Mr Emmanuel Armah-Kofi Buah, Member of Parliament (MP) for Ellembelle, has reassured Ghanaians that rural development remained the hallmark of the government.

Ghanaians, therefore, owed it a constitutional duty to iron out their differences and rally behind the government to execute its manifesto.

Mr Kofi Buah, the Minister of Energy and Petroleum Resources, said this during a three-day working tour of 12 communities in the northern part of the Ellembelle District to interact with the chiefs and people there.

He toured Adiembra, Anloga, Asoredanho, Kroboline, Amrahyea, Kwasikrom, Asomasi, Dadwen, New Agyei-Obeng Krom, Sentaso, Ewerekokrom, Bonsukrom, Aidoosuazo and Mandumgbane.

The MP conveyed the gratitude of the government to the people for their support during the 2012 general elections.

He inspected on-going electrification projects, explained government’s policies and gave the assurance that the government would not relent in its efforts to develop the country.

Nana Dotse, Chief of New Adiembra, appealed to government to ensure the contractor sped up work on the 4-kilometre m Aiyinasi-Atababo-Kwesikrom road to pave way for the transportation of cocoa from the northern part of the district to Aiyinasi through to Nkroful, the district capital.

Nana Dotse urged the MP and Government to award on contract feeder roads such as New Basake to Krobo Line, Asomasi to Dadwen, Asomasi to New Adiembra, Aidoo Suazo to Sentaso and Kwesi krom and Ewereko to Aidoo Suazo.
