NEW JUABEN NORTH MUNICIPAL ASSEMBLY RESTORE PALM OIL PLANT AT ASIKASU
The New Juaben North Municipal Assembly has handed over a repaired palm oil processor to the residents of Asikasu. The machine which was initially donated by an NGO, broke down four years ago.
Hon. Comfort Asante, in her speech was very glad to see the machine fixed and ready to work again and reassured the residents that the Assembly would continue to provide assistance to promote the economic welfare of the community.

He pledged his outfit commitment in ensuring farmers are well resourced to produce more palm oil for both local and international market.
Hon. Benjamin Larbo, the assembly member for Asikasu on behalf of the residents expressed their profound gratitude to MCE and the Assembly. He therefore promised that maintenance of the plant will be his paramount.
