Saudi King to build medical school & 42 senior high schools for Ghana

The Saudi King, Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, has pledged to finance the construction of a medical university in the northern part of Ghana.

Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud has also promised to provide funding for the construction of 42 Senior High Schools in Ghana.

This was disclosed by the vice president Dr, Mahamadu Bawumia on August 11, 2019, at the national celebration of Eid-ul-Adha at the Black Star Square in Accra.

The Vice President also said 40 students, comprising 20 males and 20 females from Zongo and deprived communities would be trained as medical doctors in Cuba following a training arrangement agreed between the Cuban government and Ghana government.

He also encouraged all Muslims, especially Muslim girls to take the study of science-based courses seriously, in order to benefit from the programme.

“There are many brilliant students from the Zongo and other deprived communities who have had their dreams of becoming doctors shattered due to lack of funding. This programme would come as a welcome opportunity for such students to realise their God-given talents. And Insha Allah, this partnership between the Governments of Ghana and Cuba will produce more doctors from Zongo and other deprived communities in the country”, he explained.

He stated that “I’m also glad to announce that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has accepted another proposal by the Government of Nana Akufo-Addo to establish a Medical School in the Northern Region of Ghana.”

“Establishing a Medical School will significantly reduce the scarcity of doctors and other medical personnel in the northern part of the country. This giant step to advance the health needs of Ghana, together with Government’s other initiatives on education, vocational skills, sanitation and infrastructure development in the Zongo communities, which are being driven through the Zongo Development Fund, clearly underscore Government’s vision for the Zongo community”, he added.

Eid-ul-Adha is an occasion to remember the sacrifice Prophet Ibrahim made in obedience to the will of Allah when he accepted to sacrifice his son, Ishmael and was accorded the father of Monotheistic faith.

Dr Bawumia, therefore, beseeched all Muslims to learn from Prophet Ibrahim’s obedience and remain sincere towards the cause of national development.

He lauded the National Chief Imam, Sheikh Dr Osman Nuhu Shaributu for his exemplary leadership that promoted religious tolerance across the nation, thereby making Ghana the envy of the world.

A camel donated by Vice President Bawumia was slaughtered to symbolically mark the Eid-ul-Adha celebration, which is a festival of sacrifice.
