“Also over 200 Persons with Disabilities have received farm inputs, sheep, deep freezers and cash to support their businesses,” she added.
Hajia Seidu noted that in the educational sector, the Free Senior High School (SHS) programme has been one of the major projects of the government that has earned President Akufo-Addo international recognition, adding “the number of schools under the Ghana School Feeding Programme has risen from 24 schools in the then Savelugu/Nanton District to 40 in the now Savelugu Municipality.”
