Oti Regional Minister tours Nkwanta South Municipality

The Oti Regional Minister, Mr Joshua Makubu, has begun an official tour of some communities beginning from the Nkwanta South Munic­ipality.

Mr Makubu, the Oti Minister, in an interview on the sidelines, said the tour’s objective was to familiarise himself with the people and get firsthand information about the development situation in the region.

Other communities visited in­clude Bontibor, Pusupu, Obanda, Brewaniase, Abrewankor, Nyam­bong, Keri and Gekorong.

During the tour, it was ob­served that a major development challenge affecting the people included the bad nature of roads, which was affecting haulage of farm produce to market centres, thus becoming a bane for farmers and the business chain.

Nana Obiako Akola I, Chief of Nyambong, mentioned the part of roads affected in his area and appealed to the minister to assist in fixing them.

They, however, expressed appreciation for the minister’s visit and praised his humble leadership, saying “this is the first time a minis­ter has visited the community.”

Some described the visit as “historic and remarkable”. Mr Makubu used the opportunity to thank the people for their support for the Akufo-Addo-led govern­ment.

He educated them on various government policies, especially on education, health and agriculture and the efforts the government was undertaking to stabilise the econ­omy and bringing development to the Nkwanta South Municipality.

He also advised the people to live in peace with their neighbours for national cohesion and the need­ed development.

The Regional Minister was in the company of the Municipal Chief Executive of Nkwanta South, Mr Bright K. Lenwah, some officers of the Oti Regional Coor­dinating Council, Nkwanta South Municipal Assembly members and some NPP constituency executives. —GNA
