Mr Murtala in his speech to hand over the roofing materials which included sheets and nails said the donation is part of his widow’s might to ensure the two schools are put in shape to ensure conducive atmosphere for teaching and learning.
‘’I have been telling people that the most important aspect of education is just the quality of teachers, but the condition under which students are taught is very important’’, he noted .
Mr Murtala reiterated his commitment to do everything possible within his power to ensure that education in his constituency receive a major boost to enable children become competent professionals in the future. The Headmistress of the United Primary School Agnes Yidana commended the MP for his donation and assured it will be put to good use.

Meanwhile the Member of Parliament for the Tamale Central Constituency Ibrahim Mohammed Murtala has organized extra class sessions for over 1000 junior high students in the Tamale Metropolis in preparation for their impending Basic Education Certificate Examination.
The extra class which is in four zones, Sakasaka JHS, Zogbeli JHS, United JHS and St Peter’s JHS is costing the MP over 30000 cedis. Mr Murtala who announced this at a ceremony to donate roofing materials to two schools today, said education is the gate way to achieving success in any field of human endeavour.
He said the ravaging covid 19 pandemic and emerging socio-economic trends had shown that without quality, sound and accessible education school children will not be able to realize their full potentials.
He appealed to the students to take advantage of the extra classes to improve themselves academically. He noted the programme is not discriminatory saying students from other constituencies are even allowed to attend.
