Split Nkoranza district into two - DCE


The Nkoranza District Chief Executive, Mr. James Kwabena Appiah-Awuah, has appealed for the division of the district into two to accelerate the development of the communities.

The DCE made the appeal when he accompanied Major Derek Oduro (rtd), MP for Nkoranza North, on his maiden visit to Yefri, Domeabra, Boana, Bodom and Tanfiano to thank the people for voting for him in the by-elections.

He stated that Nkoranza was so large, unwieldy and populous for one District Assembly to manage it, “hence the need for the creation of two districts to make the task of managing the communities easy”.

Mr. Appiah-Awuah said the results of the by-elections indicated that the area was strong support base of the New Patriotic Party and the creation of the districts would boost their ego and morale for the 2008 general election.

He urged religious and traditional authorities, as well as all stakeholders to support the proposal to obtain a favorable response from government and asked the people to bury their political differences and forge ahead in unity.

Major Oduro advised the youth to be united to be able to help initiate development programmes and form groups so they could undertake income generating ventures to improve their living conditions.

He urged them to shun social vices and to be disciplined so they could become responsible citizens and expressed his readiness to assist them in their development programmes.
