Bryan Acheampong’s gesture is a classical example of a true exhibition of love for the teaching profession.
Member of Parliament (MP) for the Abetifi Constituency and Minister of State at the Office of the President, Hon. Bryan Acheampong, on Friday, 14th December, 2018, treated Teachers and Educational Workers in the Kwahu East District of the Eastern Region, to a party of food and drinks.
The programme which took place in Kwahu Pepease, the district capital, gave the MP the opportunity to make certain revelations concerning plans in stock for the teachers in the district.
Speaking to the gathering, Mr. Acheampong, whose mother was also a teacher, announced a 300-Ghana cedi (GHC 300) package of free shopping for each teacher at Melcom. He also awarded 27 teachers each with a cash prize of GHC 2,000 plus either a fridge or a flat-screen television.
In what seemed like a joke, but a very serious matter, the MP announced another surprise: a scholarship package for all teachers who have worked at the district for ten years and over, to study at the Presbyterian University College located at Abetifi in his constituency.
What other love could be exhibited towards a profession that has so much been downtrodden for ages? Teachers and Educational Workers in this district are full of blessings and thanksgiving to the man whose very ambition to become a law maker started at the Suhum Constituency in the same region, but failed in a number of attempts struggling with Hon. Frederick Opare Ansah.
Today, the evidence is that if this man had continued to be denied a seat in Ghana’s parliament, these good deeds would have been buried for ever.
