The Member of Parliament for Tano South Constituency, Hon.

Hon Sekyere told the delegates that the government is putting in place measures to get the teeming youth who are unemployed to get jobs to improve their living conditions and hinted that government is committed to extend electricity supply to the rural areas.
On the Planting for Food and Jobs Programme, Hon Sekyere indicated that interventions have been put in place by government to supply seeds and seedlings free of charge to the farmers and also to distribute fertilisers at subsidized prices to all districts for purchase.
Hon. Sekyere on his part said he has purchased one thousand, five hundred (1500) bags of fertilisers for distribution to needy farmers in the constituency free of charge to supplement their efforts in acquiring some of the fertilisers.
