Communication Minister, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful has cut the sod for the construction of 30 state-of-the-art Community Information Centres (CICs) at Akyem Asuom in the Eastern Region.
The CICs, which will be built across the country, are an initiative of the Ghana Investment Fund for Electronic Communication (GIFEC).
They will serve as learning centres for the public and students and enable them to access various e-learning tools and platforms even if they do not have internet at home.
Mrs Owusu-Ekuful called on District Assemblies, MPs, public-spirited individuals and corporate organisations to partner the government through GIFEC to ensure that every under-served and unserved community in the country becomes part of the digital society.
She expressed gratitude for the support from Osaberima Ofosuhene Apenteng II (Asuom Hene) and his traditional leaders, Mr Seth Antwi Boasiako (MCE, Kwaebibrem Municipal Assembly) and Mr Abraham Kofi Asante (GIFEC Administrator) in making the project a reality.
