I received into my office, the Oti Regional Police boss in the person of Commander Charles Dormanban. Myself and the security capo engaged in fruitful conversations that will mutually benefit the Ghana Police Service and the people of Biakoye.
BDA Engineers conducted an inspection on a rented premise for the purposes of housing a satellite NHIS office and destroyed sheds at the Abotoase Fish Market for the necessary action to be taken.
On a special visit, I paid homage to one of the great women of our time; Madam Dora Sampong. Dora who was indisposed for a period of time was hail and hearty when I visited her at her Tepo residence. I thanked God for her life and wished her well.
I honoured an invitation to a meeting held by queenmothers within the Nkonya Traditional Area at Kadjebi. During the closed door meeting, the queenmothers laid before me, matters of great importance to them. They didn’t mince words at all, when it got to the dysfunctional Nkonya market. They asked that the market should be built for them so to revamp the economic status of their women. In response, I told them that, the site for the construction of additional stalls and warehouses have been cleared with the support of the 3 assemblymen for the area, who actively involved their youth.
Construction will start very soon, as the contractor visited the site some few weeks ago.
Later in the day, I attended a meeting in respect of Cattle Herdsmen, land owners and farmers. The meeting was to listen to the various issues bothering on invasion on our lands by herdsmen and find amicable solutions to it. The meeting, being the second in some weeks ago, had some Nananom attending too.
On my way to work after observing a Cleanup Exercise in Worawora, I met a group of women who were on their way to mourn with a colleague who had lost her mother and interacted with them, giving them briefings on the need to observe the Covid protocols and also the very essence of the introduction of the E-levy, by the government. I encountered them to support government in this course so we achieve a lot through our economic and infrastructural drive.
Still on my way to work, I made a random stop at the AkaaYaw DA Primary School and checked on the school authorities and pupils. During the interactions, it came to light that, they need more classrooms and sales point.
I got to realize that the Community does not allow the children to fetch water to be drank during school hours. These I promised to do something about.
Management Meeting Part 2
The District’s IT Engineer led a team to put in readiness one of our NHIS Satelite office at Abotoase.
Educate Biakoye, a team of educationist put together by me, for the purposes of using education as a driving force for the socio-economic development of our district Biakoye, the 9 member Team, went on radio simultaneously and briefed listeners on what their mission is.
They shared with listeners, amongst many of their offers, the fact that ICT will be common amongst students and pupils and where need be, empower the teachers to make teaching joyous.
I chaired a fundraising ceremony at EP Church Kwamekrom in respect of the celebration of Education week in Biakoye.
