The Deputy Minister for Works and Housing and Member of Parliament for Binduri constituency in the Upper East Region, Abdulai Abanga on Monday, August 7th, 2023, distributed 1,036 mathematical instruments. The MP also gave out a total amount of Ghc15,540 to support candidates sitting for the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) in the area. 

The initiative, according to the MP, aimed at boosting the candidates’ morale and also assisted them with their travelling and feeding expenses during the period. 

“I was once like them so I understand the challenges some of them might be facing. And I know that this initiative will not fully solve some of the challenges, especially their feeding but at least it will sustain them for a while. So, all that I want from them is for them to put their focus on the exams and excel. I must say that I will surprise them all if their pass mark reaches 100%.” 

This year, the district presented a total of 1,036 students for the examination. 491 were males and 545 were females.  The students came from 29 public and 8 private schools.

Impressed with the girl-child population of the candidates, the MP encouraged parents at all times to ensure they cater for the needs of their girls as they do with their boy-child in the sector of formal education. 

“I’m so impressed to see a figure such as this regarding the number of girls sitting in for the exam this year. I’m making a passionate appeal to all parents to see to it that their girls’ needs always come first in terms of the education sector. Also, teachers and school heads, please do well to encourage our girls to be performing well in whatever subject in the classrooms.” 

Mr. Abanga discouraged malpractice among students.
