ABOUT TWO hundred brilliant Ghanaian students are currently being trained as medical doctors in Cuba, it has officially been announced.

The lucky students, who were picked from all over the country based on their qualification, are benefiting from the GNPC Foundation largesse.

Dominic Eduah, the Executive Director of GNPC Foundation, making the disclosure, said his outfit is playing key roles to boost human resource.

“Through the sponsorship of the GNPC Foundation about 200 lucky Ghanaian students are currently being trained as medical doctors in far away Cuba.

“These people, when they complete their programmes and become qualified medical doctors, would help in the healthcare sector in Ghana”, he said.

Dominic Eduah was speaking to newsmen during the official technical handing over of the Konadu Yiadom Astro Turf Park in Kumasi, recently.

Located in the Manhyia South Constituency, the plush-looking Konadu Yiadom Park project was the brainchild of the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.

Dominic Eduah said the GNPC Foundation, five years ago, decided to spread monies accrued from the country’s oil resources to help improve human lives.

“The GNPC Foundation now operates in all the 16 regions in the country under our ‘Impacting lives’ programme”, he announced, attracting wild applause.

According to him, the GNPC Foundation’s target areas include education, sports infrastructure and environment and social amenities, among others.

Dominic Eduah also announced that since 2018, the GNPC Foundation has given a staggering 6000 local scholarships to beneficiary students at tertiary level.

In addition, he announced that his outfit has also given scholarships to over 300 brilliant Ghanaian students, who are studying abroad free of change.

In the area of sports infrastructure, he said about 30 new astro turf pitches, including the Konadu Yiadom Park, have been constructed across the country.

Dominic Eduah lauded Otumfuo and Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh aka ‘Napo’, MP for Manhyia South, for playing roles to make the Konadu Yiadom Park a reality.
