Fawohoyeden (B/A), April 30, GNA - The chiefs and people of Fawohoyeden , a cocoa growing community in the Asunafo North Municipality, have appealed to the government and benevolent organizations to support it complete the construction of a police post.
According to Okokudurofour Boakye Danquah, the Chief of Fawohoyeden, the community initiated the construction works on the project in 2007 but could not continue because of lack of funds.
He said the project, which is about 50 per cent complete, is at the roofing stage but left at the mercy of the weather. The Police post is estimated to cost about GH¢65,000.
Okokudurofour Boakye Danquah made the appeal when some journalists from the GNA visited the community to introduce the agency's media auditing and tracking of development at the district and community levels being funded by STAR-Ghana to improve public accountability by duty bearers to the people.
The Fawohoyeden community hasbeen selected by the GNA team assigned to the Goaso Municipality for the implementation of the 14-month project which also seeks to enhance the capacity of GNA reporters in media auditing and tracking of development projects.
He said the people had officially written to the Municipal Assembly for support but to no avail and appealed to non-governmental and civil society organizations to support them.
Okokudurofour Boakye Danquah said population in the area stood at about 7000 but because of lack of a police post stealing and armed robbery were rampant in the area.
He said the only police station in the area was located at Ayomso which is very far from the Fawohoyeden community.
