Mr. Promise Avorgbedor, Head of Supervision, Akatsi-North Directorate of the Ghana Education Service has decried the eagerness among Junior High School leavers to go into commercial motorbike business.

He said in many instances pupils even left school to engage in that business.

Mr. Avorgbedor said this when he commissioned a new school block at Ave-Atanve.

Pencils of Promise, a US education support NGO, funded the three-room block with auxiliary rooms at GHC130,000.

Mr. Avorgbedor commended the Assembly and Mr Peter Nortsu-Kotoe, who jointly paid the 20 percent community commitment cost component of the project.

Mr. James Gunu, the District Chief Executive (DCE) said the district could not afford to slide from its 38 percent BECE performance in 2014, from a low of 17.4 the previous year.

Mr Freeman Gobah, Country Director of Pencils of Promise-Ghana said a similar project had been completed at Kpohe also in the Akatsi-North District.
