Outspoken Member of Parliament for Assin North, Kennedy Agyepong has supported the Dakpema Education Fund with Gh10, 000 cedis.

The main opposition New Patriotic Party MP also pledged to contribute the same amount annually to the Fund to enable the Chief of Tamale, Naa Dakpema Dawuni Alhassan achieve his aim of assisting brilliant but needy students to acquire higher academic laurels.

Additionally, he promised to build two factories in Tamale to reduce the high rate of youth unemployment in the area.
The Assin North MP recognised youth unemployment as the major cause of political and chieftaincy upheavals in the north, hence his decision to build the two factories in Tamale.

Hon. Agyepong made the promise during a courtesy call on the Chief of Tamale over the weekend.

The visit was part of his campaign tour of the northern region ahead of the NPP Flag bearer, Nana Akufo Addo’s scheduled visit to the northern region on December 5.

He appealed to residents of the area to attract more investors to the entire northern region through peaceful co-existence.

Naa Dakpema Dawuni Alhassan, the Tamale Chief commended Hon. Agyepong for his vision for the north.

He implored the youth to be inspired by the Assin North MP’s humanitarian services and rise up to the challenge of global competitiveness.

Naa Dakpema promised to later honour Hon. Agyepong with a chieftaincy title in February 2012.

Hon. Agyepong later addressed NPP youth groups in the Tamale Metropolis including the University for Development Chapter of the Tertiary Education Students Confederacy of the NPP and the Danquah Ladies.
