District Chief Executive (DCE) for Asuogyaman District Assembly in the Eastern
Region, Samuel Kwame Agyekum has debunked the assertion that the government has
deliberately abandoned all projects commenced under the previous administration
in the district for political reasons.
"It is important that I emphasize that this government has not abandoned any project commenced by the previous administration in Asuogyaman District. Rather, we have worked to ensure that all the projects we inherited are completed and put to use by the people because it is the taxpayer's money that has been put in there," he stressed.
He made these remarks when he addressed the Assembly's first Meet the Press Series at Atimpoku, in the Eastern Region.
"We inherited 12 projects from the NDC of which some have been completed whereas others are still ongoing since we don't want government funds to go waste. There are other projects too that are under construction under my watch" he told the media.
“Abandoned projects which have been completed and commissioned under my watch includes, 6 units Classroom Block at Serdom, 6 unit Classroom Block at Senchi Methodist School, Fourteen (14) Seater Toilet Facility - Apeguso Dwenasi (Rands Buildus ltd), Completed and yet to be commission Business Resource Centre at Senchi and a host of others.
He said the Assembly is positioned to complement Government’s agenda to bring development to the doorsteps of our constituents in the area of Education, Health, Water and Sanitation, Infrastructure development to improve the economic and living conditions of the citizenry.
