DCE Cries Over Teenage Pregnancies
The Chief Executive of Bosomtwe District, Joseph Assuming, is sad about the ascendancy in reported cases of teenage pregnancies in the country.
According to him, the rise in teenage pregnancies has resulted in several school-going girls dropping out of school.
He has, therefore, called for greater efforts from the various stakeholders in educating the children on how to stay away from pre-marital sex.
The Bosomtwe DCE warned that if the necessary actions were not taken now, a lot of school-going girls would be impregnated and become dropouts.
He made the remarks when the Deputy Local Government Minister, Collins Ntim, visited his district as part of his Ashanti Regional tour.
Assuming applauded the minister for taking time out of his tight schedule to visit the districts and see things for himself.
He said poor roads remained a major problem in the district, noted that residents in the district want some of the roads in the area to be asphalted to alleviate their plight.
