Former NPP Aspirant for Wulensi donates to B.E.C.E candidates in Nanumba South District

A philanthropist and former New Patriotic Party (NPP) aspirant for the Wulensi Constituency in the Northern Region, Alhaji Haruna Abdulai, has supported candidates of the 2022 Basic Education Certificate Examinations (B.E.C.E) in the Nanumba South District to help them write the examination with ease.

The donation made up of Mathematical Sets, Pencils, Pens, Rulers, and erasers, among others, was presented to the students last Saturday.

Speaking at a short ceremony to present the items to the 1, 405 beneficiaries, Alhaji Abdulai who is also a former Northern Regional Financial Secretary of NPP and Lead Consultant for the Ghana Integrated Iron and Steel Development Corporation (GIISDEC), encouraged the students to study hard to pass the exams well to make themselves, their families and the entire municipality proud.

He also urged parents to be interested in their ward’s education to enable them to become responsible future leaders of the nation.

Alhaji Abdulai told the gathering that the donation was to cushion the burden of parents, and also help the students in writing the examination with limited or no challenges.

“When you are going in for your exam, just make sure you get yourself ready and report to the exam Centre early, don’t be late to the exam hall,” he told the students.

The Nanumba South District Chief Executive, Mr Issifu Zakaria, in his remarks said the NPP government was committed to the development of education in the area and assured the students and people of the area that more classrooms and learning materials would be provided to help improve performance and attendance.

The Nanumba South District Education Director Alhassan Issahaku received the items on behalf of the directorate and thanked Alhaji Abdulai for the gesture.

He also said the items would be distributed to the beneficiaries as planned to help them write the B. E. C. E examination well.

The director also appealed to the students to eschew exam malpractice and rather, study hard so that they could pass the exams to enable them to continue their education to the Senior High level.

Alhaji Haruna Abdulai is currently the Financial Controller and Director of Genser Energy, a Power and Midstream Gas Company and the Lead Consultant in the development of the Master Plan of the GIISDEC.
