Ghana's Consul General in Lagos, Samata Gifty Bukari, said that for African countries to develop, it is necessary to make more efforts in education, with the cooperation of the people. Bukari, who said this during an acquaintance visit to Ferscoat School, a Ghanaian educational institution in Ipaja, Lagos, noted that youth education is essential for national development.
“Educating young people means a lot, with appropriate and quality education, the sky is limitless. The Consul General urged African countries to prioritize education for the development of their region. “If Nigeria, Ghana, Togo, and other countries develop, medical tourism abroad will decrease significantly,” she said. While praising the founder for his efforts in building the school to its current state, Bukari said her team was there to provide the school with the support it needed. "We're happy with what you're doing and we're impressed." The Consul General, while speaking at the school, urged the students to behave well and work hard to achieve success. In terms of choosing a career, she advises students to choose an area where they are strong and not be distracted by peer pressure.
School owner Felix Opata thanked the Consul General for the visit and attributed the result to teamwork, resilience and hard work. Opata said he started the school with two children, but today, 30 years later, the school has more than 1,000 primary and secondary students.
