President Nana Akufo-Addo broke ground on the Ghana Award House, a five million Ghana Cedis administrative building for the Head of States Awards Scheme, yesterday.
The Ghana Award House complex, when finished, will be a two-story office building with a 200-seat conference room and training facilities to house the National Secretariat of the Head of State Award Scheme.
H.E Nana Akufo-Addo announced at the sod-cutting ceremony that the Ghana Award House will be built for five million cedis (GH5 million), and that it will help drive development, affect, and the successful and efficient distribution of the Award Scheme to all young people in Ghana and beyond.
He also said that “Ghana would be the second African nation, after Kenya, to have its own administrative office, and one of the few countries in the world to do so.”
The building of a GHC5 million Ghana Award House has enraged some Ghanaians, who have taken to social media to express their dissatisfaction.
Many argue that there are more urgent issues in Ghana that GHc5 million might easily address, but the government seems uninterested in such projects..
