Agona West MP inaugurates school block for Bobikuma Presby JHS
Bobikuma (C/R), Mrs Cynthia Morrison, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Agona West, has inaugurated a six-classroom block after the completion of its rehabilitation for the Upper Bobikuma Presbyterian Junior High School in the Central Region.
Addressing chiefs, students, teachers and supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) at the inauguration, Mrs Morrison said the renovation of the school was in fulfilment of a promise made to the people in the constituency during the 2016 elections.
She this shows the value she places on education in the area.
Mrs Morrison, now Minister-designate for Gender, Children and Social Protection, expressed gratitude to the chiefs and people of Bobikuma for voting massively for the NPP in the 2016 elections.
She said education is also a priority for President Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, hence the introduction of the Free Senior High School Policy, which took-off last year and urged parents to take advantage of it to send their children to school.
The MP assured authorities of the Bobikuma Presbyterian Basic School that she would ensure that the school is listed on the School Feeding Programme to encourage the enrolment of more pupils.
Ms Betty Essel, the Agona West Municipal Director of Education, commended the MP for her prompt action in renovating the school, whose dilapidated condition compelled the authorities to send JHS ‘1’ to ‘3’ students to different schools in the town.
She called on the school authorities, the Parent Teacher Association and the School Management Committee to take good care of the school block.
Ms Essel praised the teachers and the students of the school for their hard work which produced excellent results in this year and last year’s BECE.
Reverend Cosmos Labi, the Head teacher of the school, expressed gratitude to the MP for the rehabilitation of the school and appealed to individuals and organisations to support the renovation of the school toilet facility.
Mr Kojo Addo, the Agona West Chairman of NPP, lauded the MP for her support to school children of Upper Bobikuma to get quality education.
Nana Antwi Buabeng XI, the Chief Upper Bobikuma, said the chiefs and the people of the town would always remember the good things of the President and the MP and they would also play their part to ensure that education improves in the area.
Mr George Gyamfi, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Boafo Ye Na Money Lender, donated 20 bags of cement towards the rehabilitation of the school toilet facility.
He called on NPP supporters in the area to rally behind the MP to enable her to improve the living conditions of the people.
