Afigya-Kwabre Assembly moves into own property

Kodie (Ash), Jan 07, GNA – After almost seven years of running its daily business from rented premises – part of a filling station, the Afigya-Kwabre District Assembly, has now moved into its own property, completed at the cost of GH₵240,000.00.

Mr. Kwaku Oppong-Kyekyeku Kaakyire, the District Chief Executive (DCE), told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) that this was a big relief.

The assembly would no longer be saddled with huge rent payment, something that would help to free funds to support the implementation of critical development projects in the various communities.

The district was created in year 2008 but without any seed money for office and residential accommodation.

Mr. Oppong-Kyekyeku said their newly constructed property ‘provides enough space’ to house its central administration – human resource, physical and development planning, finance, internal audit, works, radio and stores.

The assembly would continue to carry out its day-to-day administration from there until construction works on the main three-storey administration block was completed.

He expressed optimism that this could be ready within six months to bring both the decentralized and centralized units to operate from the same building.

Mr. Oppong-Kyekyeku said the assembly was making strong progress in its efforts to house its staff, adding that a total of 13 bungalows had already been completed. GNA
