The Minister was inaugurating a 54 newly-elected Assembly members

of the Atwima-Mponua District Assembly at Nyinahin.

Alhaji Dauda underscored the need for the Assembly to step up their

revenue generation efforts not only to fund development projects but to

meet recurrent expenditure and stop the over reliance of the district

Assembly Common Fund (DACF) and other government grants.

He asked the Assembly to do more to solve sanitation challenges in

the area and said protecting the health of the people is of prime

concern to the government.
