Mr David Wuni, the District Chief Executive of West Mamprusi, has distributed 280 dual desks to seven basic schools in the district to help address their infrastructural challenges and improve standards of education in the district.
Mr Wuni, speaking to the press at Walewale after the presentation, said the West Mamprusi District Assembly had also initiated, as well as completed a number of school blocks to make quality education accessible to all in the district.
He said the district was under-staffed in terms of teachers, and that, he had arranged with the authorities of the Gambaga College of Education to release the first batch of its teacher trainees to serve in the district to help improve academic standards.
He said similar arrangement was also made with the Bagabaga College of Education to release some of its trainees to serve in the West Mamprusi District.
Mr Wuni appealed to development partners to partner with the district assembly in its quest to bring development to the area.
He also appealed to well-meaning organisations to assist the district to provide relief items to some of its residents affected by a recent rainstorm, which ripped off roofs of some houses and schools.
