The Northern Regional Coordinating Council (NRCC) has presented six new pick-up cars and a 65-seater bus to six Senior High Schools (SHS) in the Region to facilitate administrative duties.

This, the Northern Regional Minister, Saani Shaibu said, is in line with Nana Akufo-Addo’s government educational policy of making Senior High Schools vibrant under his administration.

Alhaji Saani Shaibu, who presented the vehicles to the Regional Education Director on behalf of the President during a brief ceremony, said more buses and pick-ups are on the way for other schools in the Region.

He said, unlike other governments, the NPP government is bent on delivering its mandate hence the presentation of cars.
