Tema Metro MCE inspects public schools to assess their state

Tema, Mr Yohane Amarh Ashitey, Tema Metropolitan Chief Executive, has visited some public basic schools in the metropolis to inspect their infrastructural state.

The visit formed part of a weekly tour initiative of the Metropolis by the MCE to gather first-hand information on happenings in the metro.

Mr Frank Asante, Public Relations Officer of the TMA speaking to the Ghana News Agency said the MCE was accompanied by engineers from the works department who had been tasked to compile a report on the inspection.

Mr Asante said some of the schools visited were the Community Eight Number Four school complex, Akodzo JHS, Twedaase Primary and JHS, and St Pauls Methodist School.

He said the remaining ones in the Metropolis would also be assessed to find out their peculiar problems as part of the Assembly’s vision to make Tema shine again.

He noted that the situation at the Tema Community Eight Number four school needed immediate attention due to the profuse roof leakage which affected teaching and learning whenever it rained.

The PRO said the works department was instructed by the MCE to conduct feasibility on the structure for immediate remedial action, while the assembly mobilised resources to have a permanent solution.

Mr Asante explained that some of the old schools were constructed over 60 years ago when Dr Kwame Nkrumah created a planned Tema city and most of them all had some issues which the TMA was compiling for works to begin and therefore called for collaboration among stakeholders.

He said other issues noted at the schools were structural cracks and sewer lines problems.

Good parenting: Responsibility for all – Bishop Wiredu

Tema, Bishop Marcus Wiredu, Founder and Overseer of The Golden Lampstand Ministries, has affirmed that good parenting is a responsibility of everyone, not just the biological or foster parents.

He said parents might have given birth but the responsibilities of training the children fell on the multitude; “it is everyone’s responsibility to parent a child or children, be them yours or not”.

He said when the child was not trained well, he did not only become a nuisance to the parents, but the society as a whole; “to have a society of noble people, we need to work together in the training up of the children”.

In the celebration of the 2022 Father’s Day church service, Bishop Wiredu, who is also the founder of Hopefield Bible College, speaking on the theme: “Parenting Responsibility,” called for proper understanding of God’s mandate invoked not only on parents but the entire society to take care of the children.

He stated that a lot of people were celebrated during times like Father’s Day not because they were their parents, but due to the role, they played in the lives of children.

He, however, advised parents to train their children using the word of the Lord, quoting from Isaiah 54:13 that “And all thy children [shall be] taught of the Lord, and great [shall be] the peace of thy children (KJV)”.

He mentioned that it was therefore a must for parents to train children in the Lord to help them grow to become responsible people in society as the Bible instructed.

The General Overseer said, “Good parenting is not only about giving them a good life but also showing them the way through the Word of God”.

For a peaceful home and society, he said parents should involve the Word of God in the training of their children.

Bishop Wiredu, however, cautioned ‘you can be a father but not a parent, so know your responsibility and do them well through the Word of God’.
