Speaking to this reporter, MP for Kwadaso and initiator of the project, Dr S.K Nuamah expressed delight at the impact of the training project.

He was hopeful that the first batch of trainees would turn out to put the skills they acquired at the school to good use.

This, he noted would offer them self-created jobs as well as avenues for employment of others when they succeed in undertaking the projects they aim to carry out.

Hon Nuamah asked the youth in the locality who are unemployed to take up courses at the training institute just as the first and second batches have done so that they can make their lives count for the Kwadaso community as well as their families.

‘’I am glad that 60 persons in this community who took advantage of the program at the training institute have passed out and the second batch about to do so and I know with skills acquisition the youth in Kwadaso would soon become the most resourceful people in the whole of Ashanti and in Ghana as a whole’’, Dr Nuamah noted.
