The Cape Coast North Member of Parliament, Dr. Kwamena Minta Nyarku has donated a motorcycle to his chief trainer Seth Acheampong to aid him to train more of his constituents in skills acquisition.
Since becoming the Member of Parliament for Cape Coast North Constituency, Dr. Kwamena Minta Nyarku has embarked on an empowerment programme with the objective of providing skills training to the youth.
About 580 young people have benefited from this initiative which is ongoing.
Mr. Seth Acheampong, who is a member of the constituency and doubles as the lead trainer for Dr. Minta Nyarku's Empowerment Initiative, has taken people through bio-digester construction, mushroom farming, 3D and 5D Epoxy, body cream production, weedicide preparation, banana ice cream, brown sugar, liquid soap etc.
Over the weekend, as part of the second phase of My Empowerment Initiative, Dr. Kwamena Minta Nyarku presented certificates to over 58 participants at Duakor community for successfully completing their respective programmes.
Three weeks ago, over 65 participants also completed their training at Ebubonko Community and were duly given their certificates.
Speaking while donating the motorbike, the Cape Coast North Member of Parliament said "This gesture is to support the trainer to be able to cover the entire Constituency with ease. I sponsored his training and I am so glad that he is equally putting it to good use by empowering others to learn same.
"I think he's been good at what he does for my constituents and this motorbike is to help ease his transportation cost and to also make commuting within the constituency relatively easy for him. I guess with this more people would benefit from his knowledge and training skills."
Mr. Acheampong expressed his utmost surprise at the honour done him. He stated, "I shall now be able to go to the hinterlands within the Cape Coast North Constituency to help a lot more people to meet the MP's Empowerment vision".
He continued, "This isn't something I expected but, I can't thank the MP enough but, all I can say is that God bless him for his kind gesture and his vision to provide skills training for a lot more people. God bless him abundantly."
