She appealed to well-to-do citizens to take the responsibility and support the proper upbringing and development of the inmates and marginalised people to so that would grow and become responsible adults.
Later in an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) Mrs Prempeh said majority of Ghanaians would experience remarkable improvement in their socio-economic livelihoods in 2019, saying the One-District-One Factory would gather momentum and create more jobs for the people next year.
She advised the people to exercise patience with the government, as President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo developed the nation beyond aid.
