He advised parents to ensure that they invest in their children’s education since that is the only way to empower them for a better future.

According to him, most developed countries such as Malaysia, Singapore, and South Korea, have come this far, in terms of development, due to their committed efforts in investing in the education sector.

The Member of Parliament for Agona West Constituency, Cynthia Mamle Morrison thanked the President for the good initiative in establishing the Development Authorities.
