The Talensi District Chief Executive, Thomas Duanab Pearson Wuni has warned saboteurs and “cheap propagandists” to yank their minds from “cheap social media propaganda acts” as that cannot help to achieve the growth needed in the area.
According to him, such social media publications only ridicule leadership but do nothing to solve the problems at hand. Mr. Wuni insisted that he will not allow himself to be controlled by “social media cheap propaganda acts”.
The DCE comments come on the backdrop of the recent pictures of pupils of Yagzore basic school lying on the floor to study circulating on social media.
Speaking to the press after donating 115 dual desks to the pupils, Mr Duanab said the said school was even part of other schools his outfit listed to support with furniture.
He said, “I and my planning officer made several rounds to schools and we already knew the educational problems. So, I least expected people who are from home yet fail to approach the assembly and rather go ahead to post pictures on social media. In case they don’t know, I don’t work on social media. We as an assembly have a working plan and we are going according to that, not social media posts”.
Stressing on improving the educational infrastructure in the area, the DCE indicated that his outfit has plans to provide more furniture to various schools.
“Yes, I have made some raw estimations on the number of dual desks that can meet the furniture deficit and I can say roughly 2000 dual desks are needed. So, I’m calling on individuals both in and out of Talensi to support”, he said.
The gesture by the assembly, parents, teachers and some of the pupils however said was a dream come true as they never thought of such support.
