An ICT centre and a -16 seater water closet toilet facility has been built at Nkroful, the birthplace of Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah, first President of Ghana.

The Member of Parliament (MP) for Ellembelle, Mr Emmanuel Armah-Kofi Buah commissioned the project.

This brings to three, the number of ICT centres the MP has built for the District since he took the seat in January 2009.

Inaugurating the facility, Mr Buah, who is also the Minister for Energy and Petroleum Resources, said it was his major pre-occupation to make ICT education a priority in the District to improve teaching, learning and research work.

He asked the people especially school children to patronize the centre to stay abreast with global issues and contribute meaningfully to national issues.

Mr Daniel K. Eshun, District Chief Executive (DCE) for Ellembelle, said the Assembly plans to put up another toilet facility and a community center for the community.

He said an ICT committee will soon be set up to have an oversight responsibility for all ICT centers in the District to ensure that they are put to good use.

Rev Mrs Elizabeth Akuoko, District Director of Education, lauded the MP for his commitment to prioritize education in the District and asked school children to patronize the center to improve standards in education in the area.

Chief of Nkroful, Nana Kwasi Kwutia thanked the MP and the DCE for the facility and urged teachers, school children and the entire community to put the facility to good use.
