Pupils of Etsiapa Memorial Methodist School in Elmina in the Komenda Edina Eguafo Abrem [KEEA] Municipality are heaving sighs of relief as the school is currently enjoying some rehabilitation works.

The not so long ago dilapidated school building, according to our reporter, Henrietta Otoo are being put in shape by the Ghana Education Service shortly after an appeal to government by pupils of the school.

Prior to this assistance, classes were held in pretty much deteriorated structures which had ripped roofs with broken windows.

President Akufo-Addo

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has launched a National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Plan (NEIP) with a seed capital of US$10 million to support the youth to grow their business ventures.

The plan is also intended to encourage the youth to come up with creative ideas that can be developed into enterprises.

The seed money is expected to be leveraged to raise about US$100 million from private sources and public organisations to fund the programme.
