The Minister of Education, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh, on Wednesday, 21 October 2020, handed over 16 Toyota Land Cruiser Prados to all Regional Directors of Education on behalf of President Akufo-Addo at a short ceremony at the Ministry of Education in Accra.
The ministry has also provided over 2,000 motorbikes to circuit supervisors to aid their frontline roles.
The presentation was in furtherance to the government’s commitment to provide the requisite tools and logistics to those at the forefront of the reforms the government is pursuing in the education sector, with a view to improving learning outcomes in the country.
Dr Opoku Prempeh expressed his confidence that the vehicles will be properly taken care of and put to good use to ensure maximum efficiency and ultimately to support the government’s vision for the education sector.
In March 2020, the Vice-President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, on behalf of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, presented Isuzu double-cabin pickup trucks to all the Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Education Offices to support their management and supervision roles.
