The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Hon. Solomon Tettey Appiah in handing over the furniture to the Education Directorate appealed to Directors, head teachers and school children to protect the furniture to them last longer. This, according to the MCE, would enable the Assembly to do other things for the education sector. The MCE also added that although the furniture is insufficient the Assembly is willing to provide more to meet the support needed by the directorate.
