Member of Parliament (MP) Tamale North Constituency, Alhaji Alhassan Sayibu Suhuyini and colleagues of his year group (1997) last weekend had the feel of food served students under government’s free Senior High School when they turned up to make a donation at their alma mater.
The 1997 year group of Ghana Secondary School (GHANASCO) in Tamale was in the school to handover a refurbished library to the school which was their own initiative and letter went to dining hall where they had a taste of food served the students.
Speaking to the students after the gesture, the Tamale North lawmaker commended management for offering them the opportunity to contribute to their alma mater.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to contribute what we intend to be the first of many contributions to upgrade the facilities of this great school that made us”
According to him, the school helped in shaping his life recollecting fond memories of how he was very active in debates while as a student.
“20 years ago I stood before an audience to debate for the first time in this school; today I represent a constituency in Ghana’s Parliament. My colleagues who represented our school at the Brilliant science and Maths quiz are doctors at the Tamale Teaching hospital. Some of our colleagues are mentoring other young ones as lecturers and head teachers, some are successful entrepreneurs and we have bankers and insurance brokers among us. We all are convinced that our time in GHANASCO, the tuition we had and the bond we developed studying here continue to drive us to attain greater heights”

He disclosed that most past students are not unaware of the challenges the school was as disclosed by the current management
“We are not unaware of the challenges we faced here due to the inadequate infrastructure and the fact that many have deteriorated even further after all these years. That’s why in discussion with the school authority we decided to refurbish the library to provide a conducive place for learning and to preserve the books which we hope will send a signal to continuing students that all they need to do better than us in conquering the world can be found in books and in the library. We pray it’s well maintained and put to good use. In all about GH ¢42000 was contributed by all of us to carry out the project”, he disclosed.
