 “We have an agenda to prosecute -create jobs and wealth as our contribution towards the progress, growth and development of our people, I encouraged all assemblies to turn their challenges into opportunities to increase performance and solve the critical need for economic empowerment.

“You should reason among yourselves, strengthen best performance and confront challenges head on by sustaining the calm and peaceful environment within the region to ensure peace, unity in progress,” Mr Ntim advised.

Francis Oppong, the District Chief Executive, commended the president and the sector minister for the construction of a befitting assembly block for the efficient and effective administration of the district.
