Chief appeals for equal distribution of resources


Twifo-Mampong (C/R) June 3, GNA- The Omanhene of Twifo-Mampong traditional area, Nana Appiah Nuamah II, on Saturday called to district assemblies to ensure equitable distribution of projects in the various district to enhance the development of the country. He pointed out that, some agitations and demonstrations by rural dwellers were partially due to the unequal distribution of development projects, stressing that the time had come for the government to listen to the cry of the people and give them what they need.

Nana Nuamah made the appeal in his palace at Twifo- Mampong when the District Chief Executive of Twifo-Heman-Lower Denkyira, Mr Samuel Yaw Agyeibie-Kesse paid a courtesy call on four paramount chiefs in the district. He called on the people to take advantage of the basic facilities being provided by the government to improve upon their living conditions.

The Omanhene also appealed to chiefs and people in the area to refrain from unnecessary chieftaincy disputes and gear their efforts towards the development of the district. Mr. Agyeibie-Kesse, on his part gave the assurance that the government would give the necessary support and logistics to communities, which initiate self-help projects. He said the district assembly common fund allocated to the district cannot meet the demands of the over 1,000 communities in the district and therefore asked the assembly, and unit committee members to rekindle their interest in communal labour to supplement government's efforts.

The DCE also visited Nana Amoa Sasarku II, Omanhene of Twifo Heman traditional area, Nana Kwesi Kenn II, Omanhene of Ati-Mokrkwa and Odeefo Boa Amponsem II, Denkyirahene, who made similar appeals to the government to ensure equal distribution of the national cake.
