Nana Adawu XIII
The chief of Gomoa Whida in the Central Region, Nana Adawu XIII, has charged Ghanaians to make education a priority, as that is the only way to ensure sustainable development of the country.
‘Indeed, education is key to the development of not only the individual, but the community as a whole,’ he said, adding that the world was moving forward via the vehicle of education, and Gomoa Whida could not afford to be left behind.
The chief made the remarks during the sod-cutting ceremony for a Junior High School project in his village. The three-block project will cost GH¢150,000, and the first block is expected to be completed by November this year.
Nana Adawu noted, ‘As we embark on this project, it is my belief that residents will give their maximum cooperation, so that our children and children’s children will benefit from our efforts today.
‘It is my hope that the JHS we are about to set up will produce doctors, lawyers, engineers and more, so that our people will in future be counted among the most educated persons in Ghana and beyond.’
He disclosed that he, together with his elders, had decided to transform Gomoa Whida into an industrial city within the shortest possible time, and that a plastic reprocessing plant would be installed soon to establish a factory that would employ more than 100 youth of the area.
‘As we speak, the land earmarked for this project is being cleared, and the machinery and equipment will be shipped in by the end of October this year,’ the chief said.
‘Indeed, our dream is to make Gomoa Whida a beacon not only in the Central Region but in Ghana as a whole. We want to resource our youth so that they become employers to other people outside of our community,’ he concluded.
On his part, Obirifou Ahonako Ahor-Ankobea II, the Omanhene of Gomoa Akyempim, said as chiefs, they were continuing where their forefathers had left off.
He urged all his sub chiefs to live exemplary lives, commending the chief of Gomoa Whida for his efforts at bringing prosperity to the area.
