Kwahu West Municipal Assembly orients zonal council members
The Kwahu West Municipal Assembly organised a one-day orientation and training program for members of the various zonal councils on decentralisation concepts.
Hon. Yaw Owusu Addo, the Municipal Chief Executive, as a speaker at the event which was held at the Ebenezer Methodist Church, told the councillors to make regular contacts with the the chiefs and queens of their areas because they play critical roles in the development process. Hon. Yaw Addo said the reason why they had to do so was to identify and address the development needs of their communities.
The MCE noted that to reduce rumor mongering among members of the communities that seem to thwart development efforts, the councillors have to be transparent in their decision making.
He further told them to be united and cooperate with opinion leaders, burying their differences and swallowing their prides to facilitate development in their localities.
Mr. Joseph Krampah, the Municipal Environmental Health Officer, said during his presentation that every community shall be responsible for establishing communication norms and ensuring that individual and households comply with these norms to live healthy lives.
He added that communities will also be responsible for monitoring its sanitation progress.
In his closing remarks, the MCE expressed gratitude to the people and the Assembly for the confidence they have put in the zonal councillors and prayed that with their support, they would be able to work towards addressing the exigent development needs of their communities.
