President John Mahama, inaugurated the Kwaobaah Nyanoa Community Day School at a ceremony in the district.
The construction of the Community Day Schools is a major manifesto promise and part of government’s vision to allow access and expand education across the country.
President John Mahama, again stated that he’s decision to invest hugely in infrastructure development may not be popular or politically expedient for some critics but the goal is to leave a lasting legacy.
The ceremony was not only symbolic but historic, because barely two years ago, President Mahama stood on that very grounds to cut the sod for the commencement of two hundred community day schools across the country.
The Kwaobaah Nyanoa Community Day SHS is the fourth the President is inaugurating.
It will accommodate about a thousand students and has modern facilities like a science laboratory and a well-stocked library.
Even though there are a few Senior High Schools in the Upper West Akyem District, this is the first Day school.
The Chief of Nyanoa and Benkumhene of Asamankese, Baffuor Kwaku Arko, on behalf of the Chief of Asamankese Osabarima Adu Darko expressed his joy because government had fulfilled two promises made to them.
The first was the completed Senior High School and secondly, ongoing works on the poor road network.
Referring to the President as Oseadeayoo meaning someone who walks the talk, Nana Arko pledged total commitment to the NDC government
President Mahama, reiterated his commitment to ensure that the educational sector receives a major boost.
He announced that to make true the policy of local content, all textbooks needed for learning are to be printed locally and distributed to the schools.
President Mahama, invited local printing press to go and bid for the contract.
Outlining his changing lives and transforming Ghana agenda, the President stated that his aim is not to take populist decisions but tough ones that will translate into a lasting legacy for generations unborn.
Minister of Education Professor Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang, charged the students, parents and the Community to let the facility serve the purpose for which it was provided for.
