The scholarship secretariat in Ghana has offered a full scholarship to all continuing Senior High School students of Denkyira Obuasi in the Central Region.

The Registrar of the Secretariat Kingsley Agyemang, made this revelation when a delegation led by the President of the UK based Worldwide Miracle Outreach, Dr Lawrence Tetteh, paid him a courtesy call.

Agyemang explained that the first years will be covered by the free Senior High School policy just like their colleagues from other parts of the country.

Students in their second and third year would be given full scholarships under the Secretariat’s “Hardship Scholarship” to complete their courses, Registrar of the Secretariat.

He explained that his outfit decided to do this after they received a request from the opinion leaders in Denkyira Obuasi to help take care of the education expenses of children left behind by their parents.

He added that after careful deliberations the secretariat decided to enrol between “70 and 100” students from the town on the Hardship Scholarship.

Agyemang argued that the children must not be made to suffer for the criminal acts of others since they did not play a part in it.

Denkyira Obuasi became a popular town after some residents in the area lynched an officer of the 5th Infantry Battalion, Major Maxwell Mahama on May 29, 2017.

The residents of Denkyira Obuasi suspected the late soldier to be an armed robber and therefore murdered him in his line of duty.

A total of 60 suspects arrested in connection with the murder has since made an appearance at the Accra Central District Court.

This has led to a public disdain for the residents of the area.

However, according to 3new.com, the scholarship scheme is part of measures taken by the government together with other stakeholders in a restoration process of the town.
