Ghana: Better Ghana Projects Photo Exhibition Opens in Cape Coast

A photo exhibition of some projects initiated and completed from 2009 to 2012, ranging from health, education and energy, to roads among others.

The exhibition was done by Thomas Fynn, owner of Professional Photo Exhibition Builders, at Cape Coast Jubilee Park on Saturday.

According to Fynn, his exhibition contained over 2,800 projects across the country, and that the exhibition would take place in all the regional capitals, although time was very limited.

Fynn told reporters that he spent about GH¢20,000 to print out the pictures.

Speaking at the opening of the exhibition, the Central Regional Minister, Mrs. Ama Benyiwa Doe, asked residents in the region to patronise the exhibition, so as to enable them know the achievements of the government within the four years.

She said the NDC government had focused on rural development as a way of bridging the gap between the rural and urban areas.

"I am very proud of NDC achievements within the four years, and it makes sense when you go to the people and ask for another four years," she pointed out.

The occasion coincided with the one year anniversary celebration of the Mfantsiman Girls Old Students Association of the Central Region, during which the minister addressed the members.

She admonished them to do well to help more girls in the region get to the classroom, adding that the girl child education was best antidote to poverty reduction in the area.

She also urged them to ensure peace before, during and after the December 7 polls to protect Ghana's enviable democratic governance.

The leader of the association, Ms Vivian Etru, who doubles as the Metropolitan Education Director, expressed gratitude to the Minister for responding to their invitation, and promised to do their best to help the development of girl child education in the Central Region.
