Togbe Agah Suemeglo, Noryaa Mantse of Sarpeiman near Amasaman in the Ga West Municipality, has appealed to chiefs and people in the country to use festivals to generate development programmes for their communities.

Togbe Agah Suemeglo, who is also a herbalist, made the call at Sarpeiman Faase during the annual Yam Festival for his shrine “Tromakui” with the chiefs and people in the area.

He said through his own initiatives he had completed several developmental projects for the people of Sarpeiman and other nearby communities.

The development chief took the GNA round to inspect some of the projects which included the construction of a 12-seater KVIP toilet, four boreholes and a temporary wooden bridge over River Manchie in Sarpeiman.

He said the provision of the bridge would alleviate the plight of the people, especially the school children during the rainy season and also aid farmers in carting their produce to marketing centres.

Togbe Agah Suemeglo said he had acquired a land at Kofi Kwei for the construction of a teachers’ bungalow to accommodate teachers who are posted to the area and thereby promote good teaching and learning.

He said he would soon donate some computers to the Sarpeiman Junior High School and help support the teaching and learning of Information Communication Technology (ICT).

Nii Sarpei Agbetekor III, the Sarpeiman Mantse, who chaired the function commended Togbe Suemeglo for his contributions towards the projects in the community and called on others to emulate his shining example in coming to their aid with other social amenities.
