Thirty adult learners have graduated from the Complementary Education Agency (CEA) of the Abuakwa North Municipal Assembly after completing their educational program.
The ceremony was graced by the Municipal Chief Executive, Hon. Alhaji Umar Babs Bodinga, Assistant Regional Director for Complementary Education Agency, Ken Atsu Prosper and the Director for the Complementary Education Agency, Mr. Henry Joseph Provencal.
About hundred (100) learners from all the three zonal councils namely, Osiem, New Tafo and Kukurantumi enrolled for the 2021 batch out of which thirty (30) completed successfully.
Addressing the learners, Hon. Alhaji Umar Babs Bodinga congratulated the learners for fighting a good fight amidst the challenges they encountered during the two years course. He noted to the people that it is good that the learners have taken advantage of the program and urged them to advice their friends and family to also participate.
He also advised the leaners that their income can be more or equal to a government worker’s monthly salary, if managed appropriately.
The Municipal Coordinator for the Complementary Education Agency, Mr. Henry Provencal highlighted on the main objective of the Agency. He noted that the complementary Education Agency, previously known as Non – Formal Education, seeks to help adult learners acquire knowledge and occupational skills to improve their lives, their communities and the country at large.
Mr. Henry Provencal further noted that, the agency aims at letting leaners acquire some basic literacy, numeracy and entrepreneurial skills, thus the ability to speak, read and write and also to equip learners with the basic skills to manage their own businesses and finances.
He emphasized that, lack of infrastructure is seriously affecting the performance of Complementary Education in the Municipality because academic activities organized by the Agency were held in public schools.
The Chairman, Mr. Ken Atsu Prosper commended the Municipality for being assiduous and active among the 33 MDAs in the Eastern Region who are implementing the flagship programme.
Speaking with the graduates, they expressed their appreciation to the Government and the Assembly for giving them the opportunity which has empowered them with literacy and occupational skills through this flagship programme.
