Rt. Hon. Alban Kingsford Bagbin(Second from Right)

The decision by governments to categorize secondary schools into A, B, C, D and so on is unfair and discriminatory and must be stopped as soon as practicable.

Speaking in Wa during an inspection of an Auditorium being built for the Wa Senior High School, Rt Hon Alban Bagbin expressed a strong opposition to the policy of categorizing senior high schools which in his opinion is a recipe for bias and further deprivation.

According to the Rt Hon Speaker, every school anywhere across the country is entitled to the best of infrastructure needed for the enhancement and facilitation of smooth teaching and learning.

In his opinion, this is the surest way by which the yawning gap in education between privileged and deprived schools can be bridged to achieve parity and equity in education.

To this end, the Speaker made a solemn pledge to lobby and advocate for the allocation of modern school infrastructure for schools in the Upper West Region.


The Speaker of the 8th Parliament of the Fourth Republic of Ghana, Rt Hon Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin has credited his medical recovery to the good people of Ghana for their prayers and well wishes during his spell of indisposition.

Speaking during an inspection tour of a multi-million Ghana Cedis ultramodern auditorium he is funding at Wa Secondary school, Rt Hon Alban Bagbin ceased the opportunity to thank the rank and file of the Ghanaian people for their prayers which he believes contributed to his return to full health and physical fitness.

He assured the cheering and enthusiastic gathering of his readiness to work assiduously in his role as the third gentleman of the land to bring the needed development to the Ghana and the Upper West Region in particular.

The ongoing ultramodern auditorium is one of several projects that the speaker has initiated across the Upper West Region covering the health, education and sports sectors.

It would be recalled that Rt Hon Alban Bagbin funded the recent renovation of the Wa Sports Stadium to restore the edifice to a befitting standard deserving of a regional capital as well as the ongoing construction of a FIFA -standard astro turf field at the McCoy College of Education in Nadowli.
