The Deputy Bono Regional Minister, Siaka Stevens, has advocated the need for the Ghana Education Service (GES) to make the study of computer science a compulsory and core subject from the basic to secondary school levels.
He stated accelerated progress could not be attained without the efficient application of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) which is based on the knowledge of computer science, and must be made part of the core subjects – English language, Mathematics, integrated science and social studies.
Mr Stevens who is the Member of Parliament for Jaman North and the immediate past Chairman of the Parliamentary Select Committee on Education made the call when he addressed a section of students of the Sunyani Senior High School (SHS)to climax a three-day computer programming practical training in Sunyani.

The training dubbed “Hour of Code” introduced the students to ICT for inventions, how to become computer application developers and also how they would choose their career path at the tertiary level with the effective use of computer knowledge for socio-economic development.
Mr Stevens, therefore, advised pupils and Junior High School students to take computer lessons serious for their academic and professional progress.
Mr Gabriel Kwadwo Afram, the school’s ICT Tutor and facilitator of the training earlier stressed that“ICT is about creativity and problem solving”.
In that wise if the nation placed a premium on its studies, it could lead to job creation and consequently wealth-creation for an improved standard of living, he said.
