The Minority in Parliament is urging the Ministry of Education to provide a detailed plan for the distribution of Tablets to Senior High Schools (SHSs) as part of the Ghana Smart Schools Project (GSSP). Their call aims to ensure thorough oversight and inclusion of all schools and students in the initiative.

Dr. Clement Apaak, the Deputy Ranking Member of Parliament, revealed this during a field visit by the Parliamentary Select Committee on Education to K A Technologies Ltd in Accra. This company manufactures the Students’ Mate Tablets distributed by the government under the One Student – One Tablet program, aimed at advancing digital education in schools.

The parliamentary delegation, led by Chairman Kwabena Amankwah Asiamah, visited the production facilities and interacted with management to understand the company’s operations. Mr. Lawrence Hornuvo, the General Manager, assured the committee of the company’s commitment to delivering high-quality products and services.

Chairman Asiamah praised the company’s efforts and urged them to ensure equitable access to Tablets for all students. He also emphasized the importance of prompt payments from the government to facilitate the distribution process.

Dr. Apaak expressed satisfaction with the visit, highlighting the benefits of supporting a local company and ensuring job creation within Ghana.

The Minority insists on a comprehensive rollout of the distribution to prevent any student or school from being overlooked. The delegation was joined by officials from the Ministry of Education, the TVET Commission, and the Free SHS Secretariat.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo initiated the Ghana Smart Schools Project in March, aiming to transform schools into smart learning environments and provide technology-assisted devices to enhance education.
