Awutu Bawjiase (C/R) Sept. 17 GNA-The Member of Parliament for Awutu-Senya constituency, Mr. Oppey Abbey has earmarked greater portion of his MP common fund to pay the fees of women from his constituency who would gained admission to the universities.

Mr. Oppey Abbey, who disclosed this in an interview with the Ghana News Agency at the 15th Annual General Meeting of the Awutu Bawjiase rural banks at Awutu Bawjiase said he had already given financial assistance to some few women from the constituency to the universities and he was still ready to assist more.
