Members of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) on Monday, inspected projects being executed by the assembly in the metropolis, to keep them abreast with activities of AMA.
The members, who were sworn into office last October, were led by the Chief Executive of Accra, Mr. Alfred Okoe Vanderpuije, to inspect the newly-inaugurated Gbegbeyese School and Communication centre.
They also inspected Dansoman Treatment Plants, Okpoti School Compound at Dansoman, the Korle Lagoon, where dredging was being carried out to allow free flow of water from the Odaw River into the sea and Chorkor office complex, which is designed to house a clinic, a community centre and offices and the Mudor Treatment Plant and Saleria School compound.
Other projects inspected were the Lagos Town road construction at Ayawaso, Cable and Wireless School, Kwashieman School Compound, Abavana Park Schools, Accra New Town School, Legon Treatment Plant, East Legon roads and Prisons School at Mamobi.
Mr. Vanderpuije urged the assembly members to work hard towards the implementation of assembly’s projects, urging them to seek ways of solving problems caused by population increase in Accra.
He asked stakeholders to double their efforts to promote sanitation, housing, health and education, and to prevent flooding, fire outbreaks, water shortages and unemployment.
Mr. Vanderpuije said that AMA has, since the occurrence of the June 3 disaster in Accra, put in place measures to avert its recurrence, while promoting sanitation in the city.
He reminded the assembly members that they were elected to serve the interest of the people, but not to pursue their parochial interest.
Mr. Vanderpuije stressed that their election or appointment as assembly members indicated the confidence reposed in them by the electorate and asked them to seek the welfare of the people.
