Kumasi, Oct. 24, GNA – Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the Asantehene, has encouraged teachers to work assiduously to improve the quality of the nation’s education.
He was receiving this year’s National Best Teacher, Mrs Patricia Ampofowaah Boso, to his Manhyia Palace in Kumasi on Wednesday.
She was accompanied by the Ashanti Regional Director of Education, Mr Joseph K. Onyinah, and other prize award winners from the region.
The Asantehene renewed his pledge to do everything to support the development of education.
He congratulated them for the good job they have been doing to make the region proud, adding that, they should keep this up.
Mr Onyinah gave high marks to teachers in Ashanti, for what he said was their professionalism, commitment and dedication.
He said it was not surprising that they had since the past four years been excelling in the “national best teacher awards” - both the teaching and non-teaching categories.
