Upper West Regional Minister Alhaji Sulemana Alhassan has urged young people to see education as a priority since it remains a potent weapon for economic transformation and the speedy development of every society.

“There is no society that can advance and be able to cope with the dictates of global trends without paying attention to its culture and education”.

He added that “culture and education are bed fellows in our contemporary world”.

Alhaji Alhassan was speaking during the celebration of 42nd “Kobine Festival” of the people and chiefs of Lawra.

He said the government had instituted pragmatic education policies and programmes to tackle challenges in the education sector.

It was poised to address the country’s physical infrastructure deficit in the education sector through construction and maintenance of classroom blocks as well as the supply of furniture and other logistics to schools.

The Minister said steps were being taken to make sure that the quality of education was not compromised with the introduction of the free Senior High School (SHS) policy.

The government had introduced a “Double Track System” to deal with the increased student admission following the introduction of free education policy in senior high schools in 2017.

Alhaji Alhassan said the Ghana School Feeding Programme was receiving much attention than before with school enrolment in the Lawra Municipality growing by 14,457 and covering almost all Primary and Kindergarten schools in the municipality.
