Minister calls on youth to support communities

Mr Ben Spencer Dagadu, Deputy Minister of Energy, has urged young adults to be community-spirited and offer practical support towards the development of their communities.

“There is blessing in supporting community development efforts, I can assure you,” he said.

Mr Dagadu said this at a fund-raising durbar organized by Dodome-Doglome and Dodome-Awiasu communities in Ho-West District to climax their Yam festival under the theme, “The significance of ICT Education in contemporary Ghana-the role of the citizen.”

The durbar, which marked the resumption of co-operation between the two communities after 25 years suspension, realized 10,100 Ghana cedis and pledges of support towards the completion of an Information Communication Technology (ICT) training centre for the local Junior High School.

Mr Dagadu gave 2,000 Ghana cedis towards the project, Nii Laryea Afotey Agbo, Volta Regional Minister also supported with 1,000 Ghana cedis and 100 bags of cement.

Mr Emmanuel Bedzra, Member of Parliament for Ho-West, gave 500.00 Ghana cedis while Mr Samuel Ewoade, District Chief Executive for the Ho-West, pledged 50 bags of cement and technical support on behalf of the Assembly.

Citations were presented to Mr Dagadu, Mr Bedzra, Professor Benony K. Kortatsi and Dr Cyril Krah among others in recognition of various forms of support towards the development of the area.

Togbe Dokpo VI, Chief of Dodome-Doglome, urged the government to resume work on the road linking Dodome to Lume and Matse.

He said teachers and health workers were shying away from the area because of the unsafe nature of the road.

Portions of the road between Matse and Lume have been tarred but the larger segment between Lume-Ge and Dodome has become unattractive to vehicles giving a fertile ground to motorbike taxi services to thrive.

Much of the banana and other foodstuffs sold in Ho originate from the area.
