The Member of Parliament (MP) for Bantama, Francis Asenso-Boakye, has hosted 55 pupils from his constituency at Parliament House in Accra. 

The visit, the first of its kind since Mr. Asenso-Boakye assumed office as MP for Bantama in the Ashanti region in January 2021, saw 55 selected students across various schools in his constituency, together with their teachers touring Parliament on Tuesday, November 1. 

Prior to Mr. Asenso-Boakye meeting the group, the students had a guided tour of the House, followed by an observation in the chamber of proceedings of Parliament for the day.

Addressing the pupils after a session in parliament, the MP, who is also the Minister of Works and Housing, urged them to make education a priority in their lives as it will ensure they have a better future. 

“Without education, I would not be where I am today, so you have to take your education seriously,” he advised them.
