The Presby unit of the Ghana Education Service (G.E.S) in Tamale has honored the member of parliament for Tamale Central, Alhaji Inusah Fuseini with a citation for his unflinching support in improving the school’s infrastructure at Tamale Presby Primary and Junior High School popularly called Kulikuli School.
The honour was in recognition of the MPs contribution towards making the school conducive for teaching and learning.
Managers of Presby unit said they have no regrets being in Alhaji Inusah’s constituency and are delighted at his immense contribution, dedicated leadership and tireless efforts in promoting education and health among others.
Alhaji Inusah, who is also the Roads and Highways Minister, after several media reports about the deplorable nature and lack of furniture at the Kulikuli School, made a pledge to rehabilitate the school to enable teaching and learning to go on smoothly.
Before the minister opened his heart to help the school, the lack of furniture had compelled students to take notes while lying prostrate on their stomachs during lesson hours in structures that were death traps for both students and teachers alike.
The Roads and Highways Minister, last year, provided 400 metal dual desks to the school and pledged ten thousand Ghana cedis to renovate the deplorable three-unit nursery block.
The delighted head teacher, Zakaria Amadu Seidu and the Presby Unit manageress, Madam Theodora said if all northern MPs were like Alhaji Inusah, the region will have better facilities or be better able to compete with other regions in terms of modern facilities.
The head teacher appealed to the MP to assist the school to a get science laboratory and a fence wall. They urged northerners in the leadership to emulate the roads minister’s kind gesture.
Alhaji Inusah, after handing over the renovated block to the school’s management today, reiterated his commitment towards transforming Tamale central through education and extending his support to the sixty-years-old Methodist primary school.
He promised to invest in schools for the betterment of future leaders.
“I know that, these students will be lawyer Inusahs and legislators in Tamale when we are no more there and we must make their learning environment friendly for them, ” the minister said.
