The MCE added that the model of the KG block at Obengkrom was the first of its kind within the municipality. He stressed that it was the first of its kind because unlike the other KG blocks within the Municipality, this one would be fenced so that the school children would be confined to one area and would be opened only after school.
He added that the CHPS compound was fifth of its kind in the Municipality since the NPP government came into power in 2016.
Mr. Dasmani urged the community to accord the contractor all the needed support to help bring the project to successful completion.
To the contractors, he employed them to use most of the people from the community in their activities to help them also get something doing.
Two of the project at Obengkrom and Yawkrom will be financed from the District Development Fund whist that Agyikrom and Bogoso would be financed from the mineral Development Fund.
