Minister of Information and Member of Parliament for Ofoase Ayirebi, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has sponsored some 400 constituents on a fully paid apprenticeship programme.

They are to undertake training in hairdressing, dressmaking, welding, carpentry and other trades.

The total cost and logistics needed for the training have been borne by the MP.

In a post on Twitter, he mentioned that his action was an “opportunity to replicate the love of Christ” as the world celebrates Good Friday.

“God, help us to succeed,” he said.

He also took the opportunity to inspect work on the Akyemansa Sports Complex, which he says is now 70% complete.

“We look forward to receiving the Black Stars here someday,” he stated.

He added that the Akokoaso-Kumanin road in the Ofoase Ayirebi constituency has also started receiving attention.

The MP said, when completed, the road will shorten the journey to Accra as it cuts through the Kumanin forest.

He further mentioned that, “Chia has also received a mobile telephone mast to improve connectivity and economic activity.”
