Ghana’s former president, Flt Lt Jerry John Rawlings has applauded authorities at the Achimota School and others such as Wesley Girls for the efforts they have made to develop and preserve their physical structures and natural habitat.

Speaking at a meeting with the 1995 Year Group of Wesley Girls School in Cape Coast, the former president said he was amazed at the developments in Achimota School when he visited the premises. According to him, the standards of such schools give him hope that Ghana can be better.

“I couldn’t believe what I saw. I was amazed at the structures, the greenery, the gardens surrounding the structures, the houses. It was like Achimota had risen out of the ashes. The place gave me so much spiritual satisfaction that it just sparked some hope in me and I thought that if Achimota could do it then Ghana can do it,” he said.

The former president advised the students to inculcate the sense of nationalism for the betterment of the country.
“What we need to preserve, money cannot buy – that sense of patriotism, sense of fairness, self-respect and sense of dignity. We should pay back in order to maintain the standards for the benefit of the country.”

The former President commended Wesley Girls School for their sense of discipline aside being academically excellent.

The delegation was led by its President Asibi Ofori, patron, actress Anima Misa and Dr. Zanetor Agyeman-Rawlings.
