PRESIDENT TELLS GHANAIANS EDUCATION IS KEY TO SUCCESS

WA, GHANA– President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has told Ghanaians yjay yje country will not realise the desired goals unless the total education of the people becomes the central concern for all in society.

Societies like the United States, Japan, Republic of Korea, India, Canada and China, among others, have prospered and continue to prosper because they saw education as their main concern to empower the people, he said at a meeting with the Upper West Regional (Provincial) House of Chiefs in the Region’s capital, Wa, on Wednesday.

Without an empowered society, the process of national development would be seriously challenged, said the president, who added that the government had introduced free senior high school education in 2017 with the aim of ensuring that young Ghanaians, regardless of social and economic standing, received a minimum of senior high school education.

The programme attracted 90,000 more students last year and the figure could climb to 180,000 this year to give a further boost to access to education in the country, he said.

President Akufo-Addo said the government would recruit 8,000 more teachers to match the projected increase in students, adding that about 43,000 applicants of the Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) were teachers.

He said the government was determined to employ the teachers to fill the gap for teachers in the country’s education sector.
