Former President John Dramani Mahama has shared a memory of him providing thousands of poor children in the country with sandals for school during his time as President.

In a Facebook post on Saturday, Mr Mahama highlighted the need for every Ghanaian child to have access not only to quality education but to basic infrastructure and items like shoes and uniforms.

The former President’s post contained images of two school children of the Ada Foah Roman Catholic Basic School I’m Ada East District in the Greater Accra Region whom he was assisting to wear sandals.

Reminiscing the moment in the post sighted by ABC News, the former President wrote, “Every child is important and every child deserves good education. Too many of our children don’t have access to the basic infrastructure and needs for a good education- including, sadly, shoes.

All teachers, students and church goers must undergo mandatory COVID-19 test funded by government – Mahama

“As President, I was proud to provide thousands of our poorest children with sandals. I remember visiting the Ada Foah Roman Catholic Basic School in the Ada East District and I personally put the sandals on the feet of the young boy and girl (in the attached photograph). I am hopeful they and their colleague beneficiaries are doing well in school.

“Do you recognize this boy or girl? I hope they are safe and healthy in this difficult time. I look forward to tracing and visiting their families soon,”
