The Volta Regional elected representative to the Council of State, Francis Nyonyo Agboada has donated some assorted items as part of his contribution towards the NPP government’s Free Senior High School initiative.

The items which include exercise and note books and other materials are meant to complement government’s effort to bring free public secondary education to Ghanaians and alleviate the burden on parents through the elimination of admission fees, examination fees and utility fees, among others.

Mr. Agboada who is on a familiarisation tour to various districts in the region called for support from all sectors for a successful implementation of the policy which is scheduled to start this September.

Interacting with traditional and religious leaders as well as assembly members of Krachi East, Krachi West and Krachi Nchumuru Districts, he reiterated the need for the people to support and show more commitment towards all government policies.

He said the ‘One District, One Factory’ and ‘One Village, One Dam’ initiatives when implemented will lead to the total development of the entire Krachi zone as the area is strategically located and the initiatives will open the district up for commercial and industrial activities.

He appealed to the gathering to also support the government as it prepares for the formation of the new regions.

The Chief of Bedjamse, Obrimpon Kanya who spoke for the Krachi Wura called on the government to pay attention to the Krachi town roads and offer them adequate and sustainable water supply and electricity.

He further called for the establishment of agricultural mechanisation centres as agriculture is their main occupation in the area.

The Deputy Volta Regional Minister, Maxwell Blagogee on his part, pointed out that the free Senior High School policy has come to stay and therefore called on parents to get themselves involved for a smooth take off of the programme.

Mr. Nyonyo and his entourage later paid a courtesy call on Krachi Midwifery School where he assured students of an improvement in their learning environment.
