Togbui Afede XIV, the Agbogbomefia of the Asogli State welcoming Vice-President Dr Bawumia to the durbar
The Agbogbomefia of the Asogli State, Togbe Afede XIV, says the implementation of the free senior high school (SHS) policy is a giant step by the government to liberate Ghanaians from the grips of poverty.
"We are excited about the free SHS because education is the most effective weapon against poverty," he said while addressing this year’s Asogli Yam festival in Ho last Saturday.
Togbe Afede said it was important for leaders to do things differently and make good use of the resource to better the lives of citizens.
"As leaders, our energies should be directed towards wealth creation. We need to pull our people from poverty and that is why I am happy about the good initiatives being implemented by the government,” he stated.
