Deputy Education Minister Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum is sponsoring thirty engineering students from the Bosomtwe constituency at the University of Mines and Technology (UMaT), Tarkwa, in the next academic year.

According to Dr Adutwum, who has also retained his seat as Member of Parliament for the constituency, the gesture is in line with his long-held objective to obtain 100 engineers and doctors each from the constituency before he leaves Parliament.

“My office has taken care of admission, tuition and accommodation of these 30 fresh students until they complete their various courses.

“This feat is part of (an already started) strategies and processes for the fulfillment of one of my political resolutions: to get, at least, 100 engineers and doctors each from my constituency by the time I leave office as MP. It is also a way to thank the Lord for how far He has brought me, looking at my story of how I nearly could not go to Secondary school because of poverty; and to also help others that might not have the opportunity to realize their dreams and potentials if they are not given a helping hand,” he announced on Facebook.

He added: “Apart from these thirty freshly admitted, soon-to-be UMaT-trained future engineers, there are other students pursuing medicine, engineering, education, nursing and other courses at different levels of tertiary education, both local and abroad, courtesy my office”.

Below are details of the Facebook post by the deputy minister
