Government’s educational programmes have been beneficial – Mensah-Bonsu

Mr Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu, Minister of State and Member of Parliament for Suame Constituency, has observed that Government's educational policies and programmes had made education accessible and affordable to children.
     He said it had in addition, increased enrolment in schools from 2.7 million to five million.
     Mr Mensah-Bonsu made the observation when addressing a rally organised by Suame Constituency Secretariat of NPP at Anomangye and Kropo in Kumasi.
     He said the Peoples' Assembly Concept introduced by NPP had deepened democracy, good governance and development of Ghana.
     Mr Mensah-Bonsu said Government was committed to the development of all communities in the country and provision of classroom blocks, hospitals, clinics, access roads, electricity, potable water and other basic social amenities for the people.
     He said the NPP under President John Agyekum Kufuor had laid a solid foundation for socio-economic development in the country and was optimistic his successor Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo would be given the mandate to continue.
     Mr Mensah-Bonsu said Nana Akufo-Addo would continue to pursue sound socio-economic policies on agriculture, industries and other sectors to contribute meaningfully to the economy by providing jobs for the people and improve on the Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
     He noted that most Ghanaians had accepted the NPP Government as the best in Ghana's political history and urged the electorate to renew its mandate to continue with the country's development.
     Mr Mensah-Bonsu announced that some communities in the constituency including Old and New Suame, Kwapra, Kronom, Bremang, Abusuakruwa, Maakro and Kropo had been provided with basic infrastructure to enhance their living standards.
     Mr Badu Boahen, Suame Constituency Chairman of NPP educated the electorate on the voting procedure and advised them to exercise their franchise on December 7 and vote massively for the NPP.
