The resource center has two big conference rooms with offices and washrooms. The beautifully adorn structure is big enough to take over 100 people at the same time. With two big conference centres, there is room for two separate conferences happening in the facility concurrently.
Akpinifia Okpekpewuokpe Dagadu IX together with some of his chiefs and elders were handed over the keys to the building. The paramount chief of the great kingdom, the Akpini state, Akpinifia Okpekpewuokpe Dagadu IX, lauded the project and the purpose for which it is built. He persistently stated that heroes of the community needs to be recognized and duly praised as this encourages them to do more or, serves as motivation for others to emulate. He praised Hon. Dela Sowah for some of her enlisted projects carried out in the constituency and those yet to see the light of day.
In an exclusive interview with the Member of Parliament of the area, Hon. Dela Sowah by icreategh news team, she recounted how the chiefdom needs a new structure inline with time to supplement the already existing one which is dilapidated. “The resource center is for the chiefs to be holding their meetings” she said.
When asked of the institution that sponsored the project, she was emphatic and stated without hesitation that “the project is sponsored largely by the GNPC, we’ve made some modifications for which other sponsors paid for”.
Hon. Dela Sowah further mentioned some projects that funds has already been approved for. She stated that some kilometers of roads in the Kpando township and the bridges at both Gbefi on the Aflabo and Kudzra on the Dayi river respectively will be constructed.

The modern in-land port will have offices, storage facilities, restrooms etc. According to the MP, plans are far advanced to kick start these projects in the next quarter as loans has already been approved and disbursements will be done soon.
When asked why she would still contest for the seat in the coming elections, she related parliament to the school where one needs to undergo training and graduate from one level to the other. One learns more as they progress to the next level. “Parliament invest in us, they train us, they give us training, they give us opportunities, privileges and we learn the parliamentary duties and stuffs and you get better with the years and so, as you grow in parliament, then you are exposed to more opportunities that will benefit your people” she explained.
She reiterated that the longer you stay, the more experience you become and so are the opportunities available to your constituency. She further explained that it will be retrogressive changing the seat at a point where the seat is almost there, “in the front”.
Speaking of other projects she championed to see the Akpini state great, she mentioned her intervention remedial classes that helped lots of students to get admission into the university. She also mentioned how Kpando has been the only constituency to have hundred percent unprecedented school feeding coverage. Health insurance building, traffic light at Aloyi and works done at the Municipal Assembly are some of the few projects she championed to bring joy and comfort to her people. Even though she has more to show, this are but few to mention.
The people of Kpando more especially, the youth are in high hopes that the Akpini State is back and they are strongly behind the greatest of the greatest King Akpinifia Okpekpewuokpe Dagadu IX to lead them to see this change. It is no doubt that Kpando is indeed back to claim it’s lost glory.
