And apart from these that I have mentioned, I have received a lot of appeal from the various basic school headmasters and I decided to embark on this initiative.”
Mr. Odoom. urged teachers in the district to work assiduously to improve the BECE results.

The Ghana Education Service (GES) director of Asikuma Odoben Beakwa, Mr Stephen Aidoo, said, furniture is one of their greatest challenges and that, the donated pieces of dual desks will give some students a sigh of relief they can now study comfortably without lying on their bellies..
