Social media reactions to the Ghana Award House project
There have been mixed reactions to the announcement of a building
of a Ghana Award House project as a section of Ghanaians have
demanded to know its relevance.
President Akufo-Addo cut the sod for the construction of the
¢5 million Ghana Award House, a new administrative building for
the Head of State Award Scheme.
When completed, the Ghana Award House project will be a two-storey
office block, with a 200 capacity conference room, and training facility
designed to house the National Secretariat of the Head of State Award Scheme.
Speaking at the sod-cutting ceremony, President Akufo-Addo explained that
since its inception in 1967, the Head of State Award Scheme has challenged
and touched the lives of many young Ghanaians, with some 750,000 young
people participating and benefitting from the Scheme.

- Ghana needs 100,000 housing units annually
However, a section of Ghanaians has said the initiative cannot be a top
priority now, looking at the challenges the country finds itself in.
They have argued there are more pressing needs of the Ghanaian such as
hospitals, beds, construction of schools, among others than this project.
