Youths want Wa East Assembly to do business in Funsi

Some youths in Funsi, the capital of the Wa East District, on Monday demonstrated against officials of the District Assembly and heads of government departments for their refusal to stay at Funsi to transact government business.

The Old Students Association of the Funsi Junior High (OSAF) said monitoring the offices of the District  Assembly, it is almost impossible to find all staff present throughout the week.

The offices are almost always empty as many departments are being manned from their “own offices” in Wa and with no regards to lay down regulations pertaining to the creation of the district and their functions.

These concerns were raised in a communiqué issued and signed by Oswald Bayong, President of OSAF, at Funsi accusing the District Chief Executive Mr. Amenu Saliu, among others as the number culprit of the “offence”.

The Youths said excuses were previously made that their absence in Funsi to man government departments and agencies was due to the unavailability of electricity and potable water but those facilities had been provided and yet  the story is the same.

The demonstrators also raised concerns about the abandonment of  the Funsi Town Roads and called on the Government to bring back the contractor to restart the the tarring of the roads.

The youth said they were happy to hear that government had allocated a polyclinic to be constructed at Funsi but as at now the whereabouts and what had happened to that project is still a myth to the people.

The demonstrators have issued  Alhaji Issahaque Salia, the Upper West Regional Minister,a copy of their communiqué to address the concerns raised or else, subsequent demonstrations would be embarked to back their demands.

“We also resolve that by the end of the first quarter of 2012, if we do not have our poles wired and our township roads tarred, we will advise ourselves in this era of massive political activity”, the youth warned.
