Nkwantakese (Ash), April 04, GNA - The Afigya-Kwabre District Assembly has given thumps up to the chief of Nkwantakese, Nana Boakye Yam II, for bringing development to the community.
Mrs. Emelia Botchway, the District Coordinating Director, said his contribution to education, access to quality healthcare and improvement of water sanitation, had been tremendous.
The chief with revenue from the sale of stool lands has built accommodation for teachers, a maternity block, constructed additional classrooms to create adequate space for teaching and learning, put up a library and information and communication technology (ICT) centre.
Additionally, he has procured tables and chairs for the school children, sunk a borehole to give his people access to potable water and paid for the resurfacing of the town roads alongside the fixing of street bulbs.
Mrs. Botchway, speaking at the 10th anniversary celebration of the installation of Nana Boakye Yam at Nkwantakese, asked other chiefs in the area to emulate.
She encouraged them to put the welfare of the people they were leading ahead of individual comfort and convenience.
Nana Boakye Yam announced the release of 12 plots of land for the construction of clinic.
The project is being undertaken with support from the Social Investment Fund (SIF).
He called for continued cooperation and understanding of his people to sustain the community on the path of progress.
