The Member of Parliament for Tamale Central Constituency, Ibrahim Murtala Muhammed has donated packets of roofing sheets and some boxes of roofing nails to the United Primary School (Kulikuli School) and the Dakpema Primary School.
The donation came at the back of an appeal from authorities of the two schools to the MP to help re-roof parts of the structures that were ripped off after a rain storm some months ago.
At separate events to hand over the items to the school management, Ibrahim Murtala Muhammed promised to help the United Primary (Kulikuli School) and the Dakpema Primary schools improve teaching and learning as part of efforts to build the human capital in the constituency.
He indicated that as part of his vision is to improve the quality of education within the Tamale Central constituency, he has initiated free extra classes program for all JHS students in the constituency to prepare them adequately for their Basic Education Certificate Examinations in November.
He said the program was devoid of political coloration and urged pupils within the five centers where the free extra classes are currently ongoing to take advantage of it.
The Tamale Central MP also announced his plans to construct mechanized boreholes at some selected schools and community libraries across the 18 wards within the Tamale Central Constituency.
The Head Masters of both Schools expressed their heartfelt gratitude to the Member of Parliament for the kind gesture and his efforts to improve quality education within the constituency.
Headmistress at the United Primary School, Madam Agnes Yidana urged the MP to fast track work on the construction of the borehole since the school was burdened with water challenges especially in this era of COVID-19 where pupils are required to wish their hands regularly.
