Addressing the Assembly members at Bongo, the DCE said the District which was created in 1998, continues to enjoy high levels of development in several areas including education, water and sanitation, health, roads and electricity.
We should not allow party politics to cloud over our development agenda. Charting that path may lead us to doing a disservice to our people.
Our duty here is to provide services to the benefit of our people. I am appealing to all of us to put our political differences behind us. We must commit ourselves to ensuring healthy debates, devoid of acrimony, backbiting, unfounded allegations and pull-him down syndrome, he said.

Education Service to enhance teaching and learning.
On Health, the DCE said the Assembly has used the District Assembly Common Fund (DACF), to build 36 functional zones CHPs compounds and commended the District Health Management Team for their hard work.
He said under the Agriculture sector, the Assembly with support from the Spanish Government had commenced the construction of underground water (mechanized boreholes) for sprinkler irrigation at Tankoo and Beo-Nayire and also established a weather station at the Agriculture office premises.
On dams, the Ghana Social Opportunity Project has awarded contracts for the rehabilitation of the
