Interacting with the school children, the MP told them quality education remained the solid and surest legacy government and their parents could bequeath them to grow and become useful adults in society.

She advised the children to develop interest and endeavour to read wide, concentrate on their books, and avoid roaming about to enable them to achieve academic success.

Dr Prempeh reminded the students the government’s flagship Free Senior High School (FSHS) programme was introduced to pave the way for particularly the needy to access secondary education, thereafter continue to pursue and achieve high academic laurels.

But, she added they could benefit from the programme if they learn hard and pass their exams well.

Dr Prempeh later presented some education materials to the Tano North Municipal Directorate of education for onward distribution to the schools she could not visit.

Mr Seth Kofi Dankwa, the Tano North Deputy Director of Education who accompanied the Minister received the items, and thanked her, saying, the items were timely, and would advance teaching and learning in the schools.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
