The Majority Chief Whip and Member of Parliament for Nsawam/Adoagyiri in the Eastern Region, Frank Annoh-Dompreh, has commissioned 10 Information Computer Technology (ICT) centres for 10 Basic Schools in his constituency.
The beneficiary schools are Osae Djan, Adoagyiri Presby, Zongo, Nsawam Prisons, Nsawam M.A, Nsawam LA, Nsawam SDA, Nsawam Presby, Nsawam Methodist, and Nsawam Secondary Schools.
Each of the centres is equipped with 20 modern computers with accessories and gadgets. This forms part of the MP’s efforts to complement the government’s plans towards ICT expansion at basic schools nationwide.
The MP explained that the study of computer and information technology is relevant to modern courses, expressing the hope that the project would help change the educational direction of the municipality, and also improve the performance of students.
The Nsawam/ Adoagyiri MP said he had collaborated with mobile telecommunications networks, MTN and Airtel/Tigo, to provide data for the beneficiary schools to enhance teaching and learning in the area.
He said he would also commission another 10 centres with well-equipped internet connections by next year.
Mr Annoh-Dompreh noted that an ICT committee would soon be set up to have oversight responsibility for all ICT centres in his constituency to ensure that they are put to good use.
He further urged the students to patronize the centres to stay abreast of global issues and contribute meaningfully to national issues.
The heads of the beneficiary schools expressed gratitude to the MP for his commitment to prioritizing education in the constituency, and promised to put the facilities to good use.
