This was made known on Friday when the Minister paid a courtesy call on the chiefs of Ekumfi, as part of activities aimed at conscientizing the people of the Region on the ninth edition of the National Sanitation Day Exercise on Saturday August 1.

The decision to name the school after the late President, according to the Minister, was part of efforts by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to duly honour the immense contribution of the late president to improve the quality of education in the country.

The Acting president of the Ekumfiman Traditional Council, Nana Edna XIII and other chiefs expressed their appreciation to the government and pledged their support to the Ministry of Local Government to ensure that the Sanitation Day exercise was successful.
