The Member of Parliament (MP) for Weija-Gbawe Constituency in the Greater Accra Region,   Madam Tina Naa Ayeley Mensah has encouraged pupils in her constituency to see learning as a pleasant experience.

She took the opportunity when she visited the school to donate some books and stationery item to them.
During the visit, to Oblogo M/A 2& 3 Public Schools in her constituency, the MP stated that, children are to be encouraged to see learning as the only means to acquire knowledge, skills and attitude which are essential components of every human. “Learning should not be seen as punishment” she remarked.

She questioned why children these days do not like to learn.  Gone are the days when learning was seen as enjoyable experience and every child loved to read a book. Parents in those times love to see children read a story, she recounted.

“Education in this constituency is dear to my heart and would do everything possible to see education thrive under my watch as Member of Parliament for the constituency” she stated explicitly.

She sat among them and demonstrated with pupils how to read some simple sentences from their textbooks. The children were happy to see their MP sit side by side them to learn.
