Winneba fishermen receive outboard motors

The Effutu Municipal Chief Executive, Nii Ephraim, has presented six Yamaha Outboard Motors to some fishermen in Winneba, who have registered under the Local Enterprise and Skills Development (LESDEP).

Nii Ephraim urged the youth to register with LESDEP to enable them to better their lot.

According to him, sometime last year, 26 Yamaha outboard motors were distributed to other fishermen in the Municipality, and that plans are far advance for the government to introduce fibre boats for fishermen to replace the wooden canoes, which were becoming hard to come by following the destruction of the forests.

Mr Godwin Sowah, Central Regional LESDEP Coordinator, said 1,790 people had been trained by LESDEP in several vocations, including Hair Dressing, Dressmaking and Transport Operations in the Region, with 130 coming from the Effutu Municipality.
