West Akyem makes significant progress in revenue mobilization


The West Akyem Municipal Assembly is showing strong revenue collection performance, exceeding its target for last year, by 27.45 per cent.

It had projected to mobilize GH¢733, 760.00 in internally-generated funds (IGF) but ended the year raking in GH¢935,213.70.

Mr. Seth Oduro Boadu, the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), announced this at a general meeting of the assembly held at Asamankese.

He said the achievement had come on the back of innovative ideas and measures they had put in place.

As of the end of February, this year, they had collected GH¢109,811.00 out of the GH¢136,292.67, they had budgeted.

The figure represented 80 per cent in terms of monthly cumulative performance.

Mr. Boadu said they would continue to push hard to mobilize more revenue to tackle the felt needs of the people in the area.

The assembly agreed to set up a revenue task force to make sure that every pesewa due it was collected.

The members also called for the erection of security check points on the major routes in the municipality to help give adequate protection to motorists and travellers.

They again called for strong support for the Rural Technology Facility and the Business Advisory Centre to organize trade shows for micro and small scale enterprises to build networks and expand their businesses.
