The Paramount Chief of James Town Obrempong Wetse Kojo II on Tuesday launched his strategic development and welfare agenda for the Ngleshie Alata Traditional Council in Accra.

He pledged to provide jobs for the youth of the traditional area through the modernisation of fishing since majority of inhabitants were fishermen and fish mongers.

“I will lead the shift from the use of canoes to the use of fibre glass fishing vessels fitted with modern fishing gear, and internal effective cold storage facility,” he added.

Obrempong Wetse Kojo II known in private life as Dr. Prince William Bruce-Quaye stated that, education in James Town and its environs would be rigorously pursued, as a taskforce would be established to monitor truants to prevent them from loitering which often end in child labour and abuse.

He commended the President for implementing the double track system aimed at tackling the increase in admission at the Senior High School level.

The paramountcy, he explained, would push for the refurbishment of the old harbour, the rehabilitation of monumental buildings, including the historic James Fort and other old structures to entice more tourists to James Town and the country at large.

“I will set up a James Town Tourist Development Company to coordinate all tourism related activities,” he emphasised.

The Chief said, a weekly clean-up exercise would be introduced adding that, he would provide cleaning tools and train personnel under the Youth Employment Services for the effective management and monitoring of issues related to sanitation in order to ensure compliance by households in the community.

The Chief of Staff of Obrempong Wetse Kojo II, Daniel Nii Arday Tagoe, said all projects earmarked for the area would be funded by the chiefs as part of their support to help the government in achieving its Ghana beyond Aid agenda and added that the projects would begin next year after the burial of the late Obrempong Nii Kojo Ababio V, who died in January, 2018.
