The group also commended Nana Awiti Adomako the Nfodwoasehene for donating 10 acres of land for the construction of the Regional Education Office and other facilities.
“We are eternally grateful to President Akufo Addo, the Bono East Regional Coordinating Council and the Regional Minister for ensuring that Nkoronza has its fair share of development in the newly created region. The President during the launch of the new region stated that the various public institutions that will be built will not be located in just one area and that it will be spread across the whole region. The siting of the Education Office is proof that in indeed the President is a man of his own words. We also single out our chief who values education so much for praise for his generous donation of a vast piece of land for the construction of the offices.”
