LEKMA SHOWCASES BETTER GHANA AGENDA AT YOUR DOOR STEPS OUTREACH PROGRAMME
The Ledzokuku- Krowor Municipal Assembly (LEKMA) has instituted a ‘Better Ghana Agenda Orientation’ programme to bring to the door step of residents, the Assembly’s p
olicy and programmes and also showcase its achievements to the larger community.
The concept is also to educate the public on the development agenda of the government and direct them to find solutions to problems in their localities.
The maiden programme held at Teshie took the form of photo exhibition, video shows and open forum which created a platform for the public to interact with officials of the Assembly.
The Municipal Chief Executive, Mr. Daniel Amartey Mensah, hinted that the programme would be replicated in all the 24 electoral areas in the municipality.
Mr. Mensah was of

the view that the programme would make residents appreciate the good works of the Assembly while creating awareness about completed and ongoing development projects undertaken by the Assembly in the last three and half years.
He said the programme would embrace the larger community as compared to the town-hall forum which was limited to a target group.
Mr. Mensah noted, that many people were ignorant of projects around them and, therefore, could not give their impressions about the government.
He said the Assembly had since 2009 to date under taken 18 projects ranging from health,education, sanitation, drainage systems and road networks, among others.
The projects according to him were financed by the Assembly from its internally generated fund.
Nine of the projects had been completed while six would be inaugurated by the end of June 2012, he indicated.
He said the Assembly was able to generate sufficient funds because it had been prudent in its expenditure and also identified loopholes in revenue generation.
Mr Mensah cited examples of successes in revenue generation, and stated that in the first quarter of the year, LEKMA realized over Gh¢505,000.
On education, Mr Mensah said the Assembly had completed nine school projects including a three storey dormitory block for the Teshie Presbyterian Senior High School and another three-storey dormitory blocks for Nungua Senior High School.
The MCE noted that the Assembly had provided drains and culverts all over the Municipality to facilitate the smooth flow of water to prevent flooding during heavy downpours adding that the
Assembly had approved various projects which would soon start to ensure good sanitation in the area.
These, he said included a two storey 40-seater WC facility at the Nungua market and three boreholes estimated to cost about Gh¢200, 000.
Mr Mensah said other areas which had also been awarded on contract included a ten-seater WC facility estimated at Gh¢52,000 each for the Teshie Jordan Methodist Community and the Teshie Cluster of Schools.
He was of the view that the extent of development in the Municipality had inspired the resident to pay their property, business and other rates without complaining.
