The post reads:
“I, Hon. Kofi Adade, the assembly member for the Dadease Electoral Area has supported my people in many ways of development, especially in the areas of health and education.
In the year 2012, the people of Kumawu Dadease were suffering from Hepatitis B which was killing them and I spoke to some doctors who came and assisted them with screening and medication.
Currently, the Kumawu-Dadease Electoral Area is free from the Killer disease – Hepatitis B.
In 2014, I provided 17 computers to Dadease Agric Senior High School and 20 laptops to Dadease basic schools to improve technological education in the community.
I also support the pupils with learning materials which include mathematical sets, pens, pencils, chop boxes, exercise books and many other materials to assist parents in caring for their children as part of improving education in the area.
I also lobbied and supported the community in getting electricity meters to prevent overloading of meters.
This is just to mention but a few. I wish to encourage everyone to help his or community in every aspect of his strength.
