The donation forms part of the Mr Asenso-Boakye’s contribution to education in the area where he was born and also support government’s quest in improving education in the country.
Mr Asenso-Boakye, who was accompanied by the Kumasi Metropolitans Assembly’s Mayor, Mr Osei Assibey Antwi, and Member of Parliament for Bantama, Mr Daniel Aboagye, interacted with pupils and teachers of the beneficiary schools.
“The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has made education the central plank of his industrialisation and ‘Ghana beyond aid’ agenda. Education is our most secured investment and best bet out of poverty,” Mr Asenso said.
He continued, “We must harness the value and power of education to inform and transform our society. We owe it a duty to inculcate the habit of reading in our children and the youth if we must spawn generational thinkers and leaders.”
Mr Asenso-Boakye urged the constituents to support the efforts of the government to transform Ghana into a prosperous country for all irrespective of gender, tribe, ethnicity or political affiliation.
