The First Lady, Mrs Rebecca Naa Okaikor Akufo-Addo, has presented face masks to final year senior high school (SHS) students in some selected schools in the Greater Accra Region, as they sit for the 2021 West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examinations (WASSCE).

In all, 190,000 face masks were presented to 19 SHSs through the Rebecca Foundation and the Chinese Embassy in Ghana.

At a brief ceremony to present the items to the beneficiary institutions, the Director of Operations at the Office of the First Lady, Mrs Akosua Newman, said the face masks were meant to keep the students safe during the period.

She said the First Lady was also hopeful that the mask would boost the confidence of the students, as well as ensure utmost concentration, during the period of their examinations.

Mrs Newman urged the students to excel in the examinations to justify the government’s investments in particularly secondary education by crowning the secondary education with good grades at the WASSCE.

She wished the students well on behalf of the First Lady.
