Just as we hinted you yesterday [Tuesday] on the commencement of Mahama’s Accounting to the People in the Greater Accra Region, the president has just handed 500 vehicles to Greater Accra schools.
As part of his programme for the day, President John Mahama presented 500 vehicles to schools in the Greater Accra Region at a ceremony Tuesday, in his ‘Accounting to the People’ tour in the region which kicked off same day.
The 500 vehicles comprised 100 Nissan Navara pickups, 100 Mahindra pickups, 200 33-seater buses and 100 66-seater buses. This move forms part of his administration’s commitment to ensuring delivery of quality education in the country.
Presenting the vehicles to the Greater Accra Schools, President Mahama emphasized that his government would not relent in their efforts to ensure the provision of quality education at all levels in the region.
He therefore stated, that the provision of the 500 buses is also in line with the aforementioned objective – government’s commitment to providing and improving delivery of quality and efficient education.
According to the president, the beneficiaries of the vehicles are to include, all new Community Day Senior High Schools, existing public Colleges of Education, newly absorbed Colleges of Education, schools in newly created districts, special needs schools, polytechnics that will soon be converted to technical universities in September, public universities, a few private universities, and existing Senior High Schools that have never benefited from previously distributed vehicles.
He also indicated that as part of achieving the above aim, construction of new basic and secondary schools have commenced, as well as the expansion of infrastructure in already existing ones.
The President is still on course his tour of the Greater Accra region. Stay tuned; we’ll certainly keep you updated as more events unfold.
