The Prestea Hunni-Valley Municipal Assembly (PHMA) has held a Town Hall Meeting to brief the chiefs and people of the area and bring them up to speed on developmental projects it had initiated.
The Town Hall Meeting is an event which serves as a common platform for duty bearers to engage the citizenry in open discussions. Addressing the meeting, the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of the Assembly, Mozart Kwaku Owuh, stressed that policies and programmes meant to improve the living conditions of the people were being implemented.
He mentioned, for instance, the One District, One Factory (1D1F) and the nation Builders Corps (NABCO). Turning to developmental issues, MCE Owuh, better known as ‘Edwuma Wura’, said the PHMA was receiving a good share of the national cake through the instrumentality of its Member of Parliament and the Regional Minister.
He mentioned, for instance, that a 12-unit classroom block has been constructed at the Hunni-Valley Senior High School and handed over to the Assembly, while a hospital is to be built in Bogoso. A contract to that effect has been awarded.
The Assembly has also built a four-unit classroom block at the Prestea Senior High School, an ultra modern Kindergarten school block at Petepom, completed Community-based Health Planning and Services (CHPS) compounds in Wassa Asikoma, Pieso, Broni Nkwanta and Bepoase, while a new modern CHPS compound was near completion in Gyimakrom.
MCE Mozart Owuh also used the opportunity to acknowledge the role and contributions of the Member of Parliament for the area.
According to the MCE, the MP had been very helpful in giving a facelift to the Abosso Health Center, and rehabilitating the Children’s Ward.
The MP, Mrs Barbara Oteng Gyasi, who was present, on her part, enumerated a number of developmental projects she had undertaken with the help of the PHDA.
