The Lower Manya Krobo Municipal Chief Executive, Hon. Jacob Frederick K. Acolatse, has assured residents of Odumase North electoral area that the assembly will complete and upgrade development projects in the municipality.
The MCE gave the assurance when The National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) in the Municipality organized a forum for residents to interact with the MCE.
The forum—more or less a people’s forum— was aim at giving the people the opportunity to table their problems before the MCE to enable the assembly attend to them.
The Assembly Member for Odumase North Electoral Area, Hon. Ayerh Kofi Zhando, complained of the theft of street lights in the electoral area and how that poses a threat to security.
He also asked the MCE to use his good office to put up a place of convenience for his people since they have to travel long distances before they could attend to nature’s call.
Hon. Zhando also complained of lack of waste containers in his electoral area and urged the MCE to provide these containers to stop littering of waste and to prevent cholera.
In response, Hon. Acolatse said all buildings plans must make provision for places of convenience, adding that he would ensure that building plans that did not have them would not be given permits.
He assured the people that the Assembly would soon complete the servicing of the grader which would be used to rehabilitate roads in the area.
On the street lights, he said, the Assembly had tasked its Electrician to visit the various communities in the area and check all faulty street lights so that accessories are provided accordingly.
Present at the gathering was the Municipal Director for NCCE, Mr. Francis Cobbah and his staff, some heads of department amongst other prominent people.
