President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has endorsed the Western North Regional Minister, Richard Ebbah Obeng’s ‘1 school child, 1 study desk’ initiative to provide desks to schools that are in dire need in the region. The region has a desk deficit of over six thousand six hundred (6,600).

A situation that has been impacting negatively on teaching and learning, thus affecting the performance of students in the region.

In a one-on-one interview on a Sefwi Wiawso-based radio station, the President Akufo-Addo applauded the initiative and endorsed it.

President Akufo-Addo noted that the initiative is an excellent one and the good people of the Western North region should be proud of having a visionary leader like Hon. Richard E. Obeng.

He emphasized that the initiative will soon become a national initiative.

Earlier this year, the Western North Regional Minister launched the ‘1-School Child 1-Study Desk’ initiative, with the collaborative efforts of all Municipal and District Chief Executives (MDCEs) in the region.

The initiative, which is targeted at eradicating the close to seventy thousand (70,000) desk deficit across the region, has already commenced, with some schools receiving their desks.

The initiative has thus brought on board the likes of Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC), Coastal Development Authority (CODA), various chiefs across the region, some Members of Parliament, all Municipal and District Assemblies, philanthropists, and other well-meaning individuals, who continue to donate resources for the realization of the goals of the initiative.

The Regional Minister, Hon. Richard E. Obeng through the Western North Regional Co-ordinating Council has, therefore, set up a special desk to encourage and receive support from volunteers and partners who share in the vision of eradicating the desk deficits across the region.
