Teachers from Nkoranza North District have presented a Toyota saloon car costing 23,000 Ghana cedis to Mr James Appiah-Kusi, out-going Nkoranza North District Director of Education.
The gift is in appreciation of his effective leadership and service to the district for the past four years.
Mr Collins Osei-Bonsu, Chairman of Nkoranza North Area Teachers Welfare Club, told the GNA at a send-off at Busunya that the car was bought through voluntary contributions from the teachers.
He said they were impressed about the services rendered by Mr Kusi-Appiah especially the cordial working relationship, encouragement and support to the teachers and this had improved education in the district.
Mr Ebenezer Asare-Baah, Nkoranza Municipal Secretary of GNAT, commended the teachers and appealed to teachers in other municipalities and districts to emulate them.
Dr George Adjei-Hinneh, Brong Ahafo Regional Director of Education, urged teachers to be proud of their profession.
He said teaching added value to God’s creation through the upbringing, training and educating of children and therefore teachers should see themselves as role models in the communities.
He appealed to teachers to work with devotion in order to produce disciplined and responsible citizens as future leaders for the country, adding, “The country’s future depends on the work of teachers in the classroom”.
Mr Kwadwo Adjei-Dwomor, Nkoranza North District Chief Executive, commended Mr Appiah-Kusi for accepting posting to the newly created district in spite of the numerous challenges.
He said his leadership had made remarkable improvement in the standard of education in the district.
Mr Appiah-Kusi expressed appreciation for the unity, cooperation and support by the chiefs and people in the district during his tenure of office. GNA
