President John Atta Mills on Thursday affirmed the National Democratic Congress (NDC) commitment in enhancing the welfare of children. He said this in a message Mr Mark Woyongo, the Upper East Regional Minister, read at the annual regional end of year party for children of basic schools in Bawku. The President said the government was committed to providing human and financial resources to promote the growth and development of its young ones. He said “the government realizes the need for a children’s budget because our children are voiceless and vulnerable,” he said. Mr. Abdulai Musal, the Municipal Chief Executive of Bawku, expressed the government’s concern for the plight of teachers and children of Bawku who work and learn in a conflict situation and urged them not to relent in their efforts. He said the government had put in place incentive packages for teachers who accepted postings to rural areas.
