We’re bent on improving livelihood -DCE

Kwasi Bonzoh, the District Chief Executive for Ellembelle has assured that the leadership of the assembly is committed to opening up the area for business growth and development through massive roads and infrastructure development.

“The northern path of this district, which is the food basket in terms of cocoa and food stuffs seems to be cut away due to poor or non-existing roads and we have devised innovative ways to handle these challenges and bring people on this side closer to the district to engage and do business as well,” he stressed.

He gave assurance at the 2018 Town Hall meeting in the district and indicated that alternative funding sources had been secured for the construction of about 40 kilometres of asphalt roads within the next two years aside a 24-kilometre feeder road to open up the hitherto cut-away communities for robust economic activities and revenue generation.

“We have repackaged and awarded the contract and we are of the firm belief that all roads including Asumase, Nkroful, Asasetra and Telekobokazo roads would eventually be fixed in the process.

“Other means of raising funds to support the assemblies’ activities is proposal writing to attract major investment into the area especially as many of the oil and gas companies operating in the area.

“We hope to create light industrial area in the district where artisans can gather and work as they contribute their quota to the development of the district,” Mr Bonzoh noted.

Theresa Bandoh, a Director with the Ministry of Information who read a speech on behalf of the sector minister, said the ministry sought to develop effective collaboration at all levels of the governance structure.

This, the ministry was doing through public, private and civil society partnership for inclusive and participatory development.

Armstrong Nana Asmah, the Western Regional Information Officer, presented the national status of developmental interventions initiated being implement by the President to propel development at both the local and national level.

He noted that the government ensured fiscal discipline in the management of public finances which resulted in the government attaining its budget deficit target for the first time since 2006.

“The government is also implementing the Greening Business Management Initiative to train and equip the youth with skills and resources to transform vegetable production and implementing the biggest Green House Estate Project in West Africa.” -GNA
