Mr Paul Evans Aidoo, Western Regional Minister, on Friday inaugurated a six-unit classroom, an office, library and four-seater W/C toilet costing GHc140, 000 at Ekpu near Half-Assini in the Jomoro District.
Speaking at the ceremony, which formed part of the Minister’s working visit to the area, he said promoting education in the country should be a shared responsibility between Government and parents.
Mr Aidoo said Government would provide the classrooms and teachers while the parents would be expected to send their children to school.
He said the projects being executed would make the people in the area not to regret for voting the National Democratic Congress (NDC) into power.
Mr. Aidoo appealed to parents to seek redress with School Management Committees and the Parent-Teacher Associations concerning their children rather than physically attacking teachers.
Mr Sylvester Daddieh, Jomoro District Chief Executive said the project was in fulfillment of the NDC’s 2008 campaign promise to the community.
He appealed to the people to plant tree seedlings in the community to serve as wind-break.
Mr Nelson Nyankey, Public Relations Officer of the Jomoro District Education Directorate, commended Government for promoting education in the country.
He asked parents to send their children to school to justify the huge investment government was making in education.
Mr Benle Armo-Kyie, an elder of Ekpu, on behalf of the chiefs, thanked Government for the executing of the school project, and appealed for the provision of Information and Communication Technology Centre, computers, furniture and extension of the School Feeding Programme to the school. GNA
