In line with its determination to develop the recently created municipality, the Asokwa Municipal Assembly (ASMA) is embarking on five infrastructure projects in some selected communities.
These projects are being funded from the Assembly’s Common Fund as well as its Internally Generated funds (IGF).
The five projects consists of a ten (10) mechanized borehole facility for ten communities in Asokwa, construction of two canteens for Gyinyase and Aprabon schools which are on the Ghana School Feeding Program (GSFP), a 3unit-classroom block for Atonsu-Sukura M/A School, fencing for Gyinyase cluster of schools as well as the construction of a 6-unit classroom block for Asokwa M/A school.
These projects are part of those captured by the Assembly to be undertaken at the first quarter of the year and funds being used are from the months of January to March, 2019.
Speaking to the Ghanaian Observer Newspaper during an inspection tour of the project sites, Chief Executive for Asokwa Municipal Assembly, Chief Akwannuasa Gyimah said the assembly is committed to using resources they generate to develop infrastructure in the communities of Asokwa.
This, he noted is the reason for the creation of the municipality by the President under the local government system.
Chief Akwannuasa said the projects are intended to give relief to people in the community as well as pupils who study at congested spaces in their schools.
He noted that similar and more projects were in the pipeline to ensure every other community or electoral area in the municipality has its fair share of development.
‘’The Asokwa Assembly is well aware of its mandate and that is to lead development efforts including job creation for the youth and all persons who are residents of the Municipality’’, the Asokwa MCE stressed.
Speaking about the real intent of the projects, the MCE said the fencing of the Gyinyase cluster of schools will prevent people from taking over the school land.
The fencing, Chief Akwannuasa mentioned will also curb the distractions that occur when academic work is going on in class, adding that pupils will also stay within the compound before school closes.
The boreholes, the MCE stressed will help communities who face difficulty assessing water to do so and have water available at all times.
The classroom block constructions, the Asokwa MCE intimated will help to offer more spaces for school authorities to teach the increasing number of pupils enrolling in their outfits.
‘’We carefully chose these projects as an Assembly and we intend prioritizing the requests that will before us so that we can carry out projects that are urgent and needful’’, Chief Gyimah reiterated.
