To bring development to the doors steeps of the people as well as improve teaching, learning and security, the Municipal Chief Executive of the Atwima Nwabiagya, Mr. Michael Awuku Amoah and the Member of Parliament, Mr. Emmanuel Adjei Anhwere jointly cut sod for the commencement of two educational facilities and a police station in the municipality.
The facilities, 6-unit classroom block with library, offices and W/C toilet facility each is earmarked to be constructed in Abuakwa- Agogo, Maakro and a police station at Sepase all in the Atwima Nwabiagya Municipality
Addressing the chiefs and people of the respective communities, the Municipal Chief Executive pledged his commitment to ensuring the speedy completion of the projects in time. When completed, according to him, will improve learning and teaching in the community.
Mr.Awuku stressed lengthy that under the able leadership of the president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, his priority area is to ensure that every child has access to quality and affordable education of which he has made an outstanding foot-print of developmental infrastructures in the municipality. Hence, the remarkable developmental projects are not ”green book” but physical projects that are distinct for any performance-equalization.
The three are GET FUND projects projected to complete in four months of which a whopping sum of Ghc1.225, 192 will be dished into its constructions. The contractors are; Fapim Construction Ltd and Ernest Construction ltd
The Member of Parliament, Mr. Emmanuel Adjei Anhwere in his address during the sod-cutting averred that the constituency under his regime and president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has received significant infrastructure development in the history of the constituency. The unprecedented performance of the president, Nana Addo’s led government will speak for the NPP party in the upcoming general elections but was quick to call on his constituents to go out and register to enable them vote massively for the New Patriotic Party in December, 7.
In another development, the Municipal Chief Executive in a follow-up press briefing raised serious concerns about market stores that were started in the previous administration in Abuakwa, a suburb of the municipality. These stores were started in 2010 earmarked to complete in two years and as at the time of the press briefing, the market is still not completed.
The MCE explained that the two store projects are BOT and SDLL. And the BOT project has 360 stores estimated to complete in two years. However, the assembly allegedly collected over 800 client’s money against the 360 stores raising suspicions of flaw play in the projections of the stores’ distribution.
Again, the SDLL project also contains 192 store capacity estimated to be distributed to 172 clients and these people or clients had paid their monies and are expecting their stores. The strange aspect of the matter was that a project which is BOT-Build, Operate and Transfer, the assembly has no right to raise money for such project. However, the matter has been referred to the Regional Minister for redress…because the people need their stores or money. The current administration has no hands in the initial arrangement of the stores. Thus, the outfit has taken fruitful steps to ensure the market women and men who have paid their money to bear with the assembly as they look forward to finding a lasting solution to their grievances.
