Adopt schools in your traditional areas-Lawyer appeals to chiefs
Lawyer for the Northern Regional House of Chiefs has suggested to chiefs in the region to adopt deprived schools in their various respective traditional areas. Lawyer Yakubu Abdul Fatawu said the adoption may not necessarily mean the chiefs must be resourceful enough to champion such a worthy cause but commitment and their influence can help.
The lawyer made the suggestion whilst commenting on the what he described as very scaring statistics presented by Mr Alhassan Seibu, regional statistics and NGOs desk officer of the Ghana Education Service on poor performance of BECE and WASSCE in the northern region at Oxfam supported Norsaac meeting on Thursday October,7,2021.
Lawyer Fatawu also recommended to the chiefs to register the Trust Fund as non-profiting making company for their development partners to support them.
He further suggested to the chiefs to constitute a committee with expertise in education to identify problems and solutions to teaching and learning in their areas.
He reminded the chiefs that the only weapon for any war now is education and all efforts must be geared at improving education in the north.
He pleaded with the chiefs to prioritize education to avoid glaring danger at everyone now describing it as a time bomb. He reminded the chiefs that government’s will always have an excuse for addressing challenges comforting the country and therefore the chiefs have to do their part.
