Madam Deloris was addressing a durbar of chiefs and the people of Chereponi in the Northern region under the theme, “Five years of education development in Chereponi district; successes and challenges.” She also appealed to all the stakeholders in the education sector to put their hands on deck to ensure quality education delivery in the area. The Member of Parliament for the Chereponi, Hon. Samuel A. Abanyite pledged his commitment to improve the standard of education in the district. He said plans were afoot to persuade more investors to improve the area’s socio-economic activities. The Chereponi District Chief Executive, Hon. Mohammed Issa Abba challenged teachers and parents in the district to give off their best in the area of educating their children. He also bemoaned the attitude of some students who are unwilling to take education serious and pledged his administration’s determination to support needy but brilliant students to boost the area’s human resource base.
