Representatives of the Member of Parliament (MP) for Asokwa, Madam Patricia Appiagyei Friday morning distributed mathematical sets to pupils who are about to sit for the Basic Education Certificate Examinations (BECE) in Asokwa.
The gesture is part of the humanitarian MP’s annual project to pupils who are in JHS Three and are preparing for their BECE papers.
This year, just like all the previous years the MP has been donating, about 30 schools within the Asokwa Municipality are benefitting from the largesse.
Addressing the pupils at separate functions such as Dompoase, Chirapatre, Atonsu, Kaase and Ahensan Francis Adomako, Ashanti Regional Organizer of the NPP who deputized for the MP encouraged the candidates to do their best in the exams.
‘’I know your teachers have given you all their best in preparing you for the exams and it is time for you to deliver what they have deposited in you all these three years’’, Mr Adomako passionately intimated.
Mr Adomako urged parents to offer some respite to their wards who are preparing for the exams.
He noted the few days left for the start of the exams is crucial to enable the pupils relax and reflect on all they have studied in school.
The Regional organizer said any undue and unnecessary pressure on any of the pupils will have an effect of the performance they put up in the exams.
Mr Adomako, however, charged the students to do their best in making the MP proud by coming out with good grades so as to also benefit from the free senior high education policy the NPP has implemented.
‘’While you give off your best to get good grades to qualify to benefit from the free SHS policy also aspire to become like Mama Pat who was like you but studied hard to become who she is today, an MP and Deputy Minister for Science, Technology, Environment and Innovation’’, the NPP regional organizer emphasized.
Speaking to this reporter, Chelsea Fosu Ntiamoah, JHS three pupil at Mother Smith Junior High School expressed profuse appreciation to the MP for the gesture.
The mathematical sets, she noted will remind them of the MP’s charge on them to do well in the exams anytime they enter the hall.
Expressing similar appreciation, Asokwa NPP Second Vice Chairman, Michael Addo accompanied by Papa Yaw Asare Bediako, Constituency Secretary, Felix Appiah, Treasurer, Nana Gyamfi, Director of Communications at the Asokwa branch thanked the MP for her kindness.
Each of the 14 elected Assembly members for the communities in Asokwa also intimated that the gesture will spur the pupils on to do well in their impending exams on Monday, the 10th of December, 2019.
