Kumasi, July 25, GNA - The Offinso North District Assembly in

collaboration with its residents abroad would provide education sponsorship

for needy but brilliant students.
The collaboration is also to formulate measures to expand

vocational and technical schools in the district to train the youth and school

drop-outs to acquire employable skills.
Mr Kojo Appiah-Kubi, the District Chief Executive (DCE), who told

the Ghana News Agency on Friday in Kumasi, said the assembly was

determined to promote education.
He said stakeholders would be encouraged to invest in education at all

levels in order for the district to build the kind of human resource base needed

to support the developmental agenda of the area.
The DCE expressed unhappiness about the high rate of

unemployment among the youth in the district.
Mr Appiah-Kubi touched on post-harvest losses of agricultural

products particularly, tomato, which is produced on large-scale in the area as

another major concern to the assembly.
“My predecessors were working hard to secure storage facilities and

processing machines for tomato storage and I hope to continue with

consultations with stakeholders for the achievement of this objective”.

The DCE said farmers found it difficult to plough back their

investments due to the post-harvest losses.
He called on the people to support the assembly to implements its

policies and programmes.
