Mr. Ernest Kofi Yakah, the Member of Parliament for New Edubiase is delighted of indications from government and the Ghana Investment Fund for Electronic Communications, GIFEC of activating information communication centres that have been completed but are yet to be fixed with computers and other facilities in various parts of the country.

The MP who said he was instrumental in lobbying then minister of Communication, Mr. Harruna Iddrisu in getting the ICT centre to built in the constituency said he always looked forward to when the facility would be put to use for the benefits of residents in the area.

The structure has since been completed and commissioned but supply of computers has delayed. But with the announcement that computers would be ready for all those ICT centres yet to be fully operational the MP is glad his vision of his constituents not being left behind in ICT skills would be achieved.

The Ghana Investment Fund for Electronic Communications was set up to among other things promote ICT in the most deprived communities and other sectors of the economy. It is engaged in carrying out ICT services in ‘security services, e-Learning, common communication facilities, the Last Mile Initiative and the School Connectivity projects.’

The rest are the e-Health, ICT Capacity building, Community Information, School Connectivity, Rural Pay Phone, Easy Business, Post Office Connectivity, the e-Fishing, the Public Education Electromagnetic Field exposure and Health and the Library Connectivity Projects.
