Vice President Bawumia has donated a 32-seater bus to T I Ahmadiya Senior High School (T. I Amass), Kumasi on Friday, 30 August 2019.
The Second Lady, Hajia Samira Bawumia, did the presentation on behalf of Bawumia.
The donation was in fulfilment of a promise made by the Vice President to the school last year during its 68th speech and prize-giving day.
The Second Lady praised T.I Ahmadiyya Senior High School for its sterling performance in academics and extra-curricular activities.
“T.I Amass has produced some of the finest brains in all areas of our national life. The school has churned out a number of distinguished Ghanaians who are occupying prestigious positions such as Members of Parliament, Vice-Chancellors of Universities, Deans, lecturers, doctors, to mention but a few, in various establishments, and sports, ” Mrs Bawumia said.
Speaking on behalf of the school, the Headmaster, Alhaji Yakub Bin Abubakar, thanked Vice President Bawumia and Hajia Samira Bawumia for fulfilling the promise they made to the school last year.
“The bus will ease the transportation problems of the school. We are profoundly grateful to Alhaji Dr Mahamudu Bawumia for the honour done us. May Allah reward you Alhaji,” the headmaster prayed.
T.I. Ahmadiyya Senior High School, established in 1950, was the first Muslim Mission School founded in the country. It has since grown to become one of the leading Senior High Schools not just in the Ashanti Region, but also in the nation.
Its position as a pioneering institution founded on Islamic faith has served as a great inspiration to the establishment of many other Islamic educational institutions at different levels in the country.
