Assembly embarks on massive physical development… Across new Afigya Kwabre District

By Ernest Best Anane, Kodie-Ash - Ghanaian Chronicle

THE AFIGYA Kwabre District Assembly has initiated projects, to give a befitting face-lift to Kodie, sited as the district capital, following the creation of the new district, early this year.

The Assembly has accordingly rehabilitated the local police station, at the cost of GH¢4,538, while the court building has been refurbished at the cost of GH¢6,923.80, including the cost of an additional water closet toilet facility.

The government has also approved funding for the construction of a Jubilee ICT Centre at Kodie.

The District Chef Executive (DCE), Mr. Kwasi Karikari-Achamfour, disclosed these as contained in a report of the Executive Committee, at the Second Ordinary Meeting of the First Session last week Tuesday.

**He said two offices and a store had been rehabilitated for the District Environmental Health Unit, while a three-unit classroom block was being constructed at Adwumakasekese, at the cost of GH¢32.000.

The DCE said an Area Council office at Boamang, would be constructed at GH¢5,733.00, while a six-unit classroom block was to be constructed at Kwanang, at the cost of GH¢18,000.

Mr. Achamfour further disclosed that beside the approval of funding for the construction of a dormitory block for the Aduman Senior High School, the Assembly had projected to embark on the extension of electricity to all Junior High schools in the district, very soon.

He also announced that the Assembly had almost completed the process of acquiring land, for the construction of offices to house the various Ministries and Departments, to enhance the decentralisation policy of the government.

Following complaints of dissatisfaction with the mass cocoa spraying exercise, DCE Achamfour urged the assembly members to get involved in the monitoring of the activities of the spraying gangs, to make the exercise a success.

The meeting was also informed that the DCE had, since assumption of office nine months ago, toured 60% of the entire district.

Meanwhile, the General Assembly has commended the Executive Committee, headed by the DCE, for the great strides it had made within this short time the Assembly was established, following the creation of the district in March, this year.
