Member of Parliament for the Effutu constituency, Alexander Kwamena Afenyo-Markin, has entreated Ghanaians to take advantage of President Akufo-Addo’s Free Senior High School (FSHS) programme which has so far enrolled about 1.2 million Ghanaian children.
Unveiling a library project he constructed for the people of Atekyedo in the Effutu Municipality, the astute lawyer made a profound statement about how important Free SHS is and urged parents to ensure that they send their kids to school.
Dismissing the assertion that Free SHS is for partisanship, and making a stronger case for it to be embraced by all Ghanaians, the Effutu MP said;
“It is not about partisan interest. It is about the future of Effutu and Ghana. Free SHS is more valuable than silver and gold”
The Member of Parliament was taking the wraps off a library project he singlehandedly built for the Atekyedo community.
He urged school-going children in the community to make judicious use of their time and the library as that is the only way they could acquire the requisite knowledge and skills in order to fit into the internet age.
The library was named after an illustrious son of the land, Nana Amponsah the First. The community was grateful for the Nana Amponsah I Library and promised to make good use of it.
