Emmanuel Armah-Kofi Buah, Minister for Energy and Petroleum

The Member of Parliament (MP) for Ellembelle Mr Emmanuel Armah-Kofi Buah, in collaboration with the Ellembelle District Directorate of Education, has launched the MP’s Book Club project in basic schools in the District.

The initiative is to make reading more fun and encourage pupils and students in the District to make reading and knowledge acquisition a life-long habit.

Launching the project, Mr Kofi Buah said the idea was to create book clubs in all the schools, where learners could access books on English Language, Literature, Mathematics, and Science, among others to sharpen their reading skills, linguistic competence and broaden their literary experience and horizons of other subjects.

The MP said the book club project would benefit basic schools in the District and later students in second cycle schools.

Mr Kofi Buah said experts and celebrities in the various subject areas would come in and read with the school children to motivate them to acquire reading and writing skills.

The former Minister for Petroleum said pupils and students could borrow books at weekends and return them within a stipulated time.

Mr Buah said the book club project would help broaden the horizon of school children and engender confidence in them at the very early stages of education.
