Hon. Dr. Clement Apaak Hands Over A Newly Constructed Kindergarten Block To The Uwasi Zuasa People.*

Dr. Clement Apaak has handed over a KG block constructed at Zuasa in Uwasi. In his handing over message he postulated that, in every society it is believed education is the key to a nation’s development. He called for the need to maintain every level of education especially the pre-primary stage, because it is the bedrock upon which all other educational levels build on and that the sustainable development goals en-joins us to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education for all, as it promotes lifelong learning opportunities. He emphasized that all girls and boys should have equal access to quality early childhood development and care as it inculcates in them a smooth transition from the home to the school environment which serves as a natural means to unlocking a child’s natural gifted talents.

Hon. Apaak further indicated that, it was against this backdrop that when the Uwasi Chief and his people requested for the school he did not hesitate but to lobby and press on for this school to be built to lessen the distance children have to trek each day to the Uwasi central primary school. He admonished the people of Uwasi to continue to remain united with him and other developmental partners to bring development to the area. In conclusion, Dr. Apaak reassured them of his committed and unrelenting efforts in lobbing for more projects to mitigate the many lagging needs of the people.

The Chief of Uwasi Naab. Abiak Jacob Amwaanya, receiving the school on behalf of his people, expresses his profound gratitude to Dr. Clement Apaak for establishing such a school in his community and the many things he has done whenever he’s called upon and assured him they will be watch dogs over the school.

Naab. Abiak Jacob Amwaanya II, Whilst eulogizing the MP for the many social amenities he’s done his community stated that he is a true epitome of a good leader and wish that he will one day accept a wife from the people of Uwasi to solidify their true relationship but like Oliver Twist will always asked for more, asked the MP to assist the community with more teachers, and lobby for their roads and electricity to be fixed as that will propel the community growth and development.

The district director of education Mr. Thomas Kanlisi accepting the school for GES thanked the MP for similar school projects he is constructing in other parts of the district to ease the many difficulties children face in accessing early childhood education. He assured the MP that a teacher will immediately be assigned to the school to start admitting pupils to the school. He encouraged parents to show interest in their wards’ education and report teachers who show lazy attitudes towards work to the education directorate.
