Mr John Majisi, Member of Parliament (MP) for Krachi Nchumuru on Saturday assured his constituents of Government’s commitment to develop the area.

He however said development would only take place when the people live in peace and unity.

Mr Majisi gave the assurance at the annual Kakrabi Festival celebrated by the chiefs and people of Anyinamae in the Krachi Nchumuru District of the Volta Region.

The 2013 celebration was on the theme: “Peaceful co-Existence for Development in Nchumuru Land.”

He said the theme of the celebration throws a challenge to the people to ensure that peace and unity prevails in whatever they do to ensure symbiotic and cordial relationship.

“I am personally happy about the rapid rate at which the District Assembly is working to provide development projects,” he said.

Mr Majisi said, he had collaborated with the District assembly to acquire 200 solar lanterns for the off grid communities.

The beneficiary communities would pay GH¢30 instead of GH¢100 as “Government pay’s the GH¢70 on their behalf”.

He said he had also secured 25 computers from the Ghana Investment Fund for Electronic Communication for the District Directorate of Education.

Mr Majisi said construction work on a six- classroom block at Banda Buya would commence next week, while the Assembly is facilitating the establishment of a community- based rehabilitation project for persons with disability in collaboration with SWEB Foundation in Accra.

He announced that he had officially received a letter indicating that the Krachi Nchumuru District is one of the 50 districts that would benefit from the national special school project.

Mr Solon Kuyoun, District Chief Executive noted that the pursuit of reconciliation and peaceful co-existence is one of the reasons for the celebration of festivals in some traditional areas.

He said peace is a vital ingredient for the implementation of development plans.
