Traditional ruler provides 30-acre-land for newly created District Assembly

Nana Obeng Asante, Omankrado of Coaltar has offered 30 acres of land between his town and Laa Mangoase for the construction of offices for the newly created District Assembly for the Ayensuano Constituency.

The assembly building would comprise of hospital, police station, assembly hall, District Chief Executive bungalow and staff quarters.

Nana Obeng Asante said this at a meeting organised by the chiefs and people of Coaltar at the weekend to deliberate on the way forward for the newly created district for the area.

In an interview later with the GNA at Coaltar, Nana Obeng advised the people to consider providing communal labour to help give a face-lift for the area before the government starts its infrastructural development in the town.

Mr Samuel Fleischer-Kwabi, the Suhum-Kraboa-Coaltar District Chief Executive and Mr Samuel Ayeh-Paye, Member of Parliament for Ayensuano Constituency, guests of honour for the occasion expressed gratitude to Nana Obeng for his gesture and called on other chiefs to emulate his example.

Mr Fleischer-Kwabi called on the people to come together to fight underdevelopment in the area since the government had found it prudent to create new district for them so that their immediate needs could be accommodated.

Mr Ayeh-Paye told the people that it has been a long battle to get a new district assembly and now that it has arrived, it was important for them to do away with chieftaincy and land disputes and come together to support the government for the rapid development of the area.
