The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Juaben in the Ashanti Region, Mr. Omane Aboagye, has urged parents to invest in their ward’s education in order to guarantee them a brighter future.
He said the education of children is key and integral if a country wants to achieve development and rob shoulders with her counterpart on the global stage.
Mr. Aboagye further appealed to parents to desist from lavishing monies on unprofitable ventures, and rather channel such resources to their ward’s education, since education is the only legacy every good parent can ever boost of.
The MCE gave this advice when he was addressing a town folks at Wannaa as part of his ten-day community engagement tour to thank and introduce himself to the Chiefs, Assembly Members and Community Members for their massive support when he was nominated for the position by the President.
Mr. Omane Aboagye also asked the chiefs for their blessings, prayers, advice and cooperation to push forward the development agenda of the Municipality.
Some of the communities visited are Achiase, Akronwi, Eassase, Wabiri, Peminase, Adumasa, New Bomfa, Nobewam, Duampompo, Kubease and Yaw Nkrumah.
The rest were New Koforidua, Boamadumase, Atia, Sekyere, Woraponso, Dumakwai, Yeboakrom and Amangonase.
The tour also afforded him the opportunity to engage with chiefs and residents on their challenges.
Most of the communities visited shared similar challenges such as poor road network, extension of electricity, street bulbs, portable drinking water, construction of health centers, police post to combat crime, toilet facility, school block and job issues as some of their major problems.
The MCE was accompanied by the Presiding Member (PM), Mr Osei Tutu, Municipal Coordinating Director (MCD), Apostle Peter Antwi Boasiako, some Heads of Departments, Assembly Members as well as party executives.
The residents through their chiefs commended the MCE for the visit and pleaded with him to address their challenges.
