Akyem Oda, Nov. 30, GNA - Ms Ophelia Koomson, the Birim Central Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), has said the Municipality was moving forward in the right direction since the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government assumed power in 2009.
She said the Municipality was lagging behind in development projects over the years but the NDC government úis moving forward in the right directionĚ to ensure that people in the area are not denied the needed infrastructure development to make life more meaningful to them.
Ms Koomson, who was inaugurating the rehabilitated Akyem Oda Lorry Park on Friday, assured the people that the government would not deny them their share of the national cake.
Ms Koomson said the government would not renege on its campaign promises and appealed to the electorate to renew the mandate of the NDC.
She said the NDC had a track record of bringing development and urged the electorate to vote for a leader who is credible and had good record to move the nation forward.
Ms Koomson said the election was not about war and appealed to Ghanaians to tolerate each otherôs views.
úLet us search diligently for peace that leads to development, progress and prosperity,Ě she said, stressing that there is the need for unity in the country since disunity often leads to serious consequences.
Obrempong Gyemfi Sarfo 11, the Krontihene of the Akyem Kotoku Traditional Area, commended the MCE on her good leadership qualities which had enabled the Municipality to see much improvement in the provision of basic amenities.
He appealed to the people to put the past behind them and to unite towards the speedy development of the area.
A cross section of drivers and traders told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in an interview that they were happy about the new outlook of the lorry park.
They noted that hitherto it was difficult for them to ply their trade at the station anytime it rained but now with the rehabilitation they could do business at anytime.
They therefore thanked the MCE and the Municipal Assembly for their foresight in rehabilitation the park and urged them not to rest on their oars.
