Community targets ¢80m for electrification project


The chiefs and people of Atweaa near Nsuta in the Sekyere West District are to organize a fund-raising harvest on Easter Sunday towards their electrification project.

The Chairman of the town's unit committee, Mr Yaw Asemah, said residents are paying special levies of ¢10,000 a woman and ¢20,000 a man and non-residents would pay ¢30,000 a woman and ¢50,000 a man.

Mr Asemah said the project, estimated at over ¢80 million, started about five years ago and is at an advanced stage.

He said 100 high and low-tension poles had been erected and that the government had provided a transformer.

Mr Asemah commended the Sekyere West District Assembly and Mr Benjamin Asonaba Dapaah, member of the Council of State for their immense contributions towards the project.
