Dr Ben Asante, Chief Executive Officer for Ghana Gas Company Limited says his outfit is committed to using resources available to it to develop communities across the country.

Addressing the people of Asokwa last Friday during a sod cutting ceremony for the construction of an artificial-turf and changing room facility for the Asokwa Municipal Assembly at the Presbeyterian School, Dr Asante said his outfit was still considering proposals for such facilities for other communities.

Being a native of Asokwa, the CEO promised to do more to help accelerate the rate of development in the famous community in the Ashanti Region.

Dr Asante rallied persons who are from Asokwa and in government to make their presence felt in the community so that together they can help develop the area and provide job opportunities for the youth.

”I will humbly encourage persons who are from Asokwa and are in government to join some of us to give back to the place that gave us life and shaped our future to become who we are today”, Dr Asante stated.


Addressing the gathering later, Madam Patricia Appiagyei commended Ghana Gas for the initiative and urged the contractor to work according to schedule.

She noted that the completion of the project would contribute to the development of the Asokwa community.

The use of the football field, she also said, would help for the unearthing of budding stars and football players for the country.

Madam Appiagyei thanked the CEO of Ghana Gas for showing commitment for the development of Asokwa and asked that more of such projects be brought to the communities in Asokwa.


On his part, Chief Akwannuasah Gyimah, Municipal Chief Executive for Asokwa thanked Dr Ben Asante for accepting the proposal from the assembly and for deciding to carry out the construction in such a swift manner.

He asked the contractor and labourers to give off their best to ensure the project is finished on time so that it can be put into good use.


Maxwell Kofi Jumah, Chief Executive for GIHOC said he was happy a son of Asokwa was giving back to the community that gave him life and talent.

He urged all others within Asokwa to consciously contribute their quota to ensure the total development of the municipality.
