The Gomoa West District Chief Executive (DCE) Hon. Bismark Baisie Nkum, has on the 21st June 2022 embarked on a day’s working visit to some communities in the district.
The visit took him and his team to Gomoa Fomena and Okwahu respectively. In a remarks by the Odikro of Okwahu Nana Sekyi Ababio torched on some challenges facing the community.
Firstly, the deplorable road network in the community needs urgent rehabilitation. He urged the DCE to mandate contractors to do effective work when assigned the job.
Again, Nana requested for befitting classroom block for the community since the existing one is at the verge of collapsing.
The lack of teachers in the school is a worrying situation. Access to health care delivery is another major challenge and requested for at least a CHPS compound for the community.
He recounted how the people have been levied to put up a community centre and requested for some cement support to complete the project.
The DCE Hon. Bismark Baisie Nkum, in response to the numerous needs and requests made by the chief, assured the community of the Assembly’s massive support and will ensure everything within their capacity will be done. He therefore promised to support the community with (50) bags of cement and a trip of gravels for the completion of the project.
On education The DCE promise to support the community with some dual desk and gave the assurance that more teachers will be made available to the school as and when they are posted in the district. However, he tasked the community to employ the services of SHS graduates to assist in that direction with some monthly contributions from the community, and he in turn will support with Gh¢300 monthly to cater for them.
He then presented 25 dual desks to the community and 5 KG tables and chairs which can take about forty children at a time.
In an appreciation to the gesture the Sanahen of Okwahu Nana Asiedu Benya I, express gratitude on behalf of the community to the DCE and the Assembly. Hoping that with time all their needs will be met.
