A state-of-the-art administration block complex, comprising 21 offices and other facilities for the staff of the Sene West District Assembly has been commissioned at Kajaji.


The building, constructed at the cost of GH₵163,000.00, is expected to accommodate all the unit heads and 90 per cent of the heads of department.


In an address at the commissioning ceremony, Mr Kwaku Asomah-Cheremeh, Brong Ahafo Regional Minister, expressed appreciation to the chiefs for providing a litigation-free land for the Assembly offices to be put up. 


Mr Asomah-Cheremeh also commended the Presiding Member of the Assembly and all the Assembly Members for their support that enabled the project to be completed on schedule, and urged them to ensure that the building was properly maintained.


The Minister also thanked the chiefs and the Assembly Members for the confirmation of Mr Abraham Mbanye as District Chief Executive (DCE) for Sene West.


He disclosed that plans were far advanced for the construction and tarring of the roads from Atebubu to Kwame Danso and from Kwame Danso to Kajaji, adding that government had started fulfilling some of the election promises. 


He mentioned, for example, the restoration of the nurses and teachers allowances. 


On the nurses’ allowances, Mr Asomah-Cheremeh said 58,000 students were benefitting from the policy on which government would be spending GH₵236 million annually.


The Minister appealed to the Chiefs to make land available for the implementation of government interventions such as One District-One Dam, One District-One Factory, One District-One Warehouse and the Planting for Food and Jobs programmes.


He indicated that government was ready to pay for all the bills of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) and to repackage it well.


Mr Asomah-Cheremeh, therefore, asked the people to continue to support government in its development agenda and appealed to the chiefs to channel their grievances, if any, to the District Chief Executive for dialogue and action and forward those that were beyond the DCE to the regional administration.


The DCE for Sene West, Mr Abraham Mbanye, in his remarks, disclosed that the Assembly had donated 150 beds to the Senior High School (SHS) in the area as part of its contribution to the implementation of the Free SHS Policy.


Mr Mbanye also made it known that text books and 20 per cent of the feeding grant had also been delivered to the school as promised by government. 


On power supply to the district, he said rural electrification was ongoing in the communities to provide the people with electricity.


He commended the security agencies, chiefs and the Assembly Members for ensuring peace and tranquility in the area.


Nana Kronko Osore Sunkwa, Kyidomhene of Sene West, also commended government for the various social intervention programmes that it was implementing.
