The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of Kwahu West Municipal Assembly, Alex Obeng Somuah has slammed businessmen and investors for failing to contribute financially to developmental projects in the area.
According to him, Kwahu investors mostly focus on competitions among themselves by establishing mansions.
He fumed that there are major developmental projects which are needed within Kwahu lands, saying these investors have turned a blind eye on promoting Kwahu.
‘Let’s stop the constructions of big hotels, let’s stop buying expensive cars and help the development of Kwahu especially within education and health sector,’ he entreated
According to him, government alone cannot help provide all needs, urging investors, individuals, churches, politicians, well known businessmen and women to assist the assembly and the needy to help give Kwahu a facelift.
‘Among schools like Nkawkaw Methodist, Anglican, Presby and Akuamoah Acheampong, we have many Kwahu investors who took their education within these schools but none of them have even tried to look back to the school to help,’ he fumed.
He made these remarks during the commissioning of a two classroom block for the Nkawkaw Anglican Kindergarten school built by 1965 year old group in honour of Ex-head teachers of the school, Mr. and Mrs.Wilson Anoff Ntow.
Agoo news’ Ebenezer Kojo Nyavor reports that the 1965 year group deemed it most expedient in dedicating the classroom block in honour of the ex-head teachers whose meritorious dedication and valour in execution of service have had great impact on both the school and its past students.
Mr. Somuah expressed appreciation to the old students, declaring the day as the happiest day in his life.
He advised teachers and students to take their service and learning serious in order to add value to educational system in Kwahu.
He promised to provide new chairs to support the newly commissioned school.
On his part, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Nkawkaw Constituency, Hon Kwarkye Darffour who supported the allegation made by the MCE in his keynote address advised investors to support projects in the area.
‘It is advisable to build those beautiful buildings in the lands of Kwahu, but the extra fund should be used to help provide development within Kwahu lands,’ he encouraged.
