A tall list of infrastructure projects, implemented by the Akatsi North District Assembly under the “Better Ghana Agenda” pursued by the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC), is said to be progressively changing the face of the area, just within two years.
The district, which is largely farming area, is surprisingly receiving a speedy transformation just two and half years after its establishment.
The District Chief Executive (DCE) for the area, Mr. James Gunu, told The Herald that the remarkable performance of the Assembly through the help of their Member of Parliament (MP), Peter Nortsu Kotoe, was in fulfillment of “Better Ghana Agenda’ pledge, made to the people during the 2012 campaign.
The Herald, has observed that, many uncompleted projects, which were inherited by the Assembly from the then Ave-Avenor District, have all been completed in addition to some new ones, including construction of classroom blocks, that led to the elimination of schools under trees with the provision of permanent structures.
Some of the major projects completed this year alone included; 4-Unit Classroom Block at Agormor , Newly Constructed Borehole at Boekpe, Rehabilitated 4-Unit Semi Detached Nurses Quarters, Warehouse and Revenue office at Ave-Dakpa, Affordable Housing Project, Staff Quarters at Dakpa New Site , 6 Unit Garage at the Assembly’s Premises, among other projects.
Through the instrumentality of the DCE and MP, the people of Ave in the Akatsi North, can now boast of a Magistrate Court and a well resourced police station.
Mr. Gunu, said there were many significant developmental projects that have been done, but unfortunately, the inability to effectively communicate these successes and achievements to the public, gave the impression that nothing was being done to develop the nation.
But he, however, maintained that the good works being done on the quiet would speak, and will secure the NDC another victory in the 2016 general election.
Meanwhile, a new six unit ultra-modern classroom block, which has also been constructed at Bame is expected to be commissioned next week.
He disclosed that a number of construction works are underway at various communities and hoped that the district would see a complete modernization by the end of President John Dramani Mahama’s first term in office.
