He advised stakeholders within the educational sector to build effective collaboration with the Authority to enable the Authority deliver on its effort in supporting education in its impacted communities.

Mr. Fletcher urged the pupils to study hard in order to become good citizens not only for their communities but the nation at large.

"Education is the only guarantee to a better future and so therefore I implore all of you to learn hard in order to secure your future," he said.

The District Chief Executive (DCE) of the North Tongu District Assembly, Madam Delphia Fafa Agbai who received the items on behalf of her district, was grateful to the Authority for the donation.
She promised her outfit would do everything possible to ensure that the books are used for their intended purpose.
