Last Friday, despite my very busy schedules, coupled with my dad’s health that we have been battling with for Months, I squeezed out time, for the passion I have for my people and for rural education, to grace the first ever speech and prize giving day of the Government Primary school, Amnat, where I finished my Primary education barely two two decades ago.
As one of the guest speakers, I used the opportunity to encourage the young ones to remain highly focused and determined in pursuing their dreams and for any reason, not to allowed their background deter them from pushing to become the best in the future. I further encouraged Parents to as a matter of fact, do everything humanly possible, to ensure they provide their wards with everything they need to succeed educationally.
To say the least, I was marveled by the intellectual performances of some of the brightest pupils despite the dilapidated nature of public schools, particularly Primary schools.
I charged the Graduating Pupils to be good and proud Ambassadors of Amnat to ensure that the community is promoted and placed on a high pedestal.
As part of my contribution to rural education and in giving back to my alma mater and my people, I gave full scholarship to the best Graduating pupil for his first year in any secondary school the pupil chooses and part payment of the tuition fee of all the Graduating pupils in their first year in secondary School.
As Young people, we must make deliberate efforts in contributing our own quota for the advancement of Education to attain one of the most important goals of the SDGs.
Note: I went through a lot to get to Amnat because of the nature of the road especially now that it is raining season! Come and tar the road for us and you will have our votes in the bag
