Speaking at separate durbars to commission the projects, Mrs Akomeah said the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), was committed to improving educational infrastructure at all levels of education.

She said education was an inalienable right of the Ghanaian child and gave the assurance that government would continue to invest in the sector to raise the literacy level of the country.

This, she said, was the way to go as a country in our quest to fight poverty and called on the people to rally behind government as it rolled out pragmatic policies for the common good of all Ghanaians.

She pledged the Assembly’s commitment to implement programmes and policies in line with the vision of the President to improve lives of people in the Municipality.

He called for the extension of electricity to the facility to make it operational as soon as possible to achieve its intended purpose.
