Ben Dotsei Malor, a former press secretary to former Ghana president, John Mahama, has shared a video updating the rest of the world on a library and an ICT lab he is putting up in his Ohawu.
A library and computer complex in Ohawu in the Volta region is being built by a former presidential press secretary under the erstwhile John Mahama administration, Ben Dotsei Malor.
Malor, who is now a chief editor at the United Nations in charge of news dailies, is from Ohawu and has committed to giving back to his hometown in a rather inspiring development.
YEN.com.gh sighted on Malor’s Facebook page a post on Friday, June 21, 2019 captioned: “IN THE VILLAGE, OHAWU - FINISHING TOUCHES: We are on course, pressing on, and giving thanks. The Library and Computer Complex of Ohawu is almost ready to be commissioned. WE ARE GRATEFUL.”
In an accompanying video, the former government spokesperson said the school was opening on Monday, June 24.
He continues in the video: This van brought computers and books this morning and you can see some of the little kids from the school. That’s the centre (ICT) in the background. We are doing the finishing touches.
Malor sell mentioned that Matilda Amissah-Arthur, the wife of former and now deceased vice-president, Kwesi Amissah-Arthur is also a benefactor of the project.
Of the former second lady Malor added: “She got up early this morning and with many of the items she’s providing, the books, she’s inside (the ICT centre).”
Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported how a Kenyan friend of Malor contributed her widow’s mite to the project.
Malor had put out a post about how much he needed to complete an ICT lab for a basic school in his hometown of Ohawu.
The former press secretary to John Mahama took to Facebook to tell the story of Kenyan Kheiro Abdi, who is also apparently Mrs Kingsley-Nyinah.
It would seem she had only called on Malor for coffee in New York but she had more in mind. Abdi donated an unspecified amount to the project, much to the happiness of Malor.
