Mr. Martin Eson- Benjamin, the Chief Executive Officer of the Millennium Development Authority (MiDA), unveiled a plaque as part of activities to commission rehabilitated schools at Pakro in the Akuapim South Municipality over the weekend.
Mr. Martin in his speech last Friday admitted that he was happy the school project was completed successfully. He continued to say that he was overwhelmed by the turnout of all the dignitaries and the District Chief Executive (Akuapim South Municipal), Honourable Doctor Osei Bonsu to grace the occasion and that he has seen the importance the people of Pakro attach to education.
He explained that one of the key projects of the Development Projects of the Millennium Challenge Account (MCA) Ghana Programme is to provide community service in support of Agricultural Transformation Programme. This support, he added covers the rehabilitation and construction of Kindergarten and primary schools, provision of portable water, sanitary facilities and the provision of electricity to rural areas and cottage industries in selected farming communities within 30 beneficiary Districts.
Mr. Martin added that the United States Agency for international development (USAID) has also agreed to address the unmet demand for quality teachers in MiDA – constructed schools. They have identified unqualified individuals to be trained by the international foundation for education and self- help (IFESH) to teach in MiDA Schools that are experiencing shortage of teachers. He further explained that the programme has already been launched in Amankwakrom in the Kwahu North District on the 16th day of July this year.
“I will like to reiterate the need to maintain these schools.” He added. He urged the district assembly, parent teacher associations and school management committees to undertake periodic and routine maintenance schemes to keep the buildings in good shape all the time.
