‘I remain committed to making Manhyia South a beacon of skills training in Ghana’ – NAPO


The New Patriotic Party MP for Manhyia South in the Ashanti Region says his outfit will not relent on its efforts to provide skills, technical and vocational training to the youth in his constituency.

Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh believes such interventions are the surest way of tackling unemployment in the country, at large.

A training programme, spearheaded by the lawmaker who doubles as the country’s Energy Minister has already been rolled out in the constituency, in pursuit of this dream.


More than 90 beneficiaries who were selected from various electoral areas within the constituency, went through a six week training programme and have been equipped with the needed skills to become self-reliant.

At a graduation ceremony held on Friday (September 2), Dr. Opoku Prempeh, affectionately called NAPO who was excited about this feat, expressed his “strong belief in the potential of skills training to impact society by helping to create sustainable jobs.”

“I remain committed to further supporting more of such programmes in other areas of skills training in order to make Manhyia South a beacon of excellence in skills training in Ghana”, he noted, as he encouraged the graduands to continuously seek to upgrade their skills and pass their acquired knowledge on to others.

“A game changer”

The project dubbed, “Reducing Unemployment through Skills Training”, is an initiative of the College of Beauty Arts and Enterpreneurship, CBAE, with logistical support from the office of the MP.

The graduands were taking through Makeup Artistry, Fashion Design Technology, Customer Care and Social Media Marketing among others.

For 36-year-old Veronica Frimpomaa, this initiative is a timely intervention.

“I am a dressmaker at Ashtown. Some of us have been looking forward to this initiative for a long time. This is going to be a game changer because with the logistical support from the MP, I will be able to expand my business and employ more hands. We thank Dr. NAPO for this programme”.
