The Chiefs and people of Bonwire in the Ejisu Municipality of the Ashanti region have launched the 2019 Kente Festival slated for December.
The festival is christened “Creating Jobs, Enhancing Trade Through Culture and Fashion”
The launching was used to outdoor new Kente brands namely, Oyokoman Kaprenu and Asanteman Nkosuo.
Nana Bobie Ansah II, Bonwirehene, lauded the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa for introducing the Free Senior High School Policy.
“I commend the government for implementing the free SHS program because of its impact on our children and the country in general”
Nana Bobie Ansah II urged parents and the youth at Bonwire to take the opportunity of the free senior high school policy.
He noted that it is through only education Ghana can develop, therefore the need for parents to enroll their wards.
Nana Bobie Ansah II also used the occasion to remind the government to prioritize the town roads at Bonwire and that of the Airport Roundabout to Bonwire, which is in a very deplorable state.
He stressed that the facelift of the road network will help improve the Kente business in the area and also boost tourism revenue.
The former President of the Ghana Medical Association (GMA), Dr. Opku Adusei urged the Kente weavers at Bonwire to use high-quality materials for work to distinguish their Kente from other ones.
The Medical doctor called on residents to register with the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) to have access to other benefits of the scheme.
“We should stop criticizing the NHIS and register”, he noted.
