He added that as part of their decision making process, the people should be consulted regularly as the power they hold were given to them by the people.

Dr. Emmanuel Lamptey made this remarks when he held a forum in his Municipality to explain to the people a year in office what he had been able to achieve.

Adding that, projects and programmes have been implemented in the areas of sanitation, roads, health care, agriculture and socio-economic condition of the people and completion of programmes started by the previous administration.

He also pointed out that a debt of one million, nine hundred and ninety-two thousand, four hundred and fifty-eight and eighty-eight pesewa (GHc1,992, 458.88) was left by the previous administration, adding 40 percent had been defrayed.

A lot of programmes and projects have gone on in the Municipality but the people are not aware of and this accounting to the peoples gives me the opportunity to explain to the people and take their suggestions on board, he said.
