Member of Parliament for Salaga North, Alhassan Mumuni, has expressed his commitment to ensure that the constituency benefits from the 200 Senior High Schools (SHS) to be built across the country, promised by President John Mahama during his campaign in the 2012 election.

According to the MP, the area currently cannot currently boast of a single SHS, a situation that has had adverse effect on the education of some of the students in the locality.

Speaking to Ghanamps.gov.gh, Hon. Alhassan Mumuni stated that the absence of an SHS, has created room for school dropouts, as some of the students after J.H.S do not find themselves in boarding schools and so having to attend day schools in other places becomes difficult for them and rather resort to staying home instead.

He added that once the SHS is established in the area, there is there likelihood that officials who would work in the school would be indigenes, a development that would have a direct bearing on the people which would encourage others to continue their education.
