Students of Kwahu Nsabah M/A Basic School, in the Kwahu West Municipality of the Eastern Region, have expressed their appreciation to the Editor of the Daily Statesman Newspaper, Kwabena Amankwah, for his support to the school.
The students say the timely intervention from the Daily Statesman Editor, especially during the preparation for the 2020 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE), gave them the ‘moral support’ in easing the pressure on them during the exams.
“Again, the brief advice you gave us concerning how you were brought up and where you are today also gingered some of us that through hardworking, discipline and determination, we can also be prominent persons in future.
“We therefore assure you that your effort and resources you spent on us will never be in vain,” the students said in statement signed by one Elvis D Amoakwa.
The Daily Statesman Editor, before the 2020 BECE, provided some stationery, including mathematical sets and pens, to some schools in the Kwahu West Municipality.
He also supported the Kwahu Nsaba MA School in putting up a urinal facility.
“The urinal you supported the school to put up aided not only Nsabah students but also the other candidates who came to write their exams in our school,” the students stated.
To the students, the decision by Mr Amankwah to go back to his root to support them, by attending to their needs, has been a source of motivation to them.
“This man needs to be appreciated for the show of affection and the decision to attend to the needs of us, the less privileged. I believe such an enviable character of his needs to be emulated by all, especially those who have the resources to do so.
“We thank you once again and hope that you will come and assist the school to do more things, especially the provision of sporting equipment, which is lacking in the school,” the students said.
