–-urges them to be Discipline
The Member of Parliament(MP) for Agotime-Ziope Constituency in the Volta Region, Charles Agbeve , has admonished second cycle students from his constituency to stick to their books. He urged them to eschew truancy and laxity but strive to read their books so they could excel in their education.
The MP gave the advise when he addressed Students of Agotime Secondary School at Agotime-Ziope, when they took an excursion to Parliament House in Accra last Thursday November 22.
While interacting with the students, Mr Agbeve charged them to be shining examples worth emulating by other children in the constituency.
Using himself as a study case for the students to aspire higher, the MP said, they have privilege to certain education facilities to study for in his time there was no access to electricity but he defied all odds and today he is serving the Agotime-Ziope in capacity as their representation in parliament.
He told the students, they are the nation’s future leaders, hence they must not fail their parents, adding that each of them have the chance of succeeding him in parliament should they study hard and excel in their exams.
The MP took time to educate the students on proceedings and other duties of parliamentarians, both inside and outside the chambers.
He further advised the Students to obey their teachers and respect their parents and elders in their communities to enable them grow into responsible adults.
Hon Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwah, MP for North Tongu also took turn and advised the students to be self discipline and restrain themselves from social vices that could derail their future.
The Senior Prefect of thee school on behalf of his colleagues expressed gratitude to the MPs for the admonition and promised to stick to their books to enable them excel in life.
Some of the students who spoke to the Media said, they have come to learn a lot which would go a long way to enhance their understanding of the work of the Legislative armor government and appreciate the role of their MPs.
