Member of Parliament for Ho West Constituency in the Volta Region, Emmanuel Kwasi Bedzrah has led a delegation to donate office equipment to the Paramount Chief of Anfoeta, Togbe Kwasi Drah VII.

The office equipment are made up of office desks with swivel chairs, two desktop computers and a printer to help them meet the necessary requirement.

While giving a brief history on the rich traditional background of Anfoeta, Togbe Kwasi Drah VII noted, “we have been under the Asogli Traditional Council for many years and it has its own pros and cons, but now, if we successfully gain our independence we will be able to take care of our own issues without stepping on anyone’s foot.”

He further indicated that, “the Volta Regional House of Chiefs recently came to inspect what we have before asking to be independent and were shocked to see our facilities. This is why we’re thankful to our MP for his continues assistance in making this a reality.”

Touching on the development of the area, Togbe Kwasi Drah VII lauded the MP whiles recounting how they sought the help of Hon Bedzrah to construct a technical school in the area. Today, the school is completed with all the necessary facilities. He, however, noted with regret that all efforts to get the school absorbed into the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Council has proven futile.

The chief expressed his frustration when he said, “this government is already in its 6th year and even after writing tens of letters, we’re still waiting for them to officially give us the TVET status. Our facilities here can even be equated to that of Technical Universities so I don’t know the difficulty in granting us the status of a senior high technical school for our children to benefit from.”

The MP commended the Paramount chief, sub-chiefs and people of the Anfoeta Traditional Area for their quality leadership that has resulted in absolute peace, which he noted was a prerequisite for development of every community.

He also assured them of his continues support and to continually appeal to the Ministry of Education to expedite action in absorbing the Weto Community Technical School into the GES/TVET Mainstream or re-establish it as a Modern IT hub where computer courses could run.

Anfoeta Traditional Council will be the 17th Traditional Area within the Ho West District. It is constituted by a number of individual communities including Tsebi, Gbogame, Wadamaxe and Zongo and it is located at the central part of the district.
