Akufo Addo lauds Dan Botwe
Dan Kwaku Botwe, Minister of Regional Reorganization and Development has been tipped as one of the best performing ministers of the Akufo-Addo administration by the President.
The President’s praise is premised on his unrelenting efforts towards the creation of new regions.
The president who could not hide his admiration for the job done in respect of the government’s drive towards the new region creation, labeled him as one of the best performing Ministers in his government.
He said, Mr Botwe’s Ministry assigned to facilitate the constitutional processes for the creation of additional regions had performed creditably and deserved praise.
This was when he interacted with the ‘Coalition of Bono Chiefs’- spearheading efforts at getting a separate region carved out of Brong-Ahafo and to be known as ‘Bono East Region’, at Akonkonti-Odumase in Nkoranza North District.
President Akufo-Addo is in Brong-Ahafo for a three-day official visit to engage with the chiefs and people and to get to know their felt-needs.
He was accompanied by Ministers of State and Members of Parliament (MPs) including Mr. Dan Botwe.
He told the ‘Coalition’ to recognise and appreciate the work done by the sector Minister.
President Akufo-Addo said he was grateful for the rousing welcome given him by the people and said that was indicative of their readiness and unswerving commitment to support his government to build a society that worked for everybody.
He repeated that his Administration would keep faith with Ghanaians and would never betray their trust.
Nana Okofo Agyepong III, acting President of the Nkoranza Traditional Council, praised the government for the implementation of the free Senior High School policy and the ‘Planting for Food and Jobs (PFJs)’ programme.
The chief expressed the optimism that the government would implement its One-District-One-Factory policy to create job opportunities and wealth for the people.
