30 students at the various tertiary institutions have received financial assistance from the Member of Parliament for Dormaa-West constituency in the Dormaa-West District of the Bono Region.
The MP, Vincent Oppong Asamoah, who assisted the students with his share of the District Assembly Common Fund told Yagbon News that it is his priority to ensure education and health get the needed boost in his constituency.
He said it is a social intervention for people to get the best from education.
“As long as I remain an MP, it will be my hallmark to make sure that my people get the best in education and health. It has always been my pleasure to serve the people . The only way to build bridges to the future is to educate. When it comes to education and health, we don’t have to play with it. These are the most social interventions that we must support.”
He urged the beneficiaries to put the monies to good use.
“I want to encourage them to take their education very seriously, he said .
The beneficiaries expressed their gratitude to the MP. They prayed for God’s guidance and protection for him and also assured him that the monies would be put to the purpose it is intended for.
“I am very glad that the MP has given me this assistance. All I want to say is that may the Almighty Allah continue to bless and guide him in all his endeavours. Hon Vincent is a good man, and I want to assure him that we would use the money for the purpose. We applied to pay our school fees, and we will surely do that,” one beneficiary assured.
The Member of Parliament recently during the Christmas festive organised a free health screening exercise for the people living in his constituency.
The exercise was held at the SDA park and the free-health screening is the maiden edition for the constituents which the MP described as the best event he has ever organised in his political career.
“The event saw over thousand residents patronizing it and am really impressed with the attendance”, the MP told Yagbon News in an interview.
