Development

Mr Stephen Kwame Quaye, District Chief Executive (DCE) for Awutu Senya District, has called on all sectional leaders in the area to bury their differences for the development of the area.

Mr Quaye, who made the call in an interview with the Ghana News Agency at his office at Awutu Beraku, said development can be accelerated with a united front and it is imperative for us to put aside our partisanship lens to come together to address challenges which confronts us.

The DCE said the assembly has been able to complete 50 percent of on-going projects they inherited which include school infrastructures, CHIP Compound at Ayeresu-Offadaa, J’ Kroduia Area Council Block, and the I.C.T Center at Senya.

He said they were funded with the Common Fund adding that the Assembly’s Internal Generating Fund (IGF) improved by 30 percent as compared to the previous year.

He said the assembly has acquired a site at Bonsuoko near Senya for the final disposal of both liquid and solid waste.

On roads, the DCE said a lot of re-sharpening of road have been done, including Nyarkokwa- Obrachire Ahintia-Kemuwu to Loe yee-Akrampah junction, Obrachire SHS roads.

He said the assembly will this year extend the re-shaping works to other area in the district for free movement of goods and services and embark on construction of permanent accommodation for DCE’s, pavement of Awutu Durbar grounds and Senya Lorry station, Teachers Quarters at Krobonshie, alongside the completion of projects they inherited from the past administration.

On education the DCE expressed concern that, a total of 2,420 candidates registered for the 2018 BECE, but 2,384 wrote the examination saying the percentage of passes was 73 percent more that of the 2017.

He said the achievement came about as a result of measures the assembly in collaboration with the district directorate of the Ghana Education Service.

He said Obrachire SHS is the only school in the district executing the double track programme and teaching and learning is going on smoothly.

He commended the assembly member for Ahentia Electoral Area through whose initiative a Non-governmental organization has constructed a six unit classroom block for Darko Yaw Bentum community.

He said the district has challenges but the most serious is one chieftaincy disputes in the two traditional which is hindering the progress and the development of the area and appealed to factions in such disputes to cooperate with the assembly to find lasting solutions to their concerns.
