Suhum (E/R) Dec.05,
GNA – The government would soon rehabilitate roads in the Suhum Municipality as
plans far advanced to that effect.
The promise was made
by the Eastern Regional Minister, Mr Eric Kwakye Darfour at the grand durbar of
chiefs and people of Suhum to mark the celebration of this year’s Suhum Odwira
festival and the 20th anniversary of enstoolment of Osabarimah Ayeh
Kofi as the chief of Suhum in the Eastern Region.
Minister said the provision of good quality roads to the people was of much
concern to the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
He said the various
interventions made by the government such as Free Senior High School, Planting
for Food and Jobs, and Planting for Export and Rural Development were aimed at
raising the standard of living and the economic wellbeing of the people.
Mr Darfour said for
the first time in the country, government scholarships were awarded at the
district levels and many students need not go to Accra to apply.
Earlier in a welcome
address, Osabarima Ayeh Kofi called on the people of Suhum to unite and support
the development of the municipality.
He appealed to the
government to rehabilitate roads in the municipality.
Osabarima Ayeh Kofi
appealed for the provision of extra infrastructure for all the three Senior
High Schools in the municipality.
He said as a result
of shortage of accommodation some students have to reside in hostels outside
their school compounds which is not helpful to their education and training.
