Akrofuom District Assembly mobilises record GH¢725k revenue

The Akrofuom District Assembly has mobilised a record total of GH¢725,245.88 in revenue far in excess of the target of GH¢680,000.

The performance is said to be 106.8% over and above the budget for the year 2021, and a remarkable improvement in revenue mobilised by the Assembly since 2018 when the District was created.

Mr. Maurice Jonas Woode, District Chief Executive (DCE), who announced this at a General Assembly meeting at Akrofuom, the district capital, attributed the high performance to prudent revenue mobilisation measures put in place.

He said the financial strength of the Assembly had enabled it to settle indebtedness to contractors, and is currently not depending on the District Assembly Common Fund for its projects.

Mr. Woode announced that the government had released funds to three contractors for the execution of the district’s share of the Agenda 111 flagship programme in the hospitals sector.

The DCE also said the Assembly was liaising with the Japan Embassy to construct a Community-based Health Planning and Services (CHPS)  compound and nurses quarters at Yaadome, which would also serve the people of Betenase, Bredi, Oforikrom, Abusa and Dampanyaw.

The Assembly, the DCE further announced, was extending electricity to communities, including Akrofuom, Okyerekrom, Ampunyase and Wamase, and assured that 85% of the communities would be covered by the close of the year.
