Both public and private schools in the Ayawaso Wuogon Constituency in Greater Accra cannot deny the impact of the late MP Emmanuel Agyako on education and school activities in the constituency.
School children will forever remember his continued presence at programs organized by both public and private schools within the constituency.
Hon. Emmanuel Agyako was one fine dad and MP who continued to support schools within his constituency in diverse ways. His continuous support towards BECE candidates was second to none.
He continued to ensure that, pupils in his constituency were empowered and resourced enough to write the BECE each year. His messages of best wishes always came ahead of the exams along with need stationery for each school and pupils throughout the examination. He always visited pupils in their respective exams centres to encourage them. On other occasions, he sent delegations.
This assistance on several occasions was extended to schools which wrote the exams in the constituency but were from neighbouring constituencies.
West Ayawaso Wuogon Independence Replica Parades
His unflinching support to Ghana’s Independence Replica Parade which became an annual flagship event under his direction continued to expand in terms of participating schools. The event is organized a day or two before 6th March national and regional events each year to give school children in the constituency the chance to experience the 6th March in their constituency especially because they may not get the chance to celebrate the independence of Ghana at the national event in Accra.
Since he took the event up and supported the teachers and school authorities who initiated the program some 10 years ago, every new year brought to the children and schools a lot of excitement when this event is announced.
The last event organized and held on the lA-Bawaleshie school field, it was won by the Accra College of Education Demonstration School while the La Bawaleshie Presbyterian School Cadet took the first position in the cadet contingent category.
For the past 6 years, he demonstrated that he had the schools and pupils at heart. Honourable Emmanuel Agyako was present at all events except the 2018 edition.
Flash Back on Honourable Agyako’s Advise to school children
During the 2017 edition, we recount his advice to the children who marched and celebrated Ghana’s 60th anniversary at the Labawaleshie school field. At the event, He advised the pupils to take their studies seriously and concentrate on it and that, the plans and programs aimed at developing the nation were not for people like him but for the children who will become leaders of tomorrows Ghana.
Sadly Honourable Emmanuel Agyako will not be at the next even however. The schools are looking forward to Honourable Lydia Alhassan the newly elected MP to step into the shoes of the late MP and her husband to continue to support this all-important program on the schools’ calendar in the constituency.
The schools according to information gathered have commenced training ahead of the letter that will confirm the event for the year. If things go well as expected by the committee in charge of the event, the 2019 event will be historic because it will ignite the healthy competition that took place in 2018 between the public and private schools. This year, every school will put in extra effort to win the bragging
The organizing committee made up of dedicated teachers from the schools in the constituency are looking forward to a record number of 2000 pupils drawn from private and public basic schools, association of artisans and traders within the constituency to grace the 2019 occasion to celebrate the Late Honourable Emmanuel Agyako and welcome the new MP for the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency.
