The Deputy Constituency Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Sagnarigu Constituency, Farouk Abdul-Latif has donated learning materials to selected brilliant, but needy pupils in the area.
This event took place today, June 10, 2021 at Bukpomo Primary School following a careful selection by the headmaster of the beneficiaries that in deed merited the support.
“I donated study materials to brilliant but needy Pupils in Bukpomo Primary School through the Headmaster. This is to assist them to enhance their learning process and also encourage them to learn new concepts that significantly enhance their knowledge . It’s my hope and prayer that,they will grow to become great future leaders”, Mr. Latif said in an exclusive interview with ghdominancenews.com
“In my own little way, this is one of the many ways I give back to the society”, the NDC Deputy Secretary added.
Expressing their gratitude, the beneficiaries of this gesture said the support came at a time they actually needed it, assuring Mr. Latif that they shall put it good use.
“We want to thank Mr. Latif for this support. And we want to tell him that we will use the books very well. Thank you”, Ayisha Mohammed, spoke on behalf of her colleague students.
The headmaster of Bukpomo Primary School, Mr. Ibrahim Abdallah could not hide his joy, and used the opportunity to call on individuals and organisations to take their cue from the NDC constituency executive, adding that such gestures will go a long way to impact positively on teaching and learning in the area.
“We are much grateful to Mr. Latif for this support. It is something that will lift a great burden on parents and impact positively on academic performance of the students”, the headmaster said.
“I will like to call on others to take it upon themselves to be doing this. Without which many brilliant students will drop out of school. Because the parents don’t have the money to support them”, he added.
Each beneficiary took ten exercise books, 1 mathematical set, 2 pens and pencils, and a nose musk. And they were about 70 pupils in number.
Some of the party’s branch and ward executives were there to witness the event.
