District Chief Executive (DCE), Alexander Frimpong noted that the district has 198 towns and villages and emphasized that the District Assembly Common Fund (DACF) is not enough to cater for the needs of the communities for development.
The DCE therefore called on all the chiefs and people to help bring development to the District by starting a project in their communities and later seek help from the assembly to help complete the projects.

He added that about 107 primary schools and 75 JHS under his jurisdiction and almost half of these schools need a reconstruction
