Zongo Chief gives thumbs up to President, DCE
The Sarikin Zongo of Oyoko, Alhaji Issah Berkye, has commended the New Patriotic Party government and the Sekyere Kumawu District Assembly for spreading development projects across the district.
The Zongo Chief, in an interaction with the media, said compared with the national Democratic Congress administration the current Nana Akufo-Addo-led government had made the difference by dotting projects across the district.
He commended the government and the District Assembly for ensuring the equitable distribution of projects resulting in development projects, of which the Oyoko Zongo community is a beneficiary.
Alhaji Berkye mentioned that Oyoko community, which is the gateway to the Sekyere Kumawu District, has benefitted from projects by the District Assembly, among which are the rehabilitation of the Oyoko Methodist Junior High School (JHS) at the cost of GH¢93,000, and the construction of a water closet lavatory for the Oyoko Zongo community.
He also pointed to evacuation of accumulated refuse dumps in 13 communities, including Oyoko township in the district, funded at the cost of GH¢55,000 from the Assembly’s Internally Generated Funds to the admiration of the beneficiary communities.
The Chief mentioned a number of schools, electricity, water and roads among others had been provided in the area, and pleaded with the government to continue to share the national cake equitably to maintain the standard of living and improve the lot of the people.
Alhaji Berkye advised the government to consider maintaining the District Chief Executive for Sekyere Kumawu, in order to keep the pace of unprecedented development in the area.
