Mr Carlos Kingley Ahenkorah, New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) Parliamentary Candidate for Tema West, says the party would reverse the low level of confidence in public schools, especially at the basic level.
He said Ghanaians should give the NPP the chance to rule the country in the November 7 polls to fix the fallen standards of education.
“Schools such as Oninku used to perform well but now they are all not doing well as expected. I have identified that for us to improve on the standards of our public schools. Some of these challenges would have to be tackled. Educational standards in the public schools have …gone down,” he said.
Mr Ahenkorah said this when he interacted with newsmen at his campaign office at Sakumono at the weekend.
He said the issue of job creation continued to be a major focus of the NPP, adding that the party would unearth the potential of the youth to be able to find jobs in all the sectors of the economy.
Mr Ahenkorah said “One factory per district by Nana Addo is coming to the fore. Some of the district don’t even need factories at all for instance in Tema, but we need it outside the capital.
He said women would be empowered to be self-sufficient in order to help address challenges they are confronted with.
Mr Ahenkorah advised the youth to make choices that could affect them positively because “anything the youth will do will have repercussions in their life. They have chances and so should make very good choices in life”.
