Reverend John Ntim Fordjour, Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin South, has begun a free school feeding programme for 90 pupils of Assin Adubiase Methodist school.

The move formed part of a broader vision aimed at providing schools in some of the most deprived communities in the constituency with one hot nutritious meal, prepared from locally grown foodstuffs, on every school going day.

A memorial service for Kwadwo Asare-Baffuor Acheampong (KABA), who passed away on Saturday is currently underway.

KABA was pronounced dead upon arrival at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital where he had been rushed after he suddenly fell sick early Saturday, November 18.

He was 37 years old.

Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has said the-soon-to-be established Development Authorities under the government’s Infrastructure for Poverty Eradication Programme, will be funded through the one-million dollar per constituency disbursement to drive rural development.

He said the Development Authorities, which includes Northern Development Authority, Middle Belt Development Authority and the Coastal Development Authority, would receive funds equivalent to the number of constituencies that fell under them to implement their programmes.
