On 30th April, 2021, the Bono East Regional Minister, Hon Kwasi Adu-Gyan, embarked on two separate field visits to get first-hand information on some developments out there.
The first place he visited was at the Techiman market where some stores burned couple of weeks ago. He charged the committee tasked to investigate the cause of the fire to speed up then investigations and also asked for implementation of findings from a similar outbreak at the market place couple of months earlier.
He also seized the opportunity to discuss with the transport unions leadership how best to decongest the lorry stations and the market in general.
The transport unions were happy for the Minister’s unannounced visit. They appealed to the Minister to help them decongest the market for them.
The second visit was at Nkoranza where he inspected the ongoing asphalting of the town roads.
The MP for Nkoranza South was touting the town roads construction as his personal project which was generating a lot of political discomfort in the Municipality.
The inspection was led by the Regional Director of Urban Roads together with the Site Engineer.
At end of the day it was explained to the media that, the project was purely government awarded and funded by the COCOBOD even though it started in 2015 no single payment was made until NPP assumed office.
The NPP Regional Chairman, Thomas Adu and the MCE for the area Ataah Kissiwaa and the DCE for Nkoranza North, were in attendance.
Earlier in the day, the Minister chaired a meeting on digitilisation for the four Municipalities in the region. It forms part of the government’s agenda to digitised the economy.
The assemblies were urged to facilitate the implementation of digitising their revenue mobilisation activities.
They were taking through some few slides presented by the regional rep for GIZ.
