Nkawie-Panin (Ash), Oct 24, GNA - The Nkawie-Panin sub-traditional council has called for a differentiation between the two Nkawie towns, Nkawie-Panin and Nkawie-Kuma, to avoid a lope-sided development of the two areas.
The council explained that the differentiation was necessary in view of the fact that both the government and the Atwima-Nwabiagya District Assembly always treat the two towns as one town. Nana Kusi Amankwaa Marfo II, chief of Nkawie-Panin, said his town had been neglected for far too long in terms of development.
Presenting their case before Mr Thomas Ofori-Donkor, the District Chief Executive when he called on him at his palace at Nkawie-Panin, Nana Kusi Amankwaa Marfo said because the two towns were being treated as one town, every development project is located at Nkawie-Kuma to the detriment of Nkawie-Panin and said this situation should be righted. Mr Ofori-Donkor said his doors were open for constructive criticism and called for co-operation and peace in the town to enable the district assembly to provide more projects for the town.
The DCE appealed to the chiefs to impress upon their people the need for them to pay their property and other rates to enable the assembly generate more funds for development and also advised them to cultivate the spirit of self-help.
