Ghana is blessed with well-nourished soil to depend on its own provided we invest more into commercial farming. The Bono East region alone will be capable to produce over 25 percent of rice consumed in Ghana. The Bono East regional minister hon Kwasi Adu Gyan said this when marking the 65th independence day celebration in Techiman Ohene Ameyaw Park.
Hon Kwasi Adu Gyan says the region has reached an advanced stage to go into mass rice cultivation. He says together, Ghana will not depend largely on cocoa as the only major source of income generation.
Hon Kwasi Adu Gyan charged the students to make education their pivotal dream since education is now the only key to managing life. The minister commended the two students in the region who received the president’s 2021 BECE awards. The two students are; Adjei Nereus of Techiman St Francis JHS and Zentigah Dority of Techiman Ameyw JHS. The minister honoured them with a Bono east regional citation certificate and undisclosed parcels.
Commemorating the 65th independence day at Ohene Ameyaw park, 26 schools including the primary, JHS, SHS, and the security personnel were been paraded.
At the primary level, Kromo school emerged first, Ameyaw JHS came first and the only girls’ senior high school in the region, Mount Carmel SHS also came first.
Oseadeeyo Akumfi Ameyaw iv the Omanhene of the Techiman traditional council made the first presentation to the Ameyaw JHS. Other awards to the schools were made by the Bono east regional director of education, Efuah A. Amoah, and the Techiman South member of parliament, hon. Martin Adjei Mensah Korah.
