Traditional rulers in the northern part of Ellembele District in the Western Region have commended the DCE for the area, Kwasi Bonzoh, and the governing NPP for reconstructing deplorable road networks in the district.
The chiefs say they will remain grateful to Mr Bonzoh for impressing on government to reconstruct road networks in their remote cocoa growing area to link southern part of the district.
At a meeting with some Feeder Road engineers, who recently visited the area to inspect ongoing construction works, the chiefs took turns to laud the efforts of the DCE.
Mr Odikro Dotse, chief of the Ewe dominated Awiunaga community, thanked the DCE, saying “his efforts are commendable, and excavators can now be seen busily working on Ellembele North roads”.
According to him, although he relocated to the area some fifty years ago, this is his first time of seeing an excavator on the roads. Mr Dotse lamented the neglect of Ellembele North over the years by previous governments.
The DCE also called on the Aunyinase North community, and appealed to the residents to support the ruling NPP pursue its developmental agenda in the area.
To this end, he urged them to support the contractors by willingly clearing all structures or farms to be affected by the road construction works.
He also reminded the residents that nobody will be compensated for damage caused to his or her property.
Nana Kofi Adjei, chief of Sentaso, where the road construction works began, pointed out that his subjects initially thought the 81km GNPC funded project was a hoax until work began.
“I pray for God’s blessing for Mr Bonzoh to become the next Member of Parliament for Ellembele after three failed attempts. Your efforts will never be in vain. God will surely reward and honour you,” he said.
