Mr Gunu was addressing a ceremony to welcome the First Runner up of the 2013 Ghana?s Most Beautiful (GMB), Miss Juliana Bubune Tititia, who visited the area on Tuesday.

The visit of the 26-year-old Beauty Queen would serve as a role model by way of encouraging girl-child education in the face of the many pitfalls they faced, including early motherhood.

The DCE said an assessment had been put in place to review the performance of Area Councils in area based on girl-child education, revenue mobilization and sanitation, to wake up the people in the communities to their roles.

He said members of the Girls Education Club would be taken on a tour of Parliament as motivation.

Miss Titiati who hails from the Volta Region advised the pupils to remain humble, hardworking, respectful and shun bad company.

She also asked education stakeholders to help fight early pregnancies in the area.

The Beauty Queen donated exercise books and writing materials to deserving pupils from the five Area Councils and members of the Girls Education Club.
