Some District Chief Executives in the Eastern Region last Friday, donated 100 bags of cement to the Akyease Jungle Welfare School.
This was to aid the school to complete its project on time and give access to many people to undertake training programs there.
Mr Richmond Amponsah Agyabeng, DCE for Birem South district disclosed this to Citi News in an exclusive interview.
Explaining how they got to donate the building materials to the school, Mr Agyabeng narrated that the group numbering 28 and being led by himself decided to embark on a training exercise at the school upon the recommendations made by the regional minister.
He said the group including DCE’s from Birem South, Suhum Municipality, Juaben North and South, Akyeamansa and Abuakwa North and South were taking through series of topics such as self-discipline, time management, team work and bonding, stress management and effective relationship between management and stafff.
“We were also taking through some physical exercises spanning from jumping of walls to so many other things”, he said.
The man who doubles as the Dean for DCE’s in the Eastern region observed that the purpose of the exercise was to “equip us to effectively to manage our respective jurisdictions as DCE’s”.
Mr Agyabeng stated that he and his colleagues upon the exercise, were made to dress in military uniforms.
“The practice is to enable the training instructors give commands to the trainees irrespective of their social status” he opined.
He was however worried about the interpretations some Ghanaians gave to their harmless training after pictures of it popped up on the internet.
He said there’s been rumors that he and his colleagues were being trained by the government to fight the biggest opposition party, thus the National Democratic Congress as a rebuttal to Ex-president Mahama’s “boot for boot” comment on the Ayawaso by-election impasse.
Mr Agyabeng said people should disregard those rumors because they were not there for that purpose.
He testified about the good training experience at the Jungle Welfare and called on every Ghanaian who needs some form of training for their employees, colleagues or themselves to visit the school.
