The Municipal chief executive of Sissala East municipality Hon. Karim Nanyua has expressed dissatisfaction about retrogression in 2018 BECE performance in Sissala East which he says is worse especially in the Banu traditional area.
The MCE said this during this year’s Fakuri festivals in the Kassena traditional area where he expressed that some of the schools scored 0% when they registered number of students to sit for the examination in 2018.
In an aggregate of 6 to 30, several communities in the traditional area including Banu scored zero; Kassana zero, Kungchogu zero and Pina zero while Basisan scored 75% and Wuru 38%, a situation the MCE bemoaned as worrying.
He said “despite the investment in education by central government and the municipal assembly BECE performance have not improved in the municipality apart from 2017 where there was a little improvement.
The municipal Chief executive has therefore stated that education is key to national development and we need to promote quality education for the youth for acquisition of relevant knowledge and skills fertilization and the transformational agenda of Ghana beyond aid.
Hon. Karim Nanyua indicated with this abysmal performance, concerted efforts from stakeholders is essential to solving the situation.
