THE Member of Parliament (MP) for Bantama, Ms Cecilia Abena Dapaah, has presented building materials valued at GH¢17,000 to support a number of development projects in the constituency.
The items were made up of 798 bags of cement and 50 packets of roofing sheets.
They were purchased with funds from the MP’s share of the District Assemblies’ Common Fund.
For the 24 institutions that benefited from the package, most of them were schools.
A number of the schools have not seen any rehabilitation for a long period of time so the MP’s donation came as a relief to the authorities.
Some of the institutions that benefited from the package were Bohyen Muslim Community School, Kropo Library Project, Bantama St Anthony’s Roman Catholic School, Bantama and Abrepo Methodist Primary Schools, Kumasi Girls’ Senior High School, Bantama Islamic Primary School and Kindergarten, Philips Commercial School and Adumanu Primary School.
According to the MP, the reason to place premium on education was premised on the fact that education was the cornerstone of the development of any community.
She stated that she would continue to provide more support for educational institutions as a way of improving standards of education in the constituency.
Ms Dapaah said as an MP, her duty was to see to the improvement in the lives of her constituents and that she promised to do with all seriousness.
She mentioned a number of development projects she had undertaken in the constituency and said they were done devoid of any parochial political interest.
The MP stated that there was a lot more to do to raise the living standards of the people, and therefore, called for unity in the constituency to achieve the set targets.
The Ohwimhene, Nana Kusi Baah, who chaired the ceremony, was full of praise for the MP for her continuous support towards the development of the area.
He urged the beneficiaries of the package to put the items to good use.
