Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum, the Member of Parliament for the Bosomtwe constituency, is funding the tertiary fees of 30 selected students from different communities in his constituency.
The students will be pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in different fields on engineering – Mining Engineering, Geological Engineering, Environmental and Safety Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Petroleum Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering and Geomatic Engineering – at the University of Mines and Technology (UMaT).
Accoring to Dr Adutwum, who is also a Deputy Minister for Education, his office has taken care of admission, tuition and accommodation fees of the 30 fresh students until they complete their various courses.
He explained that his decision to fund the students is part of his political resolutions to get, at least, 100 engineers and doctors each from his constituency before leaves 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 added.
Dr Adutwum also indicated that he is also funding other students who are pursuing studies in medicine, nursing, education, and other courses at different tertiary institutions in Ghana and abroad.
“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.”
