The Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFund) has presented some 365 Isuzu pickups and 493 motorbikes to the Ghana Education Service (GES) and agencies under the Ministry of Education.
According to a release by the Public Relations Unit of the GES Headquarters, the presentation was done by the Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia today [March 12, 2020].
Making the presentation, the Vice president said this is a demonstration of “government’s commitment to ensuring that logistics are available to Institutions for their efficiency and effective administration.”
“It’s the expectation of government that these vehicles will go a long way to promote quality supervision in our schools to inure improved learning outcomes,” the Vice president added.
The release said all 260 District Education offices have been allocated a pickup each and a number of motorbikes for circuit supervision.
The release hinted the vehicles have arrived timely, especially for the newly created districts as Education Directors in these districts had often complained about the “absence of vehicles and motorbikes for operational purposes.”
Expressing appreciation for the gesture, the Director-General of the Ghana Education Service, Professor Kwasi Opoku Amankwa, “promised on behalf of his Directors to put the vehicles to good use to be able to realize the desired outcomes out of the usage of the logistics.”
