Appiah-Nyantakyi, the Ahafo-Ano North Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), has

A recent visit by the MCE and her team
together with some Municipal education service officials to the schools

pupils, necessitated the donation.

limited number that were in a very bad state, were also being used by just few
Madam Appiah-Nyantakyi advised the beneficiaries
to cultivate good maintenance culture for the items to last longer.
The Assembly she said, was going to ensure
that teachers and pupils were comfortable at their posts.
Mr. Oti Boakye, the Human Resource officer for
the Municipal Education Service, lauded the Assembly for their gesture and
asked that they continued to provide more of logistical support.
He said this was about the fourth time in two
years that the Assembly was supporting them but this time, the number of
furniture had increased.
