Vice President inaugurates GH¢75,000 meat-shop
The shop, funded by the District Development Fund (DDF) with a capacity for 42 butchers at a time, has an office, store (refrigeration) and dressing rooms.
Vice President Mahama told a durbar attended by staff and members of the assembly, market women and butchers that numerous projects that had been executed all over the country within the last two years of the government were evidence in fulfilment of President Mills’ “Better Ghana Agenda”.
He said what had been publicized by the media from the regional tours of the President showed about one-fourth of the number of projects done.
Touching on the state of affairs within the National Democratic Congress (NDC) the Vice-President appealed to party members and supporters not to be frightened and despair as a result of storms of bickering and complains raging in the party.
“Probably the party was destined to go through that and come out even stronger and more united,” he said.
Vice President Mahama said as a human institution the current situation of the party was not a new thing in an organisation since political parties, constituting shades of opinions and divergent views, were bound to go through such circumstances at one point or the other.
In a response to an earlier request by Mr. Alex Kyeremeh, the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE, Vice President Mahama gave the assurance that the government had taken delivery of fire tenders and that the municipality would definitely be allocated with one.
Mr. Kyeremeh gave an account of projects undertaken by his administration in the Municipality and therefore described the meat shop as “uniquely built”.
They included reshaping of access roads, building of school blocks and construction of bore-holes and a nursing training college at the cost of GH¢130,000.00 that will begin academic work in August.
The MCE appealed for further financial assistance to construct a modern slaughter house.
