I’ll ensure the completion of the A/R Press Center- Simon Osei-Mensah
The Ashanti Regional Minsiter Nominee, Simon Osei-Mensah has promised to ensure the completion of the Ashanti Regional Press Resource Centre started by the National Democratic Government.
Under Hon Eric Opoku’s leadership, the NDC government in 2013 started the construction of a state-of-the-art Press Resource Centre for the Ashanti GJA following a request made by then Regional Chairman of the Association, Listowell Yesu Bukarson, at the beginning of the year.
The project, valued at GH¢583,229.08 was expected to have completed in February 2014, however it got stalled at the roofing level.
Answering a question posed by Hon Eric Opoku Tuesday [February 14, 2017] on whether the nominee would ensure the completion of the project, Mr. Osei-Mensah told the Vetting Committee he would not hesitate at all to seeing to the completion of the project if given the nod by parliament.
“Those who know me very well know me to be somebody who is media friendly” as such he will not “hesitate at all to ensure that that project is completed to the benefit of Ashanti Region and Ghana as a whole.”
The Press Center once completed will be well resourced with journalistic materials expected to aid journalists in the region with their research work in order to ease challenges associated with the work.
