Mr Ayamdor Alexis Adugdaa,  District Chief Executive (DCE) for Bongo,  has inaugurated a 13-member team to oversee the timely implementation of the Street Naming and Property Numbering exercise in the district.

This was contained in a press statement issued by the District Public Relations Officer, Mr Peter Atogewe Wedam, and copied to the Ghana News Agency  in Bolgatanga

According to the DCE, the exercise was very dear to the President, and as such the deadline he issued must be met at all cost, stressing that the Bongo District Street Naming team must give of its best in its new role, and devote much time and attention to the exercise.

The DCE charged the team to work extra hard as management of the District Assembly was prepared to give them the needed support, and warned that no single member of the team should give excuses for not playing their required roles in ensuring the success of the exercise.

He tasked leadership of the team to write reports on every activity they undertake in the course of the exercise, to enable him forward such reports to authorities about progress being made by the district regarding this national exercise.

Mr Jasper Adenyo, Acting District Co-ordinating Director, urged the team members to put aside their individual differences, work together and collaborate at each stage of the exercise, to put every member?s contribution in line with the overall objective of successfully completing the exercise.

A facilitator, Mr Benny Arkhurst, whose district had already carried out the street naming exercise in one of the districts in southern Ghana, stated in his presentation that the exercise would bring about precision, easy location and quick response to emergencies, like fire outbreaks, ambulance services and police interventions in times of need.

According to the facilitator, it is the duty of the team to educate and persuade people through radio and durbars in order for the public to buy into the exercise and assist the team in its work on the field.

He noted that for the purposes of reference, the team ought to write minutes for every meeting it holds and also report to the DCE and the District Co-ordinating Director, who would be responsible for financing the team?s work plan and logistical needs.

The Paramount Chief of the Bongo Traditional Area, Naba Baba Salifu Alemyaarum, who witnessed the inauguration, observed that even though the Bongo District layout was well planned on paper, there had been haphazard development of buildings and other structures, and called on the assembly?s planning and engineers unit, to rectify the anomaly.

According to the  statement, the committee was inaugurated on January 17, 2014.
