Dr Freda Prempeh, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Tano North Constituency in the Ahafo Region, has presented a 52-seater bus to the Yamfo Vocational Training Institute to facilitate the movement of students outside campus.
The MP, also a Minister of State in charge of Works and Housing, told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) interview that she lobbied for the bus following an appeal by the school.
Dr Prempeh pledged her commitment to ensuring that deficits in educational infrastructure in the constituency were tackled to facilitate effective teaching and learning to enhance the performance of students.
The MP said she was already aware of the many challenges confronting the school and commended the teachers and non-teaching staff for their selfless services despite the challenges.
Dr Prempeh also interacted with the school’s Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) and asked the association to support the school’s infrastructure development.
Mr Philip Effah Atakorah, the head of the institution, expressed appreciation to the MP for her support towards the progress of the institute.
He said a mechanised borehole constructed by the MP had greatly helped to address the perennial acute water shortage in the institute but added the institute required more classrooms as well as standard workshops, tools and equipment to facilitate practical studies.
