This got a development Activist known as Adolf Nomo furious about his plan for Education in yilo Krobo Municipality.
According to Ghanaian Ex British soldier and Educationist the M.P should come out with a strategic plan which will move the Education in Yilo Krobo foward.
He revealed that the MP’s plan for Education wont help them and it will still be like what their former MP lawyer Amoatey started which didn’t yield results.
He lamented that M.P for bosomtwe Who double as Eduction minister has awarded scholarships to 100 students to study engineering and that’s a Plan.
So what’s stopping the M.P for coming out with his plan that under his first 4 years such as i will like to get 20 doctors from yilo Krobo, 40 Engineers, 50 nurses etc.
Setting up an award scheme for teachers to boost their morale to work harder as AsanteHene have been doing for teachers over a decade now.

Setting up Educational trust fund and scholarship for students. He said some of them will surely donate a reasonable amount every month to help Education in the Municipality.
Adolf Nomo said Mr Albert Nyarko’s plan is a lazy type and he needs to come back with a better plan because his colleagues like okudzeto Ablakwa are doing marvelous works by helping students in their contuency to study in higher education levels and Apprenticeship.
This got MP angry where he attacked him with a whole lot of insults on Facebook
Adolf Nomo reiterated that if what he said doesn’t make sense then the M.P should come out with a visionary plan because he has gotten to a stage in life where insult and threats doesn’t scare him anymore.
The normal extra classes that they do only happens in Somanya and it onlyBenefits few students there. All the teachers in the Municipality do not get involved. Students in the villages within the Municipality do not benefit.
They only do it to win votes.
He does not even consult the teachers associations there before doing that.
They normally lie about giving a number of people Schorlaships just to win votes. No evidence at all.
This time he should create a fund make the fund public. Tell us how much he puts in the fund monthly. Ask us the citizens to also pay into the fund to support. I will pay money into it he said.
Adding that he said this will help to achieve his vision. For example a vision of getting a number of engineers, doctors, nurses etc in his constituency within his first term. The fund should be used for that vision.
Infrastructure development, he should stop throwing dust into our eye that he would provide infrastructure with is money.
All he can do is to use his common fund. All we want him to do is to keep the bombarding the assembly/government for us. He should also go and lobby for help. Make the plea public as well to make Yilo Krobo great.
