The Municipal Education Directorate of the Ghana Education Service (GES) in the Lower Manya Krobo Municipal Assembly will soon boast of its own permanent office after some 44 years of operations.
This hope comes after the Municipal Chief Executive for the area, Simon Kwaku Tetteh broke the grounds on Monday for the construction of a permanent office for the directorate which has been operating from a rented apartment since 1975.
The new office complex to be situated opposite Our Lady of Fatima School at Kpong, will also host other arms of the GES.
The MCE in his brief address during the sod cutting ceremony appreciated President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for the trust on him to lead the developmental agenda of such a great Municipality.
“The Nana Akufo-Addo led NPP government through the Municipal Assembly under my leadership will work very hard to uplift the standard of education in the Municipality, we have started the initiations and commissioning of some classroom blocks for schools in the Municipality, this our objective can’t be achieved without giving our Municipal Education Directorate a befitting office for it’s operations which is to be completed by January 2020”.
He assured the gathering of his commitment to continue with the transformational agenda he has initiated to uplift up the local economy.
Madam Agnes Akweley Attipoe, who represented the Municipal Education Director applauded the MCE for the bold decision to help relieve officers of the directorate from the stress they go through in delivering their mandate to see the upgrade in the standard of education in the Municipality over the past fourty-four year. She was hopeful that the project will be completed on time.
The short ceremony was graced by officers from the Lower Manya Krobo Municipal Assembly led by the Municipal Coordinating Director, Jemima Apedo Kallikrates.
Others were officers from the Municipal Education Directorate, the Constituency Executives of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in Lower Manya Krobo Constituency and sections of the general public.
