Some executives of the National Democratic Congress’ youth and women wing on Tuesday 17th September, 2019 provided stranded parents and students with assorted drinks and water at the Black Stars Square.
The NDC went to the Black Stars Square in Accra to give water and assorted drinks to parents and students who have journeyed from their homes to the grounds.
The bottles water and assorted drinks were funded by the Youth and Women’s wing of the major opposition party.
The move was led by George Opare Addo.
In a Facebook post, George wrote; I was at the Black Star Square earlier today visiting the makeshift Senior High School Placement to see first hand how the exercise was faring.
The Youth and Women Wing of the National Democratic Congress also used the ocassion to refresh parents and their wards who had been left stranded due to the mismanagement and haphazard nature of this year’s school placements.
I represented the Youth Wing while my colleague, Akwambea Elorm Yaa Mensah, Deputy National Women’s Organizer, stood in for the Women’s Wing
Parents and children should not go through such pain and struggle just to access education. Government must sit up, acknowledge it’s shortcomings and work to ensure this issue is resolved. We cannot afford to play ‘small poles’ with the education of our young people.
