The First Lady of Ghana, Mrs. Rebecca Akufo Addo, has donated a 66-seater bus to school children in the New Ningo community.
The donation is in line with the First Lady’s promise made to the school when she was enstooled a development queen in the area in November.
She was given the stool name Naana Djangmakuor I by the chiefs and people of New Ningo.
According to Mrs. Akufo Addo, she was touched by the plight of the children due to the distance they had to travel to and from school; thereby, motivating her to make that promise.
School children in the community which is located in the Ningo-Prampram District in the Greater Accra Region, face enormous transportation challenge, stated a Daily Graphic report.
The school children have to walk about three to four miles before reaching school, especially the SHS students who have to walk all the way to Prampram to attend the only SHS there.
Thus, the First Lady’s gesture to solve the transportation problem and also to boost education in that part of Ghana.
The presentation was with the support of Svani Group Limited, the largest distributor of Russian vehicles.
The First Lady further advised the community leaders to ensure that all children of school-going age in New Ningo benefit from the bus.
She also entreated the leaders to ensure proper maintenance of the bus, despite her commitment to help in servicing it.
