Quality education is at centre of Government policy - Veep Amissah-Arthur

 

Nyinahin, Nov. 29, GNA - Vice President Paa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur on Wednesday placed quality of education at the centre of Government policy and said only a systematic approach to education would guarantee an excellent human resource development.

 To that end, he said the Government would not put the cart before the horse in the education policy, but would provide universal access, logistics other improved facilities for teaching and learning.

 The Vice President gave the assurance at separate durbars with the chiefs and people of some communities during his campaign tour of the Ashanti Region.

Vice President Amissah-Arthur described development and progress as natural desires of every society, and said the NDC Government was committed to providing quality education at all levels because it believed education was at the centre of development.

The NDC, the Vice President said, will continue a fair and equitable distribution of national resources and development projects and asked the people to consider the track record of the party and retain it in power in the next polls.

At Nyinahin in the Atwima Mponua Constituency, Vice President Amissah-Arthur inspected the progress of work on a completed 12-unit classroom block, a six-unit classroom block and a teachers’ bungalow for the Nyinahin Catholic Senior High School, financed by the Ghana Education Trust Fund.

Crowds of people in NDC paraphernalia milled to the Roman Park to participate in the durbar and listen to the Vice President on what programmes the NDC would roll out when it gets the nod to continue to govern the nation from 2012 to 2013.

Nana Captain Asiama Poku Afrifa, Toasehene and Member of the Council of State, said the people of the Area were grateful to the NDC Government for the number of development projects, especially in respects to education.

The chiefs made a gift donation to the Vice President in appreciation of Government's development projects in area in the last four years. Vice President Amissah Arthur had earlier paid a courtesy call on Nana Wiafe Akenten, Paramount Chief  of Offinso Traditional Area at his palace in Offinso and addressed a durbar.

Nana Akenten commended President Mahama and Vice President Amissah-Arthur for their calm posture in the face of provocation from political opponents and social commentators, and urged them to keep that calm to maintain the peace of the nation.

He observed that in some other regimes in the past, there would have been mayhem due to Government's occasional arrests of political opponents and people of divergent views with some even exiled.

Nana Akenten urged politicians to be civil in their utterances to keep the peace of the nation.

The Vice President earlier commissioned a boys’ dormitory complex at the Akomadan Senior High School and advised the students to strive for excellence in their studies.
