President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo Cuts Sod For Anyinam TVET Centre infrastructure
President Akufo-Addo cut the sod in Anyinam for the commencement of construction work on the first of 21 Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET) centres of excellence in Ghana.
The Anyinam TVET centre is being funded by the Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFund), and will be constructed by De Lorenzo S.P.A Milan, an Italian construction company.
It will be recalled that during the President’s 2019 Message on the State of the Nation to Parliament, he stated that “young people have to have options on which career path they choose, and I am glad to announce that all is set for the construction of 21 state-of-the-art Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET) Centres this year.”
President Akufo-Addo reiterated that “for far too long, we have preached about the importance of TVET without doing very much to demonstrate this importance. We send or urge young people to go to poorly equipped TVET centres, and we are surprised that they are not keen.”
The new TVET centres, he assured, would be world class, and attractive to assure young people that they are not being sent to second best options.
