KNWD Assembly to Get New Office Complex Soon 

The Kassena-Nankana West District Assembly in the Upper East Region will soon relocate into a modern two-storey office complex located off the Y-junction point on the Paga- Nakolo-Navio road.


The Assembly was carved out of the Kassena-Nankana Municipality in 2007 and inaugurated on February 29, 2008, having been established by Legislative Instrument (L.I) 1855.


However, since its establishment, the Assembly has been operating from an old town council building in Paga, capital of the district. But this will soon change as the Upper East Regional Minister, Madam Tangoba Abayage has inspected construction works on the new office complex.


When the minister visited the project site on Wednesday as part of her tour of the 15 districts in the region, the superstructure had taken shape, stairs constructed and the first floor was cast while pillars were erected for laying the second and last floor to the building.


While in Paga, the minister inspected a 20-bed maternity block and children’s ward at the Paga Health Centre that was constructed and furnished by the Assembly.


District Director of Health Services, Madam Juliana Anam-erime, who guided the minister round the health facility announced that for the past three years, the district had not recorded any maternal death. She said the health centre had the needed human resource and adequate installations to qualify as a full hospital. She, thus, appealed to the regional minister to help push for its upgrading to a hospital status and also, assist in providing additional modern health equipment to enhance service delivery.


Madam Abayage in response, commended the staff of the centre for their zero records in maternal deaths and pledged to lobby the Ministry of Health and the Rebecca Foundation to extend some support to the facility.


She later joined the District Chief Executive (DCE), Mr. Gerard Ataogye, to present 95 pieces of dual desks to the Paga R/C Primary School and 30 pieces of same to an English-and-Arabic school. The DCE disclosed that the Assembly had distributed some 1,500 dual desks to 20 selected schools in the district.


The minister later visited Bongo District where she inspected a warehouse in Bogrigo, a CHPS Compound in Soe-Sanabisi, a 10-seat pour-flush toilet at the Soe market and ongoing redevelopment works at the Soe main market.


At the Bolgatanga Municipality, the regional minister, accompanied by the chief executive, Mr Joseph Amiyuure, inspected a modern abattoir completed and commissioned in December 2018.
