Accra, Sept. 12, GNA – Nesstra Ghana Limited, a Ghanaian company in building and construction has donated some of its Premium paint products worth GH¢150,000.00 to support the Accra Metropolitan Assembly in its city beautification drive.

Mr Yaw Ampem-Darko Antwi, the Marketing and Communication Manager of Nesstra in an interview with the Ghana News Agency said the gesture was part of the company’s corporate and social responsibility to support the initiative.
He described the premium paints Suvinil provided to the AMA as highly resistance to harsh weather conditions, durable and without any health challenges.
Mr Mohammed Adjei Sowah, the Accra Metropolitan Chief Executive, who received the items expressed gratitude to Nesstra and said the donation had come at the right time to facilitate the painting of some selected areas of the city.
