Member of Parliament for Upper West Akim, Derek Ohene Bekoe Asifo has urged the District Chief Executive of his constituency, Eugene Sackey to ensure that ongoing projects initiated by the Assembly are completed.

According to the Upper West Akim legislator, projects initiated by the previous Assembly under the previous National Democratic Congress is to ease the pressure of infrastructure deficit in the constituency hence the urgent need to complete all started projects.

He further pointed out that DCEs would come and go but projects in the Assembly will remain and should be completed.

The MP who is a former DCE of the area lamented over some projects he initiated with the District Assembly Common Fund that remains untouched over a year and three months by the current administration.

Mr. Derek Ohene Bekoe Asifo revealed this when he launched a community centre he donated to his constituent at Dante Winnang in his constituency and urged them to take good care of the facility.

And further disclosed that he started a three class room block in Katayensuah in the name of the Assembly before becoming an MP but the project has been abandoned.

He pointed out to the current DCE that using his share of the MP common fund to complete an Assembly project will not be appropriate hence his appeal to him.

The Upper West Akim lawmaker revealed that he had paid GH240,000.00 as school fees for some students in the constituency  and 34 young ladies have also been sponsored into hair dressing and fashion designing with sewing machines and hair dryers acquired and fees paid for young people to learn trade.

He further replaced a dilapidated bridge which was constructed during late Dr. Nkrumah’s era which used to aid personnel and logistical movement whenever it rains.

Queen mother of Fante Winnang, Nana Foriwa Amanfo, called on the MP to consider renovating their roads to ease movement and build a school block for the community to enhance teaching and learning.
