Mr Gabriel Mfodjoh, District Planning Officer made this known to the Ghana News Agency in an interview at Apam. He was reacting to media reports accusing the acting District Chief Executive, Ms Joyce Aidoo for not living up to expectation during her tenure of office.

Mr Mfodjoh said the projects were executed with the District Assembly Common Fund, the HIPC, Social Investment, European Union Micro-Project, and Village Infrastructure Project Funds. "All these projects were done under the able leadership of Ms Aidoo," the Planning Officer said.

He said the good performance of the assembly has attracted African Development Bank, to undertake some development projects to improve on the living conditions of the people.

He said the district was one of the few in the Central Region, which had been hooked on to the Internet.

"The DCE has done a good job and deserves commendation but not condemnation," he said.
