The Member of Parliament for Builsa South Constituency, Dr. Clement Abas Apaak has provided 720 Mathematical instruments to final year basic pupils ahead of their Basic Certificate Examination, (BECE).
The support according to the MP aimed to properly prepare the pupils towards the exams as well as assist those who could have struggled to acquire them.
“This initiative is a yearly thing and it is because of the understanding I have for education and knowing where I’m coming from I thought it wise to provide these instruments for the pupils. I would have loved to provide more but we all understand the kind of mess this government (NPP) has led us into. But of course, half a loaf is better than none, so, I hope and pray that the pupils will make good use of them.”
Dr. Apaak stressed further that his key focus in the constituency is to continue improving the education sector as well as women and youth empowerment especially among the deprived ones.
“As you all know, your growth and the growth of our dear constituency are the reason we are all working hard to achieve. And we can’t do it alone. None do it as fast as we want it but with collective efforts and gradual focus as we have begun in our various communities we can achieve whatever we desire. So, let us do it together and Dr. Apaak will always work towards our constituency’s growth.”
The Builsa South District Director of Education, Thomas Kanlisi, thanked the MP for his kind gesture, adding that the donation was timely and will go a long way to help the needy students.
He then appealed to the MP to assist the directorate to transport students who will be coming from distant communities to the examination centres.
A total of 720 candidates are expected to sit in for this year’s BECE in the Builsa South District.
The appeal, the MP therefore assured to support them when the time comes.
