Mr Emmanuel Agyarko, New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for Ayawaso Wuogon, has commended Dr Alfred Oko Vanderpuije, Accra Metropolitan Chief Executive for bringing one of the Millennium City schools to his constituency.
The project is a three-storey 18-unit classroom block under the Urban Development Grant Two (UDG II).
Mr Agyarko who made the commendation at the sod-cutting ceremony of project at the Maamobi Prison?s Yard Cluster of schools in Accra said: ?At long last it is our turn to have one of the Millennium City schools.?
He said the only way the area could move towards achieving its developmental goals is to forge ahead in unity with positive thinking, cooperation and support of the people for the early completion of the project.
The MP said the primary responsibility of ensuring quality education is to create a friendly environment that would encourage the children to learn.
He promised to monitor the activities of the contractor to ensure good work.
Mr Agyarko expressed gratitude to the government and the Accra Metropolitan Assembly for the honour done to the community, adding: ?Now it is a dream come true to ensure quality education in the area.?
He congratulated the Prisons authority for releasing the land for the project.
At the Accra New Town Experimental and Kotobaabi Cluster of Schools Dr Vanderpuije cut the sod for the commencement of the Millennium schools each in the communities to guarantee every child quality education.
He said the Better Ghana Agenda is not slowing down but reigning very high, saying: ?The mark of excellence and commitment of His Excellency President John Dramani Mahama is to ensure quality education to Ghanaian Children.
?If we want our children to be the future leaders of tomorrow we should also make sure that we provide them with quality infrastructure and teachers who are committed to take instruction,? he said.
Dr Vanderpuije said the AMA would leave no stone unturned to ensure that all the Millennium Schools are constructed because that was the reason why the shift system was abolished.
He advised the teachers to ensure the best practices in class.
Madam Doris Sika Dzesu, Officer-in-charge of Ayawaso Central of the Ghana Education Service appealed for one of the Millennium Schools to be turned into senior high school in the district.
She said the only second cycle school in the district is Accra Technical Training Centre.
Madam Dzesu expressed gratitude to the Accra Metropolitan Chief Executive for providing the project to the people of Ayawaso Central and Wuogon.
