Development is shared responsibility-Elliot Barnor

Mr Elliot Fosu Barnor, Kuwait-Aprabo-Oti assemblyman and PM for Asokwa Municipal Assembly ( cleanly shaved) presenting the items to the Bankyease Landlords Association members last Sunday.

The Assembly man for Kuwait-Aprabo-Oti electoral area, Elliot Barnor Fosu has asked residents in the area to support efforts by the Asokwa Municipal Assembly to develop all electoral areas in the Municipality.

Mr. Barnor who also doubles as the Presiding Member (PM) for the Asokwa Municipal Assembly said proper infrastructural development is carried out by people.

Speaking to the Ghanaian Observer Newspaper when he donated 20 bags of cement, iron rods, culverts and an unspecified amount of cash for the construction of a bridge at Bankyease, the assemblyman called for support from residents.

The Asokwa PM disclosed that the assembly has currently earmarked development projects for the 12 electoral areas and rallied residents to support the execution of same.

‘’As the assemblyman for these three communities I am determined to lead development efforts and this is why I decided to support my people at Bankyease with these items so they can put up a good bridge for human and vehicular passage’’, Mr Barnor intimated.


The Asokwa PM encouraged the residents to embrace the communal spirit that ensured the development of most cities in Ghana.

He noted that no assembly or government can carry out the development of districts, communities and regions alone.

Mr Barnor stated that the involvement of the local people in every development process is important since the locals will be the immediate beneficiaries of same.

He rallied people in the community to support the unit committee and his outfit, adding that all the efforts are aimed at making the Kuwait-Oti-Aprabo community a prosperous one.


Receiving the items on behalf of the Bankyease community, Kwaku Gyening, Organizer for the Landlords Association of Bankyease commended the assembly member for his gesture.

He said the group is overwhelmed by the swift nature of the response from their assemblyman to their plea.

The route to the community, the organizer noted becomes impassable when it rains.

He said the construction of the bridge and waterways will therefore help to alleviate the plight of residents of Bankyease.
