The District Chief Executive, Francis Oti Boateng, presenting the uniforms to students from one of the beneficiary schools, Efirisere D/A Primary School disclosed that the presentation of the free school uniforms was in fulfillment of President Nana Addo's commitment to fulfill the Ghana Beyond Aid Policy.
The gesture, he noted, also forms part of efforts at enhancing quality basic education in the area to lay strong foundation for the pupils to propel them in their academic pursue.
According to the Asante Akim North DCE, government is poised to deliver qualitative education, and reaffirmed the NPP government’s commitment to commit more resources to the educational sector.
He said since NPP won power, it has made several interventions in the area of providing adequate classrooms and furniture to improve the schools in the country.

“We are privileged to hand over a total of Eight Hundred and fifty (850) free school uniforms to basic schools in this district,” the DCE said.
