Over the last eight years, I have had the honour of wishing graduating students of the Basic Education Certificate Examinations the best of luck as they write the Exams.
This year, I am more resolved to do so in view of the extraordinary circumstances in your lives due to the onset of Covid-19 which have had to push your Examinations to now. I am certain, it hasn’t been an easy experience.
On the brighter side, this may have provided an opportunity for you to prepare adequately and pass the Exams with flying colours. I am confident of that.
Education is a matter of great importance to prosperity and a society that wishes to transform itself into a modern productive player in the global market, can only do so with the education and skills set of its young people. It is why as a government and your MP, we have prioritised the Education of our young ones.
Your future as beneficiaries of the Free Senior High School and Free Technical and Vocational Education Training is assured as government remains committed to ensuring equal education opportunities for all as it continues to make significant investment into education.
I have, through the Ga East Municipal Education Directorate distributed over 4500 Math Sets to aid you in your Exams.
It is my prayer, that, Wisdom and Discernment from above be your portion as you tackle every paper with excellence. I am optimistic you will all pass with distinction.
The Nation and your Parents are counting on you.
Good Luck and God Richly Bless you all.
