In a Facebook post, Mr. Ablakwa said he expects pupils to return from the Independence celebrations to meet a more comfortable learning environment.
“Took advantage of the independence holiday to replace all old and weak furniture as I also provided extra furniture to cater for five of the fastest growing basic schools in Battor - the capital of my beloved constituency,” he wrote, accompanied by photos of the furniture he donated.
“I expect my dear pupils to return to a more comfortable learning environment after today’s 6th March parade.”
He further promised to extend his furniture replacement and supply programme to other parts of the North Tongu constituency.
“My furniture replacement and supply programme will continue to other parts of North Tongu.
“Together and by our little contributions; we can all make our communities and our nation that exemplary Republic our forebears envisaged,” he added.
Ghana’s 63rd Independence parade was held at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi in the Ashanti region.
The theme for the ceremony was “Consolidating Our Gains.”

The suspect is alleged to be a former aspiring youth organizer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the North East Region. He promised to secure the victims auction vehicles.
