The Municipal Director of Education for Nkwanta South in the Volta Region, Stephen Kwame Tsuatorfe has entreated parents to support government policies for development.
According to him, development will only come when citizens support government initiatives and policies through communal labour.
He was speaking during the commissioning of a classroom block for the Deeper of Jonah Basic School at Bonakye in the Municipality.
He also appealed to parents to provide the basic needs for their wards in school to augment quality education delivery in the country.
The Nkwanta South Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), John Thasun called on parents to take proper care of government properties and also support their children in their academic journey.
He also urged them to support the implementation of government’s free senior high school program.
