Twenty-five tertiary students from the Wa East District of the Upper West Region have been granted scholarships to pursue various programmes in various universities in the country.

For the first year, the government is expected to pay a total amount of GHC 60,020.36 as fees for the 25 beneficiaries from Wa East District; one of the most deprived districts in Ghana.

The Wa East District Chief Executive (DCE), Moses Jotie, speaking at the second ordinary meeting of the Assembly, said the scholarship covered the entire duration of the programme.

He urged the beneficiaries to take advantage of the opportunity to learn hard to justify their selection to the programme adding that, “This package comes with conditions such as the conduct of students and academic performance amongst others”.

The DCE said the Assembly has also given out on contract the construction of a three-unit classroom block with ancillary facilities in Gouno and Jumo communities to help improve teaching and learning.

Mr Jotie said the Assembly has also given out on contract the construction of a general ward with ancillary facilities which when completed would form part of the second phase of the District Hospital Project.
