The Vice President Kwesi Amissah Arthur, has urged voters to retain the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in office given the party’s successes in the education sector.
Ammissah Arthur who was addressing voters in the Tain Constituency of the Brong Ahafo Region said the NDC government had made education in Ghana attractive for other West African nationals to were trooping into the country in order to take advantage of the services on offer.
According to him the government’s work on improving both access to and quality of education will make Ghanaian students competitive at the global level.
“We have also improved the facilities within the classroom. We have provided more science education, we have provided computers and so on to allow people from the very early stage of the school programme to be able to become comfortable with new technology,” he said.
“At the secondary level, we have provided new classrooms, we have provided dormitory blocks, we have provided science laboratories to enable students to be better. At the tertiary level, we have done similar things.
“Now all the English speaking countries in West Africa prefer to come to Ghanaian universities rather than go to universities in their countries so that shows that the quality is improving…We want you to vote for President Mahama so he can continue with these important things that he is doing,” Amissah Arthur added.
He made the remarks when he commissioned a girls’ dormitory for the Jinijini Senior High School on the third day of his campaign tour in the Brong Ahafo region.
