Anultra-modern library complex started by SSNIT for use by the Nima-Maamobi community has been completed and ready for inauguration.
It was started in 2015/2016 atKawokudi around the Gold House Junction in the Greater Accra Region before the current administration took over in 2017.
Our investigative reporterAjarfor gathered that the project, which is due for public use was initiated by the former Director-General (D-G) of the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) MrErnest Thompson as part of SSNIT’s 50th Anniversary’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in October 2015.
The land on which the project was built isowned by the Ghana Library Board after it was abandonedfor many years.
