Speaking after the donation, the MP promised to add more to the rest of the basic schools when the due time comes. According to Mr. Adom, he decided to make the donations of furniture to the basic schools after receiving persistent requests from the Education Directorate over the lack of desks for the schools.
He indicated that government schools in the constituency were bedevilled with many challenges including infrastructure, computer laboratories, and other learning and teaching materials.
“When I first visited the schools, I was surprised to see that they don’t have furniture, they have leaking roofs.’’
The MP, therefore, appealed to corporate organisations to partner the government to solve some of the challenges, saying“some basic schools in the district also need help.”
Mr Adom appealed to the Education Directorate and the beneficiary schools to maintain the desks to prolong their lifespan and derive the maximum benefit.
The management of the beneficiary basic schools commended the MP for the support and that the furniture would encourage the children to focus on their studies and improve on their educational standards.
Consequently, the MP has also donated 50 bags of cement and roofing sheets to the chief of Asikasu.
Mr Adom was accompanied by the District Chief Executive (DCE) of Upper West Akim Mr. Eugene Sackey and the District Director of Ghana Service Education including the Upper West Akim Constituency Executives.
