MP bemoans poor state of Central Region

The Member of Parliament (MP) for Gomoa Central, Rachel Nana Adwoa Apoh has lamented recent statistical report which showed that the Central Region is the second  poorest region in the nation. 
 
The Ghanaian hospitality sector which is known world-wide is inseparable during festive occasions like Christmas where the wherewithal and the less endowed try to be part of the celebration, a heterogeneous societal norm which has been endorsed by the Mrs. Rachael Apoh Opoku.
 
Mrs. Opoku was so passionate about the welfare of the widows and said that “I think it is imperative that the society and well meaning individuals extend a helping hand to the widows as their husbands are no longer existing and always put a smile on their faces”.
 
Mrs. Rachel Apoh marked the occasion with widows giving them gifts  and encouraging them to be strong, steadfast and industrious to realize their aspirations in life.
 
Apoh said “my constituency was initially enlisted as part of the beneficiaries of the livelihood empowerment assistantship program (LEAP) but later when the benefit allotment came, her constituency was strucked out with no apparent reason”.
 
According to her she has written several letters to the gender ministry to include her district but to no avail.
 
Mrs. Rachael Apoh Opoku is therefore appealing to the president of the land John Dramani Mahama to include the Gomoa Central district in the LEAP project to alleviate the poverty in the area.
