Nana Mensah-Takyi noted that the District Assembly was making effort to eliminate schools under-trees with the provision of classroom blocks for selected communities.

“The District Assembly has provided 7,400 mono and double desk to various schools in the district to the shortage of desk in schools,” he added.

On the development of health care delivery in the district, the DCE said they have built a clinic and nurses’ quarters to accommodate newly posted nurses to the community.

Again on child labour related issues, the DCE said his outfit was collaborating with other partners to eliminate its worst forms through education in the communities.

He explained that since the Assembly was a new one revenue generation was low and they would focus on awareness creation for the communities to know the importance of paying toll to the Assembly for the development of the district.

The District has also been allocated 10 boreholes project.
