THE District Chief Executive (DCE) for Atwima Kwanwoma, Mr Emmanuel Agyei-Dankwa, has stated that it is impossible for the government and the district assembly to provide all the development needs of the people.For that reason, he urged chiefs and people in the various communities to rekindle their communal spirit to complement the efforts of the government and the assembly at accelerating the pace of development of the district.
Mr Agyei-Dankwa said this during a familiarisation tour of some communities in the district.
The communities include New Adwampong, Konkori, Kentinkyire and Kwanwoma.
He used the opportunity to brief the people on government policies and programmes, as well as some projects to be undertaken in the area.
Mr Agyei-Dankwa said the district assembly, though new, was poised to
live up to expectation by leading the people to development.
The DCE assured the people that a number of schools would be hooked on to the school feeding programme next year.
He, therefore, enjoined the people to take interest in the education of their children because it was only education that could change the face of development of the district.
One common appeal that ran through the communities was the provision of toilet facilities.
The DCE stated that the assembly would seriously consider the appeals at the appropriate time.
At Kentinkyire, the assembly member, Mr Akwasi Bruku Dankwa, appealed for drains on the edges of the main road in the town to prevent erosion.
He also appealed for teachers' quarters to entice teachers to accept posting to the town.
At New Adwampong, the chief, Nana Akosah Yiadom, called for the tarring of the road from Konkori to promote development.
