LaDMA inaugurates library for La schools

The La Dade-Kotopon Mu­nicipal Assembly (LaDMA) on Wednesday inaugurated a library for the Tenashie A and B Junior High School in La, Accra.

Anticipated to support edu­cation and literacy in La and its environs, the facility is equipped with modern books, television, chairs, tables and others.

The library was commissioned in partnership with the Potters House Ministries, a religious group.

The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of LaDMA, Solomon Kotey Nikoi, said education was an essential human virtue, a neces­sity of society and a pre-requisite for good life for which reason the library was vital.

He also said achieving an educational system capable of producing quality human resourc­es demanded a lot of sacrifice, dedication, commitment and hard work on the part of par­ents, teachers, pupils, as well as non-governmental organisations.

Mr Nikoi advised the pupils to take advantage of the opportunity provided and eschew laziness and substance use and rather concen­trate on their studies to achieve their goals.

The MCE used the opportunity to thank the Potters House Min­istry for the gesture of building the library for the school in the municipality.

The Education Director for LaDMA, Ms Habiba Kotomah, expressed her outfit’s gratitude to the spon­sors for such a laudable facility that sought to enhance the literacy skills and learning abilities of pupils in the school.

Ms Kotomah pleaded for more sponsorship from individuals and corporate bodies to aid the assembly provide more schools with facilities such as Information and Communication Technology labs, Science labs and conference rooms among others.

The Education Director hinted that the assembly had developed a strategic medium to long term plan to make all pre-tertiary education in LaDMA a preferred choice for all parents in the mu­nicipality.

Rev. Samuel Clarence Richter, Head Pastor, Potters House Min­istry, stated that consensus on the construction of the facility was reached through a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in 2021 between his outfit and the Accra Municipal Assembly (AMA).

He said that certain unforeseen challenges delayed the commis­sioning of the facility but was happy LaDMA made everything possi­ble for the opening of the facility.

According to the Head Pastor in the MoU, his ministry will use the facility for their religious services after school hours.

He also advised the youth to stick to their books and study hard rather than staying longer periods on their phones playing games, listening to music and watching films.
