The Queenmother of Sunyani, Nana Akosua Dua Asor Sika Brayie II, has hinted at a 5-year development plan for a new Sunyani.

Addressing the media at the enstoolment of Sunyani Gyaase sub-chiefs, she said; “There is a decision to make Sunyani an enviable town amongst its peers.”

According to her, the 5-year development plan for the new Sunyani was an agenda to project the town to the outside world.

She said that as part of the 5-year development plan, there was an initiative to clean up Sunyani on the first Saturday of every month, starting this year.

Nana Akosua Brayie explained that the initiative was dubbed ‘Ohemaa Apra-pra’. The clean-up exercise would take place simultaneously across Sunyani, and would be in collaboration with the Municipal Assembly.

In a wakeup call to address the traffic and congestion in the Sunyani township, the Queenmother  said the Traditional Council had plans to relocate the Light Industry (Magazine) to a new settlement, and wood workshops to a ‘wood village’ to ease congestion and create a social centre for social activities.

Nana Akosua Brayie called on investors to collaborate with the Sunyani Traditional Council for accelerated development.

“A piece of land has been demarcated at Benue Nkwanta for real estate development. I invite investors to collaborate with the Traditional Council to make this vision a reality,” she said.

Meanwhile, the Bono Regional House of Chiefs, at its 2022 end-of-year meeting in Sunyani, appealed to the government to construct some major roads in the region.

The President of the Bono Regional House of Chiefs, Osagyefo Oseadeyo Dr. Agyemang Badu, in his speech, mentioned that the Berekum-Sampa road, Sunyani town roads, New Dormaa-Kootokrom road, Nsawkaw-Seikwa road, and Badu road amongst others be constructed as a matter of urgency.

He continued that some of the roads had, over the years, been captured in the National Budget, while others were awarded on contract with no contractor on site.

He pleaded with the government and the Roads Minister to hasten their approach to constructing major roads in the region.

Osagyefo commended the government for the completion of phase one of the Sunyani Airport, and called on it to hasten the process to enable the second phase of the airport to commence soon, and also upgrade the Regional Hospital to a Teaching Hospital.
