In line with a fulfillment of a promise made by President John Dramani Mahama in his State of the Nation Address in February 2015.
The government has presented 92 outboard motors to members of two fishing associations in Tema. Each beneficiary paid GH¢6,000 and the government will bear the remaining coat of the outboard motors which range between GH¢12,000 and GH¢18,000 on the market.
The beneficiary associations are the Canoe Owners Association and the National Association of Fish Processors and Traders Association at Tema New Town.
The distribution of the outboard motors is in fulfillment of a promise President Mahama made in his State of the Nation Address in February 2015.
The Metropolitan Chie Executive for Tema, Mr Isaac Ashai Odamtten, who made the presentation on behalf of the government, said the distribution of the outboard motors was in recognition of the role fishing plays in the economic development of the area.
