Kojo Bonsu, Kumasi Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE), has said that government is committed to improving access and school facilities to ensure girls stay in school.
The government, he said, is determined to equip the girls with the relevant literacy skills to the benefit of the nation.
According to him, the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) is constructing and rehabilitating educational facilities, providing furniture and other teaching and learning materials to achieve the Millennium Development Goal on girl-child education.

The MCE said Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly would continue to liaise with stakeholders to raise awareness on girl-child education.
On sanitation, Mr Bonsu advised the people to embrace good sanitary practices to ward off communicable diseases and should be law-abiding to help the Assembly meet its development agenda.
