He said that the presented materials were what students needed to stay in school.
In fact, the education system in Ghana lacks this kind of program.As a result, when schools resume, students aren’t ready to return, but when they learn that a program like this is coming, students are willing to return.
Because more students will attend school as a result of our project, enrollment will rise as well.Mr. Baba Iddrisu Neidow stated, “Their parents cannot force them, but because of these materials, they will be sufficiently motivated to stay in school.”
“It will also increase the Muslims population in the educational sector because many of our people are not into school and the English and Arabic schools have been abandoned by all if I may say so,” Mr. Baba Iddrisu Neidow insisted. He added that the program will further increase the number of Muslims attending school.
