They will also emboss them the assembly’s initials to prevent them from selling it out. She said anyone who may buy any equipment from beneficiary will be prosecuted.
The beneficiaries expressed their gratitude to the New Patriotic Party government and the assembly for coming to their aid with business start up equipment to better their lives. They recounted some good works of the government and call on Ghanaians to vote massively for the government to retain power so they can continue to benefit from the policy.
