Hon. Regional Minister cuts sod for Construction of new Assembly Complex

Hon. Seth Kwame Acheampong, the Eastern Regional Minister, and Hon. Yaw Owusu Addo, the Muncipal Chief Executive of the Kwahu West Municipal Assembly, have cut the sod to signal the start of construction on the Assembly’s new structure.

Atibie-Kwahu Hene, Barima Asante Bteani, and Mr. Paa Kofi Ansong, a state representative for the Eastern Regional Council, provided the event’s finale and accompaniment on Friday, August 19.

In his speech, the MCE mentioned the new Assembly building as a significant development for the Kwahu West Municipality.

“Today, we are witnessing a major achievement in the Kwahu West Municipality since President Kuffour gave us the freedom in 2004. Assemblies that came few years and even last year have an Assembly complex and it’s been more than 18 years, but today, with the help of the Regional Minister and the Council of State Member, we are going to have an Assembly.

The building the Assembly is currently occupying belongs to the Public Works Department (P.W.D) and with the support of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the Assembly is going to have its complex”, the MCE said.

According to the MCE, the Assembly now leases the majority of its municipally located offices, and occasionally legal disputes over who should get the rent proceeds result from family-related disputes.

Hon. Yaw Owusu Addo praised Nana Atibie-Kwahu Hene for giving the Assembly such a sizable piece of land for the project.

Hon. Seth Kwame Acheampong, the Regional Minister, urged the populace to support the Akufo-Addo administration in order to give the good people of Ghana the best possible governance.

He promised to keep an eye on the development of the new Assembly block to make sure it materializes.

The Minister also said that Hon. Amoako Atta, the Roads Minister, is discussing the construction of additional auxiliary roads that will lead to the new Assembly block in order to facilitate traffic.

“As we have started, I’m pledging on behalf of the government that this is not going to be like what we used to hear. If God permits us life, just like the contractor said, the government will support him and make sure that this project becomes a reality. I was discussing with authorities that we are going to talk to the Roads Minister to help us construct the roads that will lead to the Assembly to make it more efficient and accessible for everyone to visit the Assembly. My last advice is that, if this project is completed, we should all be able to protect the facility and ensure that it brings us benefits”, he said
