The Chief of Achiase-Nwansanmere in the Atwima Nwabiagya North District of the Ashanti Region, Nana Kwabena Frimpong, has called for the support of the District Assembly to complete some major development projects he personally initiated for his community.
The Chief’s priority is the main road network linking the neighbouring communities, which is in a deplorable condition currently, and has worsened with the onset of the rainy season.
The end result is that drivers have to battle with potholes amid the impeded free flow of traffic.
The Chief catalogued challenges they were facing when the District Chief Executive, Rebecca Yeboah, paid an official visit to the community to engage the chiefs and the people, and to assess their challenges.
Nana Frimpong disclosed that he had already acquired some construction materials, including gravels, for the take-off of the road project, while the community hospital he initiated five years ago was about 70 percent complete.
“I have also commenced
of over 3,000 blocks and chippings, and I hope it would improve the lot of my people, if completed,” he stated.
The Chief, therefore, sought the support of the Assembly in the implementation of the projects to ensure his dreams for the community come into fruition.
The DCE lauded the efforts of the Chief and his commitment to undertake projects to boost economic development and improve the livelihoods of the people in the district.
She gave the assurance that though a newly-created district, the Assembly would pay attention to the Chief’s prioritised projects, and asked the chiefs to exercise restraint while it (Assembly) streamlines the scheme of things.
The Presiding Member for the Assembly, who doubles as the Assembly Member for the area, Ohemeng Prempeh, commended Nana Frimpong for his initiatives, and promised to contribute to the development of the community.
According to him, he had assisted in the provision of street lights, while machinery to re-shape the roads was in operation.
The Presiding Member further disclosed that a number of students from the area had benefitted from the government’s scholarship scheme.
