Ho West MP receives award for promoting education

Member of Parliament for Ho West, Emmanuel Kwasi Bedzrah has received a leadership impact award for outstanding contributions to the promotion of best practices in education in Africa.      

A Nigerian base non-governmental organization Exam Ethics Marshalls International (EEMI) in Abuja presented the award to the Lawmaker during its 23rd International Conference. 

EEMI which has its head office in Abuja - Nigeria operates in Africa and has chapter in Ghana. Its objective is to combat examination malpractice, education dishonesty and corruption in education in Africa.     

It was funded in 1996 to inspire stakeholders in education to work individually and collectively to promote ethics and integrity and best practice in education.  
 
Mr. Bedzrah who dedicated the award to his constituents promised to continue to do more to support education in Ghana.  

He noted that at Ashesi University in Ghana, examinations are written without the physical presence of invigilators, “the practice inspires confidence, builds integrity and eliminates fear and panic that comes with writing examinations”.  

The Ho West lawmaker, therefore urged EEMI to encourage this practice by other educational institutions across the continent.
