Madam Seidu Fati, Director of Management Division of the Public Services Commission has called on children to cultivate a habit of reading to help them acquire the requisite knowledge that would help them excel.

Madam Fati who was speaking at the commissioning of a community library at Mandari on September 24,2021,said there was joy in reading.
Speaking at the event as the chairperson,she said it was easier for one to make meaningful progress in life if he or she could read, calling for more reading materials to be made available to the community library.
She reminded the pupils in the community that education is very crucial for them to achieve a desired future; “I wish to remind our young people that, looking at what ordinary people have achieved in life, where you are born, where you come from, or even your family circumstances should not be a barrier to your success in life. Education is, however, the key to achieve a desired future. It does not matter how you start out in life. What you do with the opportunities that come your way will determine how you end up in life.”
Mr Aaron Kuwornu, Director of the Ghana Library Authority for Northern, North-East and Savannah regions advised the pupils to take their academic work seriously and make good use of library to build their capacities in order to excel in their examinations.
