Member of Parliament for Ahanta West Municipality, Ebenezer Kojo Kum has expressed great satisfaction with progress of work being taken on various projects in the area.
The projects which include the development of institutional water and toilet facilities, rural electrification, community centers, rehabilitation of classroom units, roads and mobile telephony connectivity, as captured under his common fund, and IPEP have been impressive.
In Gyabengkrom, through the MPs Common Fund, an abandoned community center [some 16 years old] have been rehabilitated and expanded. Work is at 90 percent complete and shall be completed in some few months’ time.
The Princess Aketakyi basic and junior high school have also benefited from a rural electrification funded by the GETFund. Teachers posted to the school have since the completion of a bungalow twelve years ago, turned down offers to be accommodated in the building to the non-availability of electricity. Pupils have for years been denied the opportunity to learn ICT even in this digital age to match up with academic requirements.
Among two other institutional toilet facilities being built in the district, the Chavene community’s like the rest are all at 45 percent completion. Hon. Kojo Kum believes that the work would be completed by mid of the year.
Speaking exclusively to Skyy News after an inspection tour yesterday, Mr Kojo Kum commended contractors working on these projects for the work done.
“I must say that the various projects dotted around the constituency have reach various stages of completion. If you take the institutional water projects for instance, you will realise that apart from the solar panels that are yet to be fixed, I think at the three locations; Beaho, Akatekyi and Agonafia- Fire Service, …you could see that once the solar panels are fixed, the people will begin to benefit from it”, he added.
Honourable Kojo Kum clarified that the firms contracted for the institutional water projects have been paid to allow them install the solar panels and other components this year, so that beneficiary communities could begin using them.
“I know that some monies were released latter part of last year to the contractors to enable them complete work. I want to believe that because of the Christmas festivity most of them their workers would have loved to go for holidays. I’m very confident that once that the yuletide is over they will come back and complete the work”, Hon. Kojo Kum stated.
