The move is to give strong support to the government’s efforts to grow businesses and open up the area to attract and retain investments for the well-being of the people.
Mr Samuel Kittah, the Municipal Planning Officer said this at a Town Hall Meeting held in Anomabo, to offer the opportunity to people in the communities to discuss the progress and emerging issues of both the central and local government.
The meeting was organised by the Roman Catholic Church Parish Justice and Peace Committee (PJPC) in Anomabo in collaboration with Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS) and the Mfantseman Municipal Assembly (MMA).
Mr Kittah announced some major abandoned or uncompleted projects that would be completed in 2018 as Ayisha Islamic school block at Egyirfa, a 24 unit lockable stores and a slaughter house at Mankessim, as well as a Municipal Court complex at Jedu near Mankessim.
He mentioned other new projects such as the construction of classroom blocks at Mampong, Nkramofokrom, Obuadze, Anomabo Methodist Junior High School (JHS), Yamoransa Roman Catholic JHS and Freeman Methodist JHS.
Others are the construction of a modern market at Yamoransa, kitchen and dining halls for schools on the school feeding programme to ensure that food was prepared in tidy environment to prevent outbreak of diseases like cholera among school children.
To ease the effects of flooding associated with chocked gutters and insanitary conditions, he indicated that the Assembly had earmarked the construction of drainage systems in flood prone areas such as Kormantse, Saltpond, Mankessim and completed design for the construction of an ultra-modern office complex for the Assembly.
On the terrible road traffic management in the Municipality especially at Mankessim, Mr Kittah said the Assembly was in negotiation with traders and drivers to be moved to a new site which was currently under construction.
In the meantime, he advised drivers to ensure strict compliance of road traffic regulations and regularly service their vehicles to reduce road accidents.
He also reminded them of the Assembly's commitment to promote quality health care delivery by extending health services through the construction of new Community Based Health Planning and Services (CHPS) compounds across the Municipality.
Some beneficiary communities include; Ekurabadze, Eguase, Duadze and Nsanfo which would also benefit from free extension of electricity and constant water supply to enable health personnel at the facilities function effectively.
Reverend Father Akwasi Adjei, President of the PJPC, called on Ghanaians to demonstrate high level of commitment to fight acts such as bribery, corruption, dehumanisation, ‘the get-rich-quick attitude’ and political bickering which were hampering the national developmental agenda.
"As Ghanaians, we must exhibit high sense of responsibility and trustworthiness in our chosen professions in order to contribute our quota to national development."
“Fellow Ghanaians, whatever your hands find to do, do it well and with all your ability as unto the Lord. We need to remember that, we are all but God’s stewards and the day of accountability would surely visit us one day,” he said.
