Communication Minister and Member of Parliament (MP) for Ablekuma West Ursula Owusu-Ekuful on Tuesday,January 15th 2019 paid a working visit to her constituents.
Joined by the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of Ablekuma West George Cyril Bray, Mrs Owusu-Ekuful cut sod for the Shiabu Police Station Project during the 3-hour visit.
She also launched an e-learning extra classes programme for senior high school students in the constituency at the Ebenezer Senior High School and also inspected some ongoing projects in the constituency.
One of such is the 10-seater water closet toilet project in the school.
Addressing a gathering of students and stakeholders at the launch of the e-learning project, Mrs. Owusu-Ekuful expressed utmost delight to be part of the project saying it would transform the country’s educational sector.
“I’m delighted to be part of the launch of this Wolo app, an e-learning application. It combines my two passions—technology and education, and I always say that education is the key to personal transformation,” she stated.
“My favourite anecdote also is that if I hadn’t been to school, I would be selling charcoal because I have sold charcoal before. But by being educated today I am a lawyer, a member of parliament and Minister of State. It’s education, hard work that made it possible.
“If that could be possible in my life, it can be possible in yours. The important thing is to make the most out of the opportunities that you are given. One such opportunity is this Wolo, e-learning application.” She continued.
Mrs. Owusu-Ekuful further noted “it’s imperative that our students be encouraged to also utilise the few tools at their disposals to make responsible use of their time.”
