Mr. William Kpormatsi, a candidate for the NDC’s Akatsi South seat in the parliamentary primary, has reaffirmed his commitment to advancing high-quality education in order to advance progress and development.

In advance of the National Democratic Congress’s (NDC) May 13 parliamentary and presidential elections, Mr. Kpormatsi revealed his plans for the area. He stated that in order for any community to develop, there should be a deliberate action to ensure quality education for its citizens, and that there is no negotiating for that.

Given your directive, William Kpormatsi will form a “Education Committee,” which will be entrusted with determining the causes of the municipality’s declining educational standards and proposing solutions. William Kpormatsi will also conduct a vigorous educational infrastructure programme to get rid of schools in the Akatsi South Municipality that are located in run-down buildings and behind trees.

In order to keep girls in school all month, he pledged to make it easier to get and distribute sanitary products. He also committed to supplying schools with desktop computers to support ICT education.

In outlining a number of policies and programmes for the educational sector, Mr. Kpormatsi pledged, among other important policies, to work with the education directorate to make it easier for teachers to be posted and distributed properly throughout the Municipality, ending the multi-grade system there.

Others include advocating for the completion of unfinished projects at the Akatsi Senior High Technical School, working with the Municipal Assembly, the Education Committee, and the Education Directorate to establish an annual quiz and debate competition for schools in the Municipality to improve educational standards, performance, and competition among schools, and an annual award programme for educators within the Municipality to encourage them to work harder.

The remaining items on the list include paying the tuition for at least 15 tertiary students from 15 electoral areas each year, setting up a fund to help deserving but poor students, providing assistance to the Education Directorate in organising annual sporting and cultural events, and continuing to support BECE candidates as he has in the past.

If properly carried out, he thought that these and other reforms would raise educational standards and performance in the Municipality.

After two unsuccessful efforts to run for Parliament on the NDC ticket, businessman Mr. Kpormatsi is listed third on the ballot and is making a third appearance.
