MOTORBIKESThe Sunyani Municipal Assembly under the supervision of the Local Government Ministry has purchased a motor bike each for its Assembly Members to help them in their day-to-day supervision of the various communities in their respective electoral areas.

At a ceremony held at the forecourt of the Sunyain Municipal Assembly, 50 ROYAL brand motorbikes were handed over to the Assembly Members.

The Sunyain Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) Hon. Kwasi Oppong Ababio and the Presiding Member Hon. Senyo Agbedra Yao both advised the members to be cautious of the precautionary measures on the use of motorbike to ensure their own safety.

 

Hon. Kwasi Oppong said the delivery of the bikes would enhance their efforts in paying regular visits to members of their communities to source for first hand information and needs of their people to be able to carry them to the Assembly meetings for redress.

He also charged members to initiate and supervise development projects in their respective communities to assist the people with their needs through communal labour.

Hon. Kwasi Oppong Ababio noted, “The enormous support and encouragement that I have so far received from Assembly Members, the Staff and Nananom since we went through successful election. He said all should forget whatever happened during the period and forge ahead in unity, for in unity lies our strength and development.”

He called on them to eschew all negative practices and actions that would tend to thwart their efforts to achieve the set developmental goals.

He was expectant of the fact that, all officers and Assembly Members would put their shoulders to the wheel of development so that when we are no more on the scene, the future generation would appreciate what we have done for the Municipality and the nation in general.

Hon. Kwasi Oppong applauded members on their financial performance for 2011. According to him, “The Assembly’s projected Internally Generated Revenue for 2011 stood at Seven Hundred and Ten Thousand, Two Hundred and Eighty-Three Ghana Cedis, Seventy-Five Pesewas (GH¢710,283.75). As at 31st December, 2011, the Assembly had been able to generate a total amount of Seven Hundred Thousand, Three Hundred and Thirty One Ghana Cedis (GH¢700,331.00) representing 98.6% performance.”

He said the Assembly’s share of the District Assemblies Common Fund for 2011 was GH¢2,200,000.00 and by the close of the year the Assembly had received a total of GH¢612,759.69.
