THE REBECCA FOUNDATION CONSTRUCTS LIBRARIES FOR FOUR COMMUNITIES

The Rebecca Foundation has handed over two libraries to the people of Daffiama Bussei Issah District in the Upper West Region and Wenchi in the Bono Region.

The Libraries are part of four libraries constructed by the Rebecca Foundation in parts of the country to inculcate the habit of reading in school children as a means of improving on their learning skills.

In a statement read on her behalf, Executive Director of The Rebecca Foundation and First Lady of the Republic of Ghana, H.E. Mrs Rebecca Naa Okaikor Akufo-Addo acknowledged the contribution of the current NPP administration in prioritising education with various policies such as free SHS and reinstituting allowances for teacher trainees to improve upon the ability of our young Ghanaians to effectively propel national development.

She however, bemoaned the ability of many children to read and write as a result of factors including limited access to reading materials, which she said adversely affects the child’s ability to learn stating, “Literacy is the means by which lifelong learning and a child’s ability to learn to the highest levels is made possible”.

The First Lady thanked development partners of The Rebecca Foundation including the Ministry of Education, Ghana Library Authority, Book Aid International, the District and the Municipal Assemblies, where the libraries are sited for their support in executing the four projects.

She also announced the completion of two more libraries in other parts of the country to be commissioned soon.

Chief Executive of Ghana Library Authority, Mr Hayford Siaw, expressed gratitude to H.E. the First Lady in helping the agency meet one critical objective in its ‘2020 Year of Learning’ which is to increase the network of libraries in the country, stating that since 2017, government through GhLA has increased library network from sixty-one to seventy-four and now seventy-eight with the new libraries by the Rebecca Foundation

Present to grace the commissioning were MCEs, Officials of GES, Ghana Library Authority and Chiefs.
It will be recalled that in 2018, the Rebecca Foundation launched the “Learning to Read and Reading to Learn” initiative to help improve literacy levels among Ghanaian children. The initiative involves a reading television show for children shown nationwide on GTV Saturdays at 12pm and repeated on Wednesdays at 5pm, the Ghana Learning TV, Net2, and GN Junior TV, as well as construction of libraries in school clusters that lack access to library facilities.

John Mahama to name Mr. Daniel Yaw Domelevo as his Running Mate for 2020 Elections

John Dramani Mahama, the ex-president, ex-vice- president and 2020 presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress(NDC) is set to name Mr. Daniel Yaw Domelevo as his running mate for the 2020 general election. Mr. Daniel Yaw Domelevo is the Auditor General who is currently enjoying his accumulated leave in accordance with the law.

The Volta Caucus in NDC has mounted a spirited defense and pressure on John Mahama to consider Mr. Daniel Yaw Domelevo as his running mate in order to satisfy the grassroots of the Party in Volta Region, the largest stronghold of the National Democratic Congress(NDC). This is a last minute agenda by the Volta Caucus of NDC to John Mahama.

Initially, kingpins of the Volta Caucus were behind Hon. Edward Doe Adjaho, but he has been substituted for the Auditor General, Daniel Yaw Domelevo.

According to the argument of the Volta Caucus, the floating voters and Think Tanks have developed love for Daniel Yaw Domelevo over his strong political resistance and biases against the NPP Administration. They argued further that, the “neutrals” would have some level of trust and confidence in the Mahama-Domelovo ticket.

Again, the Ewes have become Orphans in the current NDC leadership set up and the coming on board of Daniel Yaw Domelevo would help to cool down tempers in the Volta Region.

However, the Church Street bloc in NDC are pushing for Prof. Naana Opoku Agyeman, the woman who boldly canceled the allowances for Teacher and Nursing trainees.

The Rawlings faction are solidly behind Dr. Kwabena Duffour.

Lordina Mahama bloc are pushing for Eric Opoku or Awuah Darko.

The leadership of CVM wishes NDC well in the choice of their running mate in the coming days.

Certainly, no matter what, John Mahama and NDC SHALL Lose the 2020 general elections more miserable than 2016.

…..Signed….
Razak Kojo Opoku
(CVM Founder and President)
