This morning, I bid farewell to 30 students from Bosomtwe who are on their way to University of Mines and Technology (UMaT) at Tarkwa. They are going to pursue various courses in Engineering fully funded by me.
The excitement on their faces and that of the parents who had assembled in front of my Constituency Office building was palpable.
Fees paid, accommodation provided and a bus ready to convey them to Tarkwa, I encouraged them to aim high, study hard, read wide and pursue success.
My vision of ensuring that Bosomtwe gets 100 engineers within the next ten years is on course."
