Mr Joseph Kwadwo Ofori, Member of Parliament (MP) for Akan has said government's "Better Ghana" agenda would succeed if the people allowed it to lay a sound foundation for rapid economic development.

He said as daunting as the task is government has positioned itself to surmount the challenges in order to deliver on its promises and urged the people to exercise patience.

Mr Ofori, who spoke to the GNA in an interview, said he would continue to develop the human resource base of his constituency and that within nine months as MP he had sponsored 51 students worth GHc 18,000 to pursue educational programmes.

Mr Ofori said 42 beneficiaries were pursuing university and other tertiary programmes, five in senior high school with the rest into information communication technology studies with funding from his share of the District Assemblies Common Fund and HIPC fund.

He said part of his share of the HIPC and Ghana Education Trust funds had been committed to cladding a three six-unit classroom blocks including that of Kadjebi E. P. and Asato Roman Catholic Primary schools. That of Pampawie would be tackled soon.

On provision of electricity, the Akan MP said 25 communities in the Kadjebi District had been prioritised to benefit under the national electrification project by the Ministry of Energy.

Mr Ofori said the eastern corridor road network running through Asikuma-Hohoe-Kadjebi-Damanko would soon be awarded on contract.

He said feeder roads and bridges in the Constituency would receive facelift including a bridge on River Asukawkaw to link Dodo-Fie to Dodo-Bethel and create accessibility to other cocoa growing areas.
