GIFEC extends electricity to Asuboi

Mr Nyarko explains how the generator works to Nana Amankwaa

Local schools at Asuboi in the Offinso Municipality of the Ashanti Region now have electricity to enhance unrestrained teaching and learning.

This is after the Ghana Investment Fund for Electronic Communications donated a Kipor Power Generator to provide electricity to both classrooms and teachers’ bungalows in the town.

It is in fulfillment of a promise by the Administrator of GIFEC, Kofi Attor, when he presented laptops to the schools following a report by Nhyira FM’s Ohemeng Tawiah on the plight of pupils.

Administrator of GIFEC, Kofi Attor, who first presented laptops to the schools following a report by Nhyira FM’s Ohemeng Tawiah on the plight of pupils also promised to donate a generator.

Now pupils in local schools who hitherto have not seen nor touch a computer can now experience the magic of computers-at least they can feel keyboard of computers.

The Ghana Investment for Electronic Communications hopes with the provision of power the lot of the children would further improve.

An Assistant Technical Officer at GIFEC, Edmund Nyarko is happy the fund has provided the less privileged with some hope.

The Kipor 5.0 KVA generator also supply power to two teachers bungalows in the community.

The chiefs and people of Asuboi could not hold back their happiness for the gesture.

The Odikro for the community, Nana Kwadwo Amankwaah on behalf of the people
thanked GIFEC for the gesture.

Head teacher of Asuboi Primary School, Amponsah Antwi, tells Nhyira News a comprehensive educational reformation program has been drawn up to improve academic performance of both teachers and children.

According to him, pupils will have no excuse to poor performance. As part of measure, pupils would be forced to attend classes in the night to improve on their performance.

Schools in the area have been recording zero per cent in the Basic Education Certificate Examinations.

The prevalence of river blindness which afflicted about 80 per cent of the over 2500 residents and their children, negatively affected not only academic standards, but enrollment as well.

With treatment now available, the situation is now improving with the pupil and student population of the primary and Junior High Schools having increased from 256 to over 800.

Amponsah Antwi said with the generator coming on board, he hopes the school will record some tremendous improvement in next year’s Basic Education Examination Certificate.
