The Assin South District Assembly has highlighted some key infrastructural development that are transforming lives in the district since 2019.

The basic physical and organisational structures had closed the infrastructure gap and opened up the area to facilitate trade, investments, agriculture and other supporting economic activities.

The projects include construction works on a three-unit classroom block with office, store and semi-detach Teachers’ accommodation at Wankoso, Assin-Kasim, Assin-Beyeden and Assin-Abaasi.

Madam Felicia Ntrakwa Amissah, the District Chief Executive, told the Ghana News Agency that the projects were being funded by the Government, through loans, grants and from multi-pool donor agencies.

They were disability-friendly and strategically built at deprived schools to put an end to learning under sheds and dilapidated structures.

Touching on health, she said the Assembly had completed a Community-Based Health Planning Service (CHPS) Compound at Assin-Adubiease, Assin-Sargentkrom and Assin-Nkubem.

Each has a main clinic, two separate one-bedroom staff accommodation and an out-patient area to bring primary healthcare to the doorstep of the communities, improve health outcomes, and reduce maternal and neonatal mortalities.

Madam Amissah confirmed the completion of mechanised boreholes with stand pipes at Nyankumasi-Ahenkro, Darmang, Andoe as well as Adiembra Market.

“These are manifestation of government’s resolve to bring development to all, regardless of location or political persuasion,” she said.

The move seeks to ensure universal access to safe and affordable drinking water by investing in adequate infrastructure, provide sanitation facilities and encourage hygiene at every level as stipulated in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

On road construction, Madam Amissah said
the Assembly had reshaped many feeder roads to facilitate easy carting of farm produce to the market centres.

That included the construction of about 12 kilometers district roads and a footbridge at Assin-Odomase, she said.
