Below is the full statement on 25 best WASSCE students awarded full scholarship
As heads of second cycle institutions begin the 2020 WASSCE Analysis, I have conveyed my decision to the North Tongu District Education Director, Mr Godwin Amelor to the effect that I am increasing the number of beneficiaries on the MP’s Scholarship Scheme.
This year, five best performing WASSCE candidates (two males and three females) from each of our five senior high schools (a total of 25 students) will receive a full scholarship for the entire duration of their tertiary education.
This package is in addition to our intervention which ensures all orphaned and vulnerable WASSCE candidates automatically qualify for full tertiary scholarships consistent with our tradition since I became MP for my beloved North Tongu. Currently, some 200 beneficiaries fall under this category.
I make no claims of being an AGYAPA, however, I sincerely hope that these modest initiatives would positively touch lives and eventually make our community a far better place than I met it. God bless..
