Artisans advised to work hard

By gna

Mr Freeman Madzi, Executive Director of 'ASCUM', an international Community-Based Organisation, has emphasised the need for artisans in the country to execute jobs offered them satisfactorily and on time.

He said when they were able to do this, they would be given more jobs, especially by the European Union, which is undertaking a number of projects in the country.

Mr. Madzi made this remark when he met a group of number of artisans dotted around the Suhum Kraboa Coaltar District in the Eastern Region, at Amanase on Saturday.

The Abibiman Sankofa Cultural Movement (ASCUM) has over 800 members from 22 Units (Branches) scattered in the district. Some of them are palm oil producers, farmers and mostly artisans.

He urged the artisans, especially members of SCUM not to use the current rainfall as an excuse to delay their jobs.

The Executive Director advised them to rekindle their communal spirit, so as to put in their maximum efforts at supporting communal labour in their respective localities.

Mr. Lord de-Graft Aikins, Co-ordinating Director of ASCUM, told the meeting that there was dignity in labour, hence it behoved on them to work hard to earn decent livelihood.

Mr. Aikins cautioned: "For you to win more contracts, you need to go about your jobs with diligence, respect and low quotations".
