The Ghana Education Service (GES) has provided 16 motorbikes to circuit supervisors and other officers and 60 bicycles to teachers in deprived communities in the Zabzugu/Tatale District to facilitate their work.
The 16 motorbikes were sold to the circuit supervisors at 23.5 million cedis for male teachers and 16 million cedis for the female teachers.
Alhaji Yakubu Bukari, Zabzugu/Tatale District Chief Executive who made the presentation on behalf of the GES at Zabzugu, said education was the bedrock for the development of every nation and as such the government cared for the welfare of teachers.
