The hearings which took place at the various town and area council levels took management of the assembly to Amantin, Kokofu, Duabone, Kumfia, Fakwasi, Garadima, Kokrompe, Akokoa and Nyomoase.
The gatherings which attracted traditional authorities, assembly and unit committee members, opinion leaders as well as other residents afforded various communities the opportunity to place before the district chief executive Hon. Edward Owusu and other technocrats their problems in order of priority for consideration.
Hon. Edward Owusu told each gathering that the bottom-up approach to development is to get the communities to benefit from projects and programmes that really meet their needs and which they are likely to own.
He used the opportunity to brief the people on various government initiatives which include: free SHS, fertilizer subsidy, Zongo development fund, one district one factory as well as planting for food and jobs and how they can take advantage of them to better their lot.
Various communities led by their assembly or unit committee members enumerated problems facing them with education, health and road infrastructure cutting across.
While some communities had the provision of potable water and the extension of the school feeding programme on top of their agenda, some were more concerned with street lighting with others clamoring for the provision of electricity.
Problems associated with Fulani herdsmen also came to the fore.
The DCE promised to give some of the problem immediate attention while others are captured under the MTDP for redress.
