Kusi, Assembly Member for Gyinyase Electoral Area, Elliott Ofosu Barnor, Deputy Constituency Secretary and Assemblyman for Kuwait Electoral Area as well as the constituency women's organizer and other party faithful.
