The Okaikwei North Municipal (ONMA) Chief Executive, Nii Boye Laryea says all projects initiated by the Assembly would be fully executed.
According to him, the Assembly has enough funds to carry through all its proposed projects.
Mr. Laryea wondered how he would invite dignities for sod cutting of projects only for it to stall months after.
Briefing the media on the progresses and challenges of the Assembly at a news conference in Accra, the Okaikwei North Municipal Chief Executive said the Assembly lacks land to execute its projects.
He explained that there is no land available in the Municipality to enable the Assembly carry through its projects and initiatives as expected.
Mr. Laryea noted that the Assembly has chalked a lot of successes including community enjoyments with residents, health screening for staff, improvement of security situation in the municipality, distribution of educational materials to schools within the Municipality, vocational skills training for Persons Living With Disabilities (PLWD’s) among others.
Mr. Laryea noted that ONMA this year did not record any case of drowning in the raining season.
This he said could be attributed to the weekly desilting of drains and gutters in the municipality which costs the Assembly between GH¢3,000 to GH¢5,000.
On the impending referendum, Mr. Laryea said the Assembly’s Campaign Team is drawing up a strategy to whip up public education in order to get to get people to vote yes.
He said the Assembly in addition has been visiting churches and other places to sensitize the public on that event.
The ONMA MCE said the Assembly has for this reason set November 19 and 20 for a special Town Hall Meeting for discussion on the referendum.
Earlier, the ONMA MCE together with Mr. Fuseni Issah, the Member of Parliament for Okaikwei North cut the sod for four different projects in various communities within the Municipality.
These are GH¢ 735,267.793 ICT and Library facility for the Fadama cluster of schools, Construction of a three story 18 unit Classroom block for Achimota Anglican School worth GH¢4,090,945.86; constitution of ultra-modern clinic at Christian Village estimated at GH¢1,933,695 and a GH¢1,447,930.59 worth of Fire & Ambulance Station.
