The General Secretary of the governing NPP, John Boadu, on Friday, October 8, 2021, cut sod for the construction of an ultramodern office complex to serve as the Bono Regional Secretariat of the Party, in Sunyani. He commended the Regional Party, led by the Regional Chairman, Kwame Baffoe ‘Abronye’, for taking up this initiative of getting a permanent party secretariat for the regional party, and securing a land for this purpose.
Speaking at a brief sod-cutting ceremony at the project site, on the sidelines of the 2021 Bono Regional Annual Delegates Conference of the Party, the NPP General Secretary, after donating an amount of GHc50,000 as seed money in support of the Project, also promised to offer all such financial and material assistance as will be required to ensure the timely completion of the Project.
The Project is expected to be completed by May, 2022, before the next Bono Regional Annual Delegates Conference of the Party. To ensure that the Project is completed within schedule, a 9-member ad-hoc committee was put together by the regional party, and inaugurated by the General Secretary, at the conference, for this purpose. The committee is chaired by Joesph Mensah, the regional first vice chairman.
Meanwhile, the Vice President of the Republic, H.E Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has donated an amount of GHc50,000 as well as 1000 bags of cement to the Project Committee and the Regional Party in support of the Project, with the promise to do more to ensure the timely completion of the office complex.
This donation was made on behalf of Dr. Bawumia by his Senior Advisor, and former Board Chair of the Bui Power Authority, Mr. Fred Oware. The Vice President also supported the organization of the Bono regional conference, just as he’s done for all the regions that have held their regional conferences thus far.
Other donations in support of the Project were received from the Party’s Parliamentary caucus in the Bono Region, through its chairperson and MP for Sunyani East, Hon Kwasi Ameyaw-Cheremeh, as well as the Regional Minister, Hon Justina Awo-Banahene and MMDCEs from the Bono Region.
