Mr. Gyan said the government would continue to invest in education in order to improve the country’s human resource base.

He commended TICO and TAQA for their shining examples and urged other corporate bodies to follow their steps.

Mr. Dan Dexter, Vice President of TAQA in-charge of operations, said the company had great interest in the development of the countries and communities in which it operated.

Therefore, he said, the company would always appoint personnel who had the development of the Shama District and the country at heart.

Mr. Enoch Appiah, District Chief Executive for Shama, used the occasion to appeal to the Ghana Education Service to change the name of the Sekondi School for the Deaf to Inchaban School for the Deaf because it is situated at Inchaban in the Shama District.

He commended TICO and TAQA for assisting the Shama District Assembly to organize mock examinations for Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) candidates.

Mr. Appiah said the BECE results of the district had improved as a result of the mock examinations.

Nana Osafo Kantaka, General Manager of TICO, expressed disappointment that a community library constructed and stocked by the company at Shama was not being utilized.
