At the Eastern Region’s Akim Oda, the Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has inaugurated an ultra-modern technological hub.
The facility includes an ICT Center, a Robotics Center, and a well-stocked library.
Vice President Bawumia remarked during the commissioning that the facility’s creation was intended to support people’s educational growth for the benefit of the neighborhood and the country as a whole.
He continued by saying that President Akufo- Addo’s administration takes pride in investing in education because of its significant influence on the people and the country. For this reason, a lot of money is being put into different parts of education in an effort to increase access and quality.
“Indeed, education is the backbone of every community and every nation; that is why the NPP Government has made education more accessible, especially to people from underprivileged backgrounds,” Dr. Bawumia said.
He claimed that the establishment of the Free Senior High School (SHS) and Free Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) policies had given children of both the rich and the disadvantaged in this country similar opportunity to complete secondary level education.
“Now as a parent, all you need is to get your child through the Junior High School (JHS) successfully and your child will have access to free secondary education,” the Vice President added, reiterating government’s commitment to the Free SHS project despite the current economic challenges.
He, therefore, urged parents and students “to make the best of it, to change the fortunes of families and communities.”
“For Ghana to sustain growth in its economic performance, the need to build a literate society cannot be underestimated. Children in their formative years require consistent exposure to books and other learning resources to build and sustain interest in reading and also for knowledge, and Ghana cannot be a learning nation if it does not prioritise access to knowledge resources,” Dr. Bawumia noted.
“It is therefore exciting for this community to have this facility built and well-resourced to provide the critical interventions and support required to lift the standard of education in this community.”
