Twifo Pepekrom (C/R), Sept. 17, GNA - Mr Joseph Foster Andoh, the District Chief Executive for Twifo-Hemang-Lower-Denkyira, has appealed to parents to give priority to their children's education. Mr Andoh was inaugurating a three-classroom block, office and a store estimated at GH¢55,388.78 for Twifo Pepekrom D/A Primary School. The facility was funded by Twifo-Hemang-Lower-Denkyira District Assembly and the Community Based Rural Development Project (CBRDP).
