The Lutheran Church of Ghana has decried the acute lack of logistics in the educational sector in Ghana, raising alarm that the situation is seriously hampering the development of students in the country.
The alarm bell was rung during the inauguration of 2 buses donated to the Lutheran School by the church in Madina, Accra in the Greater Accra region of Ghana on Sunday February 11th, 2024.
Speaking to the Press during the inauguration ceremony, Reverend Shadrach Donkor, President and Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Ghana indicated that, Ghana schools are facing serious logistical challenges which need immediate attention from educational stakeholders.
He explained that, logistics of different forms and kinds are very essential to the development of the Ghanaian student, as well as facilitating efficient service delivery from teachers and educational workers in every part of the world, especially in developing countries.
To him, a lot of schools are currently in dire need of good laboratory systems, Information Communication Technology (ICT) facilities which includes access to the internet, football pitches, transport system, educational kits and tools and other working tools.


He appreciated central government’s efforts and interventions toward making education better for the people in spite of the hydra headed problems facing the country and therefore do not intend to overburden it with too many demands.
However, he indicated that, these needs are very essential to the efficient realization of government’s vision for education and therefore called on government, civil society organizations and all stakeholders in the sector to channel resources towards addressing the issue.
He said further that, it is in the light of this that, the church ensured that it equip its schools with two new buses to address some of the logistical problems, though the school started not long ago.
The school, having a current population of about 3,000, the man of God said that the church was inspired by the saying in the Bible that “train the child the way to go”, hence their decision to open schools in every branch of the church in support of government’s efforts toward education delivery.
Daniel Amekudzi, National Educational Board Chairman of the church on his part said they have been guided by 5 principles in getting to the standard they are as a church.
To him, academic excellence, accountability, good corporate governance, prudence and value for money have been their hallmark and also advised all stakeholders in the educational sector to be guided by same values.


Joseph Bangam Lanbon, Director of Evangelical Lutheran Church Schools of Ghana on his part was appreciative of the gesture and added that it would help in the rebranding of the school in order to be able to stand the competition.
The Evangelical Lutheran Church of Ghana was established in 1958 by missionaries from the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod and formally registered with the Ghana government in 1964. Since then the church has established congregations and preaching stations in all 16 regions of Ghana.
