The President assured that his government’s focus is to provide every school and community with ICT infrastructure to keep them in touch with global trends.
This will also equip our youth with the skills that will be necessary for Ghana’s economic transformation, he added.
President Akufo-Addo made these remarks on Wednesday, April 26, 2017, when he commissioned his first project, the Akyem Wenchi Educational Circuit Community Information Centre, at Soabe, in the Eastern Region.
In his brief remarks to the gathering, the President noted that his government, as is stated in the NPP’s manifesto of 2016, intends to improve the facilities and the curriculum for ICT education at all levels.
Government also intends to ensure that all teachers have ICT competence, he noted.
“I am delighted, therefore, to commission this project, because it is the first to put into expression the NPP’s commitment on ICT and Education,” President Akufo-Addo said.
“I am certain that this community information centre will have a positive impact on learning in the Akyem Wenchi Educational Circuit, and will increase flexibility so that students can access education, regardless of time and geographical barriers.”
