A NINE-MEMBER team from the Ahafo-Ano North District Assembly led by the District Chief Executive (DCE), Mr David Addai Amankwah has inspected a number of completed and ongoing development projects in the district.
The team comprising members of the works, development, and finance/administration subcommittees undertook the inspection to enable the assembly get a firsthand information about the way finances of the assembly were being utilised for the benefit of the people.
The first point of visit was the Mabang Senior High School (SHS) where the team inspected two aqua privy toilets and a boys’ dormitory block under construction as well as a police station project in the town, work on which had stalled for sometime now.
At Manfo, the assembly team inspected an uncompleted clinic under construction at the Manfo Grotto and the completed market for the town.
When the team got to Akwasiase, the members toured two project sites—small water projects being funded by the International Development Agency (IDA) and a community library being funded with the MPs common fund.
Other towns and villages where the team inspected projects were Dwaaho, Asuyhiae, Assin Asafo, Bosikese, Twabidi, Subriso, Sunuroso and Odumasi.
Some of the projects included school buildings, boreholes, bridges and markets.
At Assin Asafo, members of the team realised that a broken bridge needed urgent attention to prevent a number of communities from being cut off from the
rest of the district as the rains continued.
At Asuyhiae, the team commended the contractor working on the construction of nurses’ quarters.
When they reached Bosikese, it was also realised that a six-classroom block for the district assembly primary school, which was ripped off during a rainstorm some years back had not been re-roofed.
Consequently, schoolchildren were studying under trees.
Briefing journalists later, Mr Addai-Amankwah said the tour enabled them to know whether the contractors working on the various projects were doing good work or not.
He said some of the contractors would soon be invited by the assembly to answer some pertinent questions.
