OUR MANIFESTO: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Member of Parliament for Sunyani East Constituency in the Bono Region, Kwasi Ameyaw-Cheremeh, has implored parents to take advantage of the numerous educational interventions to secure a brighter future for their children.
At the inauguration of three different classroom blocks with ancillary facilities at Adidaase, Atuahenekrom, and Abesim, the MP said many opportunities abound and it is through education that societal problems can be solved. He said his desire as a politician is to ease the challenges of his people.
“There is no reason why government introduced the Free SHS than to equip our children with the skills and knowledge to become better citizens in the future. I ask that we take these interventions seriously so we reap the benefits together,” he stated.

Yvonne Nelson says Mahama ended dumsor
Ghanaian actress, Yvonne Nelson, has said former president John Mahama was the one who fixed dumsor before exiting power in 2016. Yvonne, known for her bold political utterances, was reacting to a post she made on a tweeter in which a user apparently misunderstood her.
According to the user by the name Antaru Mashud, Yvonne fought for Akufo-Addo to come to power in 2016 only for Ghanaians to suffer. Meanwhile, shortly after Yvonne led that vigil against Mahama, she turned around to commend him for the improvement in the power supply.
