The Paramount Chief of Breman Esikuma Traditional Area in the Central Region, Odeifour Amoakwa Boadu XIII, has commended the Nana Akufo-Addo-led government for introducing the Free Senior High School (SHS) policy.

According to him, the Free SHS Policy has saved his traditional council over GHS60,000 meant to support needy but brilliant students.

He explained that Bremen Esikuma Traditional Council awarded GHS500.00 scholarship each to over 25 students in previous academic year, however the start of the Free SHS programme means that money will be invested in other areas.

Nana Amoakwa also hailed the government for restoring nurses and midwife trainee allowance aimed to relief financial burden of parents and guardians.

He made the comments when the Regional Minister, Kwamena Duncan, and his entourage paid a courtesy call to the Chiefs of Breman Asikuma Traditional Area on Wednesday, October 11.

Nana Amoakwa seized the opportunity to underscore the need for the Regional Coordinating Council (RCC ) to bridge the developmental gap between the poor and develop districts in the region.

Class News’ Maxwell Attah reported that chiefs of Breman Esikuma Traditional council were grateful to the President for his plans to build an E-Library in the district.

However, Nana Amoakwa decried that bad roads in the area has affected farmers’ ability to transport their farm produce to the market centers.

According to him, since his enstoolment in 2009, the deplorable road linking Breman to Sweduro is yet to see face upliftment.

He, therefore, appealed to the government to come to their aid.
