Mama Pat, on the hand has also provided incentives to almost all basic schools to ensure pupils pass their BECE exams to access the free SHS program, Mr Kyei posited.

Mr Kyei said he was hopeful that all programs and initiatives such as the one district one factory as well as other interventions including the planting for food and jobs would help put the Ghanaian economy on a sound footing from 2021 and beyond.

He noted that much progress would be seen in the lives of citizens who are on the modules of NABCO and the youth employment agencies since it would now become full time jobs.

Mr Kyei said with Asokwa attaining municipal status the assembly would help to generate enough revenue to cater for the pressing challenges including unemployment in the communities.

So far, the first vice said he was happy with the enthusiasm shown by residents and party sympathisers in the door to door campaign which the party has adopted, adding he was hopeful the target of 85% or more would be achieved by the party.
