The MP took turns to dine with over one thousand pupils from selected schools in the constituency and also supported the roofing of the Sekondi Presbyterian School with GH₵ 20,000.00.
“50 years is a milestone and I cherish this day so much in my life. So today I decided to celebrate with the pupils in my constituency. I have already made donations and I’m having a good day with the pupils,” he indicated.
He continued that: “It has also come to my attention that the contractor in charge of the Presbyterian school has abandoned the project. We are working to ensure his contract is abrogated but I have provided money for roofing sheets to serve as a temporal measure whilst we work on the project.”
