One of the notable forms of support that is usually provided to candidates is the donation of mathematical sets, pens and pencils.
Mr. Eric Edem Agbana, the NDC Parliamentary candidate of Ketu North Constituency whose vision drives change narratives in Ketu North’s developmental sectors including the enviable Education Sector, has also announced the donation of 2,145 mathematical sets to BECE candidates in his beloved Ketu North Municipality.
Mr. Agbana speaking to Mr. Japhet Festus Gbede, DFS LIVE NEWS Volta Regional Coordinator on Monday, indicated that, it is worthy to note that the donation is not just a show of philanthropy, but will also go a long way in boosting the confidence of his candidates.
When candidates have access to the necessary tools, they tend to feel more prepared and confident in their ability to excel in the examination.
He wrote on his Facebook page “Ahead of the Basic Education Certificate Examination slated from 7th August to 11th August 2023, all 2145 BECE candidates, from the 86 Public and Private Junior High Schools within my beloved Ketu North Constituency, will receive a Mathematical Set from us.
Sadly, during their last mock examination organized by the schools, some teachers brought to my attention the lack of mathematical sets by some of the students, part of his statement reads.
In response to this request, my Constituency Executives and I, will visit all the schools to encourage the candidates, and make a presentation to all the students ahead of their examination and wish them well”.
The NDC Parliamentary candidate aspirant of Ketu North has expressed satisfaction with the working relationship he has built with the Ketu North Education Office.
He encouraged them to keep knocking at his door and assured them of his readiness to join hands with them to improve education in the district.
