By gna

Nana Kwame Owusu-Agyeman, Antoahene, has inaugurated a modern aqua-privy lavatory, worth GH¢80,000 at Antoa in the Kwabre District.

The facility, sponsored by the Chief, has 24 tiled chambers with four hand washing sinks and an office for the keeper, for the adults, and 12 seats for children.

Inaugurating it, Nana Owusu-Agyeman thanked the youth and the elders for their loyalty and stressed that he was prepared to do more to enhance the systematic development of the town.

The Chief has already provided two mechanized boreholes totalling GH¢300.000 and a 180-metre street-drain valued at GH¢18,000 for the community.

He appealed to the people to refrain from anti-social activities that would retard his development initiatives.

He has also started the construction of a three-storey building to be used as classrooms, Computer and Science Laboratories as well as Teachers' Common rooms by the basic schools in the town.

The ground floor has been completed and is being used as a dining hall, kitchen and classrooms by the kindergarten, with two 21-inch television sets provided for the children.

He said he was poised for the real development of the town and would build separate Teachers' bungalows after the completion of the storey building and called on the youth to continue to offer their support when called to provide communal labour.

Nana Boakye Ansah Debrah, Asokore-Mamponghene commended the Antoahene for his efforts and the sacrifices he was making for the town, stressing that every community needed development-oriented chiefs like him.

Professor Mrs. Esi Awuah, a Lecturer at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) in Kumasi, appealed to the people to observe environmental and proper personal hygiene and also take good care of the facilities to ensure their durability.
