Canoe owners get outboard motors in Eastern Region

Dr Kwasi Akyem Apea-Kubi, the out-going Eastern Regional Minister, has presented two Yahama outboard motors to some canoe owners at Donkorkrom in the Kwahu North District.

He said the presentation of the items were as a result of a request made to President John Evans Atta Mills during his visit to the District.

Dr Apea-Kubi said some canoe owners who had no outboard motors had difficulty fishing on the river and accessibility to the other side of the river was also difficult hence the importance to acquire those outboard motors.

Mr Issaka Ibrahim, the District Chief Executive for Kwahu North, who received the motors on behalf of the canoe owners, expressed appreciation to the President and the Minister.

He said the outboard motors would also help health workers in the area who rely on canoes to cross the river to the other side.

Mr Ibrahim said at night, the health workers had difficulty crossing the river, when there was an emergency and the pontoon was unavailable.
