Pupils from Bekwai Constituency visit Parliament

Benjamin Mensah, GNA

Accra, July 22, GNA –
Mr Joseph Osei-Owusu, the First Deputy Speaker of Parliament and Member of
Parliament for Bekwai, on Friday welcomed school children from the Constituency
to the House and advised them to take their studies seriously.

After adjournment of
proceedings, the First Deputy Speaker took some time off his busy schedule to
interact with the pupils from Sumkyerekrom and Amanhyia M/A Primary School, and
Ntinanko M/A Primary and Junior High School, accompanied by some of their teachers.

The school children
and teachers, led by Mr Stephen Akomaning of Sumkyerekrom M/A Primary School,
sat in the public gallery and observed parts of the proceedings for the day.

Mr Osei-Owusu
commended the children and their teachers for the visit.

He urged the teachers
to give of their best and the pupils to continue to study hard and build good
characters to become learned and responsible adults in future.

He encouraged the
pupils to engage all their sensory organs including the hands, ears and eyes
when learning as that would help them retain what they had learned.

Mr Osei-Owusu said
once a member was elected into the House, both the Majority and Minority worked
together in the interest of the nation, though they may sometimes disagree on
certain issues.

“What is needed is to
reach a consensus through a majority decision in the House so that no side of
the House would take unilateral and arbitrary decisions,” he said.

Mr Osei-Owusu asked
the children what they observed in the House and commended them and their
teachers for the brilliant answers and wished them a safe journey back home.

He assured them that
he would visit them in the Constituency when the House is on vacation.

Mr Akomaning, on his
part, thanked First Deputy Speaker for his time and wished him the best in his
duties in the House.

The school children
had earlier visited the Tema Harbour and the Accra International Airport.
