The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has given his full blessing to the proposed Mountain Movers School Complex to be constructed at Goaso in the Asunafo North Municipality of the Brong-Ahafo Region.

The multi-dollar school complex project is being financed by Mountain Movers Development Rescue Programme (MMDRP) chaired by a Ghanaian based in the United Kingdom, Bishop Elisha Kwabena Boateng, who is the General Overseer of Mountain Movers Chapel International. It is being supported by Footprints International and Corn House Foundation, Germany-based charity organisations.

Upon its completion, the school will have ultra-modern state-of-the-art facilities from the primary, junior high, senior high and university levels – all at the same campus.

Bishop Boateng on Sunday, March 1, led a team of officials from his organization, including Johannes Walter, Chairman of Footprints International and representative of Corn House Foundation as well as   Nana Agyei-Kodie Anane-Agyei, Communication Director of MMDRP, to the Manhyia Palace on the second Akwasidae to pay a courtesy call on the Asantehene and to announce the project to him.

He pledged his personal support for the project while commending the bishop for being a true son of the land by deciding to bring the laudable project to Ghana.

Present at the meeting were a number of dignitaries, including former President John Agyekum Kufuor; outgoing Ashanti Regional Minister, Samuel Sarpong and the Ashanti Regional Police Commander, DCOP Kofi Boakye.

Mr. Anane-Agyei, who briefed Otumfuo on the project, noted that the school, when completed, would be one of the best in the West African sub-region in terms of facilities as well as availability of teaching and learning materials.

Sod Cutting
Speaking at a sod cutting ceremony at Goaso to commence the construction of the school on Tuesday, the paramount chief of the Goaso Traditional Area, Nana Akwasi Bosompra I, lauded the project and called on the residents to support it to ensure its early completion.

The chief indicated that the project would open up the municipality, and directed the municipal authorities to do their best to relocate the lorry park to ensure free flow of traffic.

Bishop Boateng said the vision of his organization is to help promote quality education.
