Mr Kansangbata said, “I have also adopted all the seven schools, to sponsor their mock exams for the next four years,” adding, each teacher who handles a course would also be provided with textbooks to facilitate lesson delivery.
“This is just to give back to society to enable vulnerable children to also climb up the academic ladder.

“My target is seven communities that would benefit 7,000 excise books,” he stressed, “This is a personal project.”
