The Nungua Traditional Council recently granted 10 acres piece of land to Top Kings Innovations, for the construction of the Borteymanm TVET institution. The technical and vocational education and training institute project is expected to be completed within a period of 12 months.
At a sod-cutting ceremony to kick off construction, Professor Odaifio Welentsi, the Paramount Chief of Nungua, praised the real estate company for taking the effort to locate the institution in Nungua and urged the youth to join.

Prof. Welentsi recommended parents enroll their kids in school. Instead of keeping them at home so that they can graduate with marketable, entrepreneurial, and vocational skills and knowledge.
He asserted that such a facility would significantly contribute to the education of more local youngsters. And following their graduation, would help them become independent adults.

The Paramount Chief voiced worry over the fact that some real estate investors were using Nungua properties for their operations for several years without making any obvious investments in the community’s welfare.
The release of land by the Nungua Paramount Chief and elders for the building would benefit government attempts to boost enrollment in TVET institutions. This is according to Dr. Fred Kyei Asamoah, the director general of the Commission for TVET. He said that the government wants to raise enrollment from 10% to around 20%.
The Borteymanm TVET institution, when finished, would help supplement the existing government TVET institutions. Additionally, it will help to create jobs and transform youth into self-sufficient adults. According to the director general of the Commission for TVET, the government has invested more than $500 million in TVET education since 2017. With a particular focus on the Greater Accra Region.
Furthermore, the traditional council was praised by Dr. Asamoah for the property. And he said that the facility will serve to educate and increase youth contribution to nation-building.
