The Ghana scholarship Secretariat, through the Atwima Mponua District Assembly, has given 59 Tertiary students who applied to them for financial assistance scholarships to the tune of GHc60,869.
Speaking at the gathering, Williams Darko gave an account of the stewardship of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on his performance in the education sector.
He stated that “the District Assembly has awarded scholarships to 343 students since 2017″ adding that “the Member of Parliament, Isaac Asiamah has also awarded Scholarships to 287 Tertiary students”.
