The Kwahu Afram Plains South District Assembly has commissioned three (3) communities electricity project in fulfillment of the people’s long-awaited dream of also enjoying the national grid.
Koranteng, Kwasi Kumah and Gadorkope have been part of the remote communities in the Kwahu Afram Plains South District that has been longing to be hooked unto the national grid several years now.
Commissioning the project, Mr George Ofori, the Kwahu Afram Plains District Chief Executive (DCE) noted that the contract was awarded by the previous government but could not be executed due to the non-payment of the contractor.
He noted that realising how badly the people needed the electricity, the present government found the money for the contractor to execute the project.
“As we hand over the project to you today for use, I want to caution that just as we are happy to enjoy the benefits, we should also be weary of the danger involved and adopt best practices to protect lives and property”, he advised.
Mr George Ofori further distributed household bulbs to the people and mentioned that, the light apart from brightening their rooms for them also presented them with the opportunity to use it to do business and better their lots.
He promised that the Assembly would soon provide street lights to enhance security in the community.
The DCE noted that these communities still lacked a number of developmental interventions including a communication network to make life comfortable for them and appealed to them to vote to retain the government in power for it to address the remaining developmental needs of the community.
The Chief of these communities thanked the DCE, Hon Geoge Ofori for subsidizing Electricity meters for them, adding that, the singular gesture made it possible for every household to own a meter.
