Apaak fulfills promise; hands over new kindergarten block to Uwasi Zuasa people 

Story: Reuben Sackey 

Member of Parliament (MP)  for Builsa South constituency in the Upper East region Dr. Clement Apaak has handed over a KG block constructed at Zuasa in Uwasi. 

The vociferous MP who said, it was a promise he made to his people in his address during the  handing over ceremony  said, “in every society it is believed education is the key to a nation’s development”.

To this end, he called for conceited effort to ensure that every level of education especially,  the pre-primary stage, was given the necessary recognition by the government.

He noted that, the pre-primary education was  the bedrock upon which all other educational levels  could  be built  on.

 According to the Builsa South legislature, the sustainable development goals enjoined “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”. 

Dr 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. 

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, on behalf of his people, expressed  his profound gratitude to Dr. Apaak for construting   such a school in his community. He also thanked him for  many other  things he had done  for the community.  

Naab Abiak Jacob Amwaanya II, whilst eulogizing the MP for the many social amenities he had  done said that he  was  a true epitome of a good leader and wished  that he would  one day accept a wife from the people of Uwasi to solidify their true relationship.

 He, however, asked the MP to assist the community with more teachers, and lobby for their roads and electricity to be fixed as that would  propel the community  for growth and development.

The district director of education Mr. Thomas Kanlisi on his part  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 . He encouraged parents to show interest in their wards’ education and report teachers who show lazy attitudes towards work to the education directorate.
