The Nabdam District Director of the Ghana Education Service (GES), Madam Mary-Magdalene Wompakeah, has expressed her frustration over the persistent lack of essential administrative resources at the directorate for effective work.

She revealed the severe inadequacies in basic office supplies such as A4 sheets, printing machines, and even chairs, which have forced staff to work under suboptimal conditions.

“It’s embarrassing that we have to print letters at nearby cafés because we don’t have A4 sheets. Look around, there are none. These are our major concerns, and we need help.”

Speaking to our reporter, Moses Apiah, the Director stressed that most of her staff often sit under trees to work.

“Most of my staff, after signing their names, will have to go out there and sit under that mango tree to work because we don’t have chairs in the office.”

Her comments came during a donation ceremony led by the Member of Parliament, Dr. Mark-Kurt Nawaane, who provided teaching and learning materials worth thousands of Ghana Cedis to support over 700 students preparing for the 2024 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).

The MP’s donation included 800 mathematical sets and 800 exercise books, aimed at addressing the material shortages faced by students, particularly those from financially disadvantaged families.

While assuring the director of supporting her outfit with the necessary tools, Dr. Nawaane further explained the importance of education and urged the students to commit to their studies.

“You are the future leaders of this country. Take your studies seriously, and I promise to always be here to support your educational needs,” he told the students.

Students expressed their relief and gratitude for the support.

One student shared her experience: “I told my parents about the importance of having a mathematical set for the exams, but they said they didn’t have the money. They asked me to pray so that before the exam day came, they would get money to buy it for me. I’m so happy the Honourable has helped me with one.”

Madam Wompakeah, however, acknowledged the MP’s efforts and called for further support from other institutions to improve the educational infrastructure in the district.
