Pentecostal Developers hands over plots to clients
Such an initiative, according to him, would help create jobs for the rural dwellers, especially the youth and also spearhead the development of such areas since it would pave the way for roads and other infrastructure to be improved.
Mr Opoku-Mensah made this known at a ceremony that preceded the handover of 40 out of 120 building plots to the company's clients at Ampabame Number Two in the Atwima Kwanwoma District in the Ashanti Region.
The beneficiary clients had paid half the cost of the plots as spelt out in their agreements and have up to nine months to pay the balance.
The PEDC was established in 2012, and has so far been able to secure litigation-free building plots for over 400 clients at strategic locations nationwide.
Mr Opoku-Mensah urged people to avoid dealing with non-recognised institutions to avoid being swindled, adding that even with the recognised institutions, there was the need for their background to be checked before transacting such expensive transactions with them.
The Area Head of the Kwadaso Church of Pentecost, Apostle Ekow Badu Wood, who performed the sod-cutting before the plots were handed over to the owners, said the church, of which the MD of the company is a member, did not only stand for the spiritual development of its members but also the social development of society as a whole.
He said the church would continue to develop better and prudent initiatives that would enhance the development of society in general.
The chief of the area, Nana Kofi Adu Kwagyan II, who was the special guest at the ceremony, commended the company for its decision to support the development of the rural areas.
