Domeabra, (Ash), Nov. 05, GNA – Mr Andy
Appiah-Kubi, Deputy Minister for Railways Development, has stressed the need
for the nation to place greater emphasis on the teaching and training of
science and technology for the youth to make them fit appropriately into the
global superhighway.

He said science and technology were critical
to sustainable national development and there was the need for the youth to be
equipped with skills and expertise that would help them to make effective use
of modern scientific and technological tools to transform society.

Mr Appiah-Kubi who is also the Member of
Parliament for Asante Akim North, made the call when he donated 40 computers
and accessories to the Oweriman Senior High School at Domeabra in the
constituency.

The occasion coincided with the cutting of the
sod to commence the construction of a modern boys’ dormitory block for the
school.

The block is to ease the acute congestion in
the school following the introduction of the free senior high school policy and
the subsequent increase in enrolment in the school.

Mr Appiah-Kubi pointed out that, science and
technology was the pivot of production, economics, research as well as social
emancipation in every society.

It was therefore important to encourage more
people to acquire skills in that area to speed up national development goals.

He charged the students to make effective use
of the computers to ensure that they were well-equipped before they left the
school.

Mr Christian Kwadwo Atta, Headmaster of the
school praised the MP for the support and pledged to put the computers into
effective use to achieve the desired results.

He appealed to other stakeholders to support
the school to help improve on teaching and learning.
