Member of Parliament for Adenta, Ashie Moore has donated several pieces of math sets and exercise books to about 2,365 Junior High Students in his constituency who are candidates for this year’s Basic Education Certificate Examinations (BECE).

According to him, his gesture is to equip and also assure the students who are writing the first major exams of their lives of his support.

Hon. Ashie Moore urged the students to shun any examination malpractices that may eventually affect their results as that act may lead to the cancellation of their results.

He counseled them to take the exams seriously as their advancement to the next level of education will be dependent on their performance in this examination.

The students who were excited by the MP’s generosity towards them assured that they will give their best to ensure that they come out with flying colours.
