The Assemblyman for Kantankofori Electoral Area in the Krachi West District of the Oti Region, Francis Odenke Kwasi Ntem has encouraged candidates writing the 2019 Basic Education Certificate Examinations (BECE) from June 10 to 14, to remain confident and approach the examination with determination to enable them come out successful.
Speaking to pupils at Bunda D/A JHS and KRASEC JHS respectively, Mr. Ntem noted that BECE results in the past years have not been good and therefore he needed to support the candidates with some basic needs to improve on results in the district.
He assured that this year’s best candidate would be awarded to encourage others to learn for improved performance.
The Assembly member made this known when he distributed over 300 mathematical sets and pens to some selected schools in the district.
Official from the district education directorate in charge of basic schools, Rebecca Kumah asked candidates to concentrate on what they had been taught by their teachers and not to listen to anyone who would approach them with fake examination “apor” questions.
Madam Kumah encouraged teachers to give their best for the candidates to enable them come out with flying colours.
The assistant headmistress of KRASEC D/A JHS, Millicent Dogo thanked the Assembly member for the gesture and prayed that the 2019 BECE results would be one of the best.
Madam Dogo seized the opportunity and appealed to government and other stakeholders to provide the school with adequate infrastructure to improve academic excellence.
Meanwhile, some candidates who spoke in an interview, thanked the Assemblyman and promised him good results.
They also pleaded with him and the appropriate authorities to support their schools with infrastructure including library, computer science laboratory to enhance BECE results in the district.
