President Akufo-Addo Cuts Sod For GH¢5 Million ‘Ghana Award House’

Published

on

President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has cut the sod for the construction of the 5 million cedis (GH¢ 5 million) Ghana Award House today Wednesday 7th April 2021.

The Ghana Award House will serve as the administrative building for the Head of State Award Scheme.

Speaking at the sod-cutting ceremony, Akufo-Addo disclosed:

“I have always been excited about the work being done by the Award Scheme, and that is why I continue to urge them to ensure that as many young Ghanaians as possible benefit from it. To achieve this ambitious target, a befitting administrative office for the Scheme will be required. The provision of a Ghana Award House, to serve this purpose, is my commitment towards driving the agenda of the Award Scheme,”.

Once completed, the Ghana Award House project will be a two-storey office block, with a two hundred (200) capacity conference room, and training facility designed to house the National Secretariat of the Head of State Award Scheme.

It will be constructed at a cost of five million cedis (GH¢5 million), and it will help drive growth, impact, and the effective and efficient delivery of the Award Scheme to all young people in Ghana and beyond.

“completion of the Ghana Award House project will put Ghana ahead of many of the countries running the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award”, and will mean that Ghana “will be the second country in Africa, after the Presidents’ Award of Kenya, and one of the few countries globally, to have its own administrative office.” The president noted.

He also announced that, in support of the operation of the Award Secretariat, its operational cost will be borne by the Office of the President, under the direct supervision of the Chief of Staff.

“Vehicles are also to be allocated to the Secretariat for its use. In addition to the one-million-cedi contribution to this project, Government pledges to do what it can to ensure that the project is completed in the next thirty-six (36) weeks,” he added.

President Akufo-Addo called on individuals, corporate bodies, especially in the construction industry, to join hands and bring this project to fruition, explaining that they can donate bags of cement, blocks and other building materials in support of this project.

“Together, we can help make this project a reality. I thank all who have contributed consistently towards the success of the Award Scheme. Now is not the time to rest on our oars, but to help realise the vision of an Award Scheme that is truly self-sustaining,” the President added.

Two Ghanaian ladies have been left heartbroken after their family rejected their decision to marry one man.

The twins, only identified as Jane and Janet said they are both deeply in love with a young man who happens to be their ‘childhood’ friend.

According to the devastated ladies, they have become inseparable which makes it difficult to have them married to different men.

They narrated on the SelShow, a Facebook Counselling platform that the young man recently proposed to one of them but they both would love to marry and be with him.

Though the man has accepted the offer to marry the twins, their parents will not allow the marriage come off because “it is an abomination for twins to be married to one man”.

“Sel, we love him together and wants to be with him together as twins. Is it possible for us to marry him or is there anything abominable about our feelings and intentions? If not, then how do we get our parents to understand us, because they have simply made up their minds against this. Please help with your solutions,” the emotionally troubled twins seek advice.

Dear Sel,

We are twins and have a very tight problem that involves emotions and feelings. As twins, we do everything together and it is very difficult for us to do things separately, so we try as much as possible to be together all the time.

Sel, we have this male friend of us we grew up with, went to the same schools with and we all now have good jobs and are still goods friends. We like him so much and we believe it is the same on his part too. Recently, he proposed to one of us, but the two of us love to marry and be with him. Even though he is okay, the problem now is our parents. According to them, it is an abomination for twins to be married to one man.

Sel, we love him together and wants to be with him together as twins. Is it possible for us to marry him or is there anything abominable about our feelings and intentions? If not, then how do we get our parents to understand us, because they have simply made up their minds against this. Please help with your solutions.

Jane & Janet.

Kosovo has elected a new president, Vjosa Osmani-Sadriu, 38, after the former president, Hashim Thaci, vacated the post in November, 2020, after being charged with war crimes.

The 38-year-old reformist and lawyer Vjosa Osmani was approved as president by the country’s parliament in Pristina on Sunday, April 4, with the backing of Prime Minister Albin Kurti and his Vetevendosje (Self-Determination) party.

Osmani received 71 votes from the 82 lawmakers present in the 120-seat parliament.

While the president’s duties are largely ceremonial, Osmani will now be the commander of the country’s armed forces and also serve as one of the country’s top diplomatic representatives.

The inauguration of Vjosa Osmani-Sadriu as the President of the Republic of Kosovo took place Tuesday, April 6, in Pristina, Kosovo, marking the start of her five-year term in the office.
