The assembly member for Kofi Kwei Electoral Area in the Ga South Municipality, Mr. Pius Fiakuna, has appealed to the government and benevolent individuals to assist students who have passed this year?s Basic Education Certificate Examination in his area.
He said about 20 parents had contacted him to help them to access scholarship packages for their wards to enter the senior high school.
Mr Fiakuma said poverty among his people was so high that many parents found it difficult to support their children in school.
He said those who had contacted him had aggregates ranging from 20 to 36 which, to him, were impressive.
Mr. Fiakuna said failure to have these children supported to continue their education would further deepen their development problems as many of them could fall into social vices.
