The Vice President in an address stated that President Akuffo-Addo believes that his government had the importance of educational reforms rolled out since 2017 which will come to nothing provided they supply the necessary logistical needs for schools to go on effectively as they conveyed their directives for their Ghanaian child.
“Our schools have various challenges in the discharge of their administrative functions, and these vehicles, I am sure, will go a long way to help smooth these,” he said.
The Vice President as well gave 493 out of a total 2,000 motorbikes acquired to support the work of circuit supervisors and to further promote their supervisory roles in the education sector.
