The West Mamprusi Municipal Assembly has not been left out of the government’s developmental agenda as it has received a fair share of the national cake in terms of projects, Mr Abu Mohammed, Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of the area has said.
Mr Mohammed mentioned a number of projects in the areas of education, dams and roads construction saying they had helped the people of the area to improve their agricultural production amongst other business activities.
He said this when interacting with journalists at Walewale to enumerate some of the projects, the government had undertaken in the West Mamprusi Municipality of the North East Region to address the needs of the people.
Mr Mohammed said the first phase of construction works on Walewale town roads had begun adding the second phase would soon begin to cover more areas within the municipality.
He mentioned other roads that were being constructed, as Nasia to Janga, Nasia to Kparigunima, and Walewale to Wungu, where bridges have been constructed on the Suria Road across the river helping farmers to undertake their business.
The others are; Nasia to Fio Road, a stretch considered as an overseas area, where 13 culverts were constructed to improve the condition of the road making it easy for especially rice farmers to travel across to undertake rice cultivation.
Mr Mohammed who also spoke about One-Village One-Dam said the Assembly had set out to construct 10 of the dams, but had so far completed six, which included; the Nabari and Tinguri Dams.
He said three others including; Wungu, and Nasia Dams were under construction, while work was yet to start on the remaining one.
In the area of education, Mr Mohammed said the Assembly had re-roofed seven basic schools that were ripped up following a rainstorm.
He, however, said some basic schools in the Assembly did not have furniture, but added that Vice President Dr Bawumia, who hailed from the area, and the Member of Parliament of the area assisted some of the schools with furniture, while the Assembly was also making efforts to support such schools.
He appealed to well-meaning indigenes of the area amongst other organisations to support the Assembly in its quest to resource basic schools in the area with furniture to improve teaching and learning.
Mr Mohammed commended the people of the Assembly for embracing peace appealing to them to be patient as development was a gradual process assuring that they would have what was due them.
