Sunyani Jan 12, GNA- The government on Wednesday presented seven Nissan Pick Up vehicles to the Brong Ahafo Regional Office of the Non-Formal Education Division (NFED) of the Ministry of Education Youth and Sports in Sunyani.
Nana Kwadwo Seinti, Regional Minister, who presented the vehicles cautioned against the use of the vehicles for unofficial trips, including funerals and wedding ceremonies.
He said the government gesture was meant to improve the division's performance and urged the district directors to take record of damaged vehicles so those responsible could be surcharged.
