Mr Okyere stated that he needed staff and stakeholders’ support to achieve his vision for the area which included, Ashaiman becoming a “24-hours liveable city” by the year 2025.
He added that it was his aim to ensure that Ashaiman attained a Metropolitan status by the end of his administration.
He announced that in pursuant to the Local Government Act 936 of 2016, which deals with lands and its spatial planning, he has decided to restructure the Statutory Planning Committee of the Assembly to bring sanity into the development system and prevent abuse of the system.
