Adaklu chiefs to reserve lands for development

Mr. Emmanuel Sky Ganaku, District Chief Executive of Adaklu has appealed to chiefs in the district to reserve lands for development projects.

Mr. Ganaku made the appeal over the weekend, when he met the chiefs and people of Adaklu Kodzobi, as part of his working tour of the district.

Some of the communities he visited were Adaklu Kpodzi, Waya, Torda, Akpatovoe, Sofa, Anfoe, Kodzobi and Ahunda.

He said the new district would soon be transformed,   but “we need land and revenue for the numerous development projects envisaged”.

Mr Ganaku asked the people to let their joy in the creation of the district reflect in the payment of fees and levies instituted by the Assembly to give it a sound financial foundation.

“Let us resolve to create our own wealth as a way of telling the world that we are ready for what we fought for”, Mr. Ganaku said.

He said all new Primary and Junior High Schools in the district will have libraries and hold inter-schools quiz competitions, instituted as part of efforts to improve the standard of education in the district.

Mr. Ganaku said “education is no longer the key to success but has become the gold mine of success and the surest way to eradicate poverty, ignorance and disease in the district”.

He therefore entreated parents to invest in their children’s education and assured teachers of the support of the Assembly to enable them to maximize their efforts at improving the standard of education in the district.

Mr. Ganaku said a number of access roads including the Kodzobi-Dzakpo-Helekpe, Kodzobi-Tsriefe and Dave-Gbleve-Tsriefe roads, would be constructed, while those of Akuete-Waya-Ablornu, Tsriefe-Abuadi-Waya and Waya-Torda-Ziope would be reshaped to improve commercial and social activities in the district.

He pledged to work with the traditional authorities in the district and called for their support “as custodians of the land”.

Togbe Dzegblade IV, Chief of Kodzobi appealed to the people to nurture the Assembly into a financially strong institution rather than saddling it with too many requests.
