THE Member of Parliament (MP) for Kwadaso, Dr Owusu Afriyie Akoto has opened an office in the constituency to facilitate his activities both within and without Kwadaso.
The MP’s office, the first of its kind in the constituency, is open to supporters of all the political parties.
Dr Akoto told the Daily Graphic that with the opening of the office, his constituents would have a central point to access information about their constituency even when he was outside Kumasi.
He asked the people to feel free to make use of the office so that Kwadaso would progress in its development efforts.
Dr Akoto stated that he had begun a programme to facilitate the rehabilitation of uncompleted school buildings in the constituency beginning with the Ohwimase Anglican Primary and the Nyamebekyere Metropolitan Assembly (M/A) School blocks.
The projects would be financed through the Ghana Education Trust Fund (GET) Fund).
Dr Akoto stated that he was also sourcing for funds from some embassies in the country to finance 10 school projects.
The MP stressed on the importance of education saying, "We cannot afford to downplay education because it is the surest way of building a better constituency".
He said a tree-planting project, which he launched for schools in the constituency, was progressing steadily.
The MP expressed the hope that teachers and students in the constituency would continue to keep their interest in the project.
Dr Akoto said he was arranging to provide scholarships for 50 young women to be trained in employable skills at the Women’s Training Centre at Kwadaso.
