Tue, 6 Oct 2020 Source: Peace FM

On January 7, 2017, when H.E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo was sworn in as the President of Ghana, the Akuapem North Constituency has greatly benefitted from his top-notch human-centered policies and unprecedented infrastructural developments.

Since the inception of the country Ghana, never has Akuapem North benefited enormously within the first 4 years of any government; be it democratic or military rule.

Policies

Free Senior High School:

On February 11, 2017, during the 60th Anniversary Celebration of Okuapemman School, President Akufo-Addo stated “We will fund the cost of public senior high schools for all those who qualify for entry from the 2017/2018 academic year onwards. By Free SHS, we mean that, in addition to tuition, which is already free, there will be no admission fees, no library fees, no science center fees, no examination fees, no computer lab fees, and no utility fees; there will be a free textbook, free boarding, and a free meal, and day students will get a meal at school for free.” True to the words of the President, Free SHS was implemented in September 2017. It is important to note that, across all the Senior High Schools within the constituency, a total of 12,185 students have benefited from the Free SHS. Benkum – 2,668, Okuas - 2,526, PSTS (Larteh) – 961, MEGHIS – 2,220, Sinai – 1,590, Mampong Presec – 2,730, SectechDeaf – 310, Mangoase SHS – 1,548.

Aside the huge human resource development, Free SHS has also brought great relief to parents and guardians.

Planting for Food and Jobs:

With Farmers drawn within the constituency, 3,249 farmers benefited both in terms of seeds and fertilizers and other services and logistics as of 2019 under the Planting for Food and Jobs.

Planting for Export and Rural Development:

43,500 oil palm seedlings were distributed in 14 communities and 44,540 coffee seedlings were distributed in 43 communities within the constituency. About 400 Farmers benefited from the Planting for Export & Rural Development’s Programme.

1 Constituency 1 Ambulance:

Akuapem North has been provided with the state of the artfully fitted ambulance & Ambulance Bay and currently operational.

District 1 Factory (1D1F):

Under the 1D1F, Akro Farms Ltd located in Apasare is currently under operation and has created both direct and indirect job opportunities for over 1,025 individuals involved in the poultry value chain in the constituency.

Asili Coffee Processing Factory located in Akropong is also in operation and a Palm Processing Plant in Yensiso yet to be operationalized.

Nation Builders Corps (NABCO):

With NABCO beneficiaries drawn across the entire constituency, 350 graduates have been engaged in the Nation Builders Corps under the various modules. This policy has greatly benefited Okuapemman graduates and youth, who hitherto were unemployed. This major intervention has enabled beneficiaries to build on their working confidence and experience, which has enabled them to be employable.

Forestry Commission Afforestation Programme:

Afforestation Programme beneficiaries were drawn across the entire constituency, 250 youth benefits from Afforestation Programme. This programme has enabled these youth to appreciate the significance and the essence of tree planting and the need to keep our environment green.

Youth Agency Employment Module:

National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Plan (NEIP):

250 individuals have benefited from the Business Development Support under NEIP and are successfully employed. This programme has empowered these beneficiaries to employ others within the constituency.

Microfinance and Small Loans Centre (MASLOC):

Over 1200 individuals have benefitted from MASLOC. This intervention, which cuts across the entire constituency has assisted these beneficiaries, mostly women, grow and expand their businesses as well as enhanced job and wealth creation. Some of the beneficiaries through the expansion of their business have been able to employ and provided job opportunities for family members and friends.
