Wassa Amenfi E. Assembly Meets

By Francis Donkoh, Wassa Akropong - newtimesonline.com

BUILDING engineers have been urged to strictly monitor and bring to order, contractors who do shoddy work.

Mr Francis Agyarko, assemblyman for Afransie in the Wassa Amenfi East District, said this at the assembly’s fourth ordinary meeting at Wassa Akropong.

He described as improper and unacceptable the manner in which some contractors execute saying such contractors are not doing the country any good as they are being unfair to the people who are the beneficiaries of the projects.

On her part, the District Chief Executive, Doris Gyarpoma Oduro, pledged her preparedness to team up with her staff to monitor the assembly’s contractors to ensure that jobs are completed on schedule.

Concerning those who seemed to have abandoned their projects, Mrs Oduro warned that she will take the contracts from them in favour of those who are serious.

Mrs Oduro requested the assembly to explore the possibility of taking advantage of the sister-city concept, which is fast gaining currency, as an intervention in the assembly’s developmental pursuit.

The concept, she explained, has the potential of winning enormous financial, technical and material assistance to support the assembly’s developmen-tal budgets.

Mrs Oduro was not happy about the consistent poor performance of the assembly in revenue generation and called on the members to help address the issue.

She said the assembly in 2007, failed to achieve its revenue target of GH¢266.100 saying only GH¢126,860, representing 47.67 per cent was realised as at the end of the year.
