A multi-million Information, Communication and Technology (ICT) centre made up of 25 computers with an internet facility, has been inaugurated at Asasetre in the Ellembelle District of the Western Region.

The facility, which was established at the cost of GH¢ 60,000.00, has a library stuffed with books on Mathematics, English, ICT among other subjects to assist students in their research work and improve their academic life.

This brings to a total of two, the number of ICT centres solely sponsored by the Member of Parliament (MP) for Ellembelle, Mr Emmanuel Armah-Kofi Buah in the last two years.

Inaugurating the facility, the Western Regional Director of Education, Mrs Rebecca Affiba Dadzie said in order for Ghana to march the global competition, ICT knowledge was essential to the educational growth of students.

She appealed to the community to demonstrate the culture of maintenance so that posterity would also benefit from the facility.

The Omanhene of Nsien Traditional Area, Awulae Agyavi Kwame III appealed to parents to encourage their children to patronise the centre in order gain expertise in ICT.

Mr Buah, who doubles as the Deputy Minister of Energy, said he was committed to give his constituents the best education to take up the emerging opportunities on the job market.

The MP says he has sponsored the tuition of 140 students in English, Mathematics and Science at the cost of GH¢ 20,000 to enable them re-sit the West African Senior School Certificate Examination.

Mr Buah called on the students to learn hard to make the establishment of the facility meaningful.
