The vision of the MP for his Constituency, is to help reduce poverty and improve livelihood through Empowerment, Entrepreneurship and Sustainable Development. As part of measures to empower and help reduce unemployment in his constituency, the Cape Coast North Member of Parliament initiated a programme called "Empowerment Initiative'.
Under this initiative Dr. Minta Nyarku intends to provide skills training for as many people as possible willing to upgrade their skills within his Constituency.
Under the first phase of the initiative, 55 persons within the Essuerkyir Community benefited from the programme. This week, ninety-seven (97) people within the Kakomdo Community have equally benefited from the second phase of the initiative. They were taken through skills training including skills acquisition in Weedicide production, Banana Ice Cream, bio digester construction, Mushroom Farming, 3D and 5D Epoxy, Body Cream, Brown Sugar, Liquid Soap etc
Seth Acheampong of DOFAS Construction who is the chief trainer, collaborating with the Cape Coast North MP to provide the skills training said, he was very much elated at the enthusiasm the participants exhibited during the training programme and thanked the MP for such an effort and continuous support.
The Cape Coast North Constituency Member of Parliament, affectionately called Ragga expressed his appreciation to the participants for taking advantage of his Empowerment Initiative.
"I'm supporting you to support yourselves. Once people are empowered, they are able to support their families, others and the constituency at large".
"I hope and pray all of you would be able to use the skills acquired to better yourselves and contribute meaningfully to the development of the constituency, Central Region and Ghana".
Most of participants who had completed their skills training expressed their appreciation and thanked their Member of Parliament for the honour and opportunity.
