The Ministry of Local Government, Decentralization and Rural Development has presented 1,000 motorbikes to Assembly members in Eastern Region.
The bikes which are 1,248 in total are being given by government to assemblymembers to help them carry out their duties at the local level.
With an arrangement with JSA Logistics Ghana Limited, the firm is in charge of supplying the motorbike.
Although assemblymembers had hoped the delivery would come sooner, there was a slight delay.

On his part, the Dean of Presiding Members in the Eastern Region, Michael Ahwireng expressed appreciation to the government and gave the assurance that assemblymembers will use the bikes for the intended purpose to foster development in the areas where they work.
