Mr Emmanuel Armah-Kofi Buah, the Petroleum Minister and Member of Parliament for Ellembelle Constituency, over the festive season hosted Ghana’s award winning dance-hall artist, Samini at the Aya Community Centre in Ellembelle.
A statement signed by Mr Edward Abambire Bawa, the Head of Communication of the Ministry, and copied to the Ghana News Agency on Wednesday said Samini visited the Centre after his epic performance at the just ended Eikwe Yemefe, a Christmas festival in Ellembelle.
Mr Buah briefed him on the urgent need for all to get involved in the fight to provide care for the elderly in Ghana, saying, “We cannot sit and watch our elders who are less privileged continue to be in discomfort after all the years they took care of us when we were young”.
He also highlighted on Governments effort to assist less fortunate Ghanaians and further narrated a story of how he found an elderly person who had been left alone at home and was helpless.
The statement said Samini was full of joy to see how the elderly in Ellembelle were properly catered for and donated pieces of cloth to all the elderly present, promising to visit them anytime he visited the Western Region.
Samini on the other hand was grateful to Mr Buah for making time to show him around and thanked him for all the great works he was doing in Ellembelle and further urged the Minister to continue his good works, the statement added.
AYA Community Centre was established by Mr Buah as a care centre focused on promoting and encouraging the healthcare and well-being of the elderly in the Ellemebelle district and the entire Nzema land.
The Centre was commissioned in June 2015 and also serves as a safe and secure place for the elderly in the community.
