The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Ga Central in the Greater Accra Region, Dr Emmanuel Lamptey has disclosed that the President, before endorsing Metropolitan Municipal District Chief Executives (MMDCEs), strappingly warned them not to abandon projects started by the erstwhile government.
“The warning, stuck with us which directed and encouraged us to work diligently in completing almost all abandoned projects started by the previous National Democratic Congress (NDC) government.
“It also compelled us in our endeavours to enhance our performance in initiating new policies, programmes, interventions and projects since we assumed office for the past three years.
“Before our appointment, we met then as colleague nominees for various Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives at President Nana Akufo-Addo’s residence in Nima and he advised us all not to neglect or ignore projects by the previous government,” Dr Lamptey asserted.
He appreciated efforts made in developing the area by the previous administration but as well censured them for not making budgetary allocation for same and thus enumerated and highlighted some of the growth and developmental projects in progress to transform the municipality.
Among the major projects, Dr Lamptey, who is contesting the New Patriotic Party (NPP)’s Anyaa Sowutuom parliamentary primary in the Greater Accra Region touted, are construction of roads and drainage systems, municipal hospital, municipal fire station to give urgent attention to fire incidents and acquisition of land for the establishment of a bottle and sachet water company.
He explained that all the projects are at 90 per cent completion stage and would go a long way to help give the Ga Central Municipality a massive facelift when fully completed and reiterated the call on the public to warmly embrace the government’s policies, programmes and interventions and maintain NPP government in power for four more years in enhancing total growth and development in the country. -3news.co
