Minister commissions ITC centre for Pantang-Village

Dr Omane BoamahDr Edward Omane Boamah, the Minister of Communications, on Monday commissioned a Community ICT Centre for residents of the Pantang-Village.

The centre was built by the La-Nkwantanang-Madina Municipal Assembly in partnership with the Ministry of Communications, Huawei Technologies (Gh) and SA Limited.

It has 19 fully equipped computer laboratories with a stationed server, broadband and wireless connectivity.

Dr Omane Boamah said the Government would continue to deliver quality infrastructure for communities in the country and called on Ghanaians to support it in its efforts.

He said his outfit would arrange and train experts to handle the ICT Centre so that it functioned effectively.

He, therefore, cautioned the managers of the centre to charge moderate fees so that a lot of the people could patronize it.

Dr Omane Boamah said another centre would be built at Danfa, a suburb of Accra, since most medical doctors from the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital carry their rural practical training in that area so as to have access to the facility for their research work.

The Member of Parliament for Madina Constituency, Alhaji Amadu Sorogoh, expressed gratitude to the assemblyman and presiding member of the area for ensuring the completion of the project.

He pleaded with the chiefs and people of the area to maintain the ICT Centre to benefit the entire community.

Mr Franklyn Anku, the Municipal Chief Executive of La-Nkwantanang-Madina Municipal Assembly, said the facility would support teaching and learning for schools in the area and called on the youth to take advantage of the facility.

He assured the Minister of Communications that they would put the facility to good use.

The occasion was chaired by the Chief of Pantang-Village, Nii Okang Okoadji I, who pleaded with the Government to tar the roads in the area to enhance business activities. GNA
