District Chief Executive (DCE) for Central Tongu, Thomas Moore Zonyrah has touted his achievements as DCE saying, he was the first to have exceeded the Assembly’s revenue target since the creation of the district.
Mr. Zonyrah disclosed this on Tuesday when Dela Radio, based in the district capital, Adidome, organised a town hall meeting for him to account for his two years in office.
He said the assembly set a target of 140 per cent for this year but had already exceeded this target and that market stalls and lockable shops were under construction at the Mafi Kumase Market in the district to help boost revenue.
The DCE mentioned over 40 projects which the assembly executed within 2 years and with some at different stages of completion in the district.
In the health sector, he mentioned Dove, Anfoe and Kpogadzi CHPS zones as successes chalked while in education, Mafi Akyemfo, Srekpe, Avedo, Avakpedome and Mafi Kumase kindergarten were at various stages of completion.
He also disclosed that more than 20 communities had been connected to the national Grid with potable water extended to some rural areas while others benefited from boreholes.
In the area of transportation, he said “different town roads have also been worked on in the district.”
Mr. Zonyrah touched on sanitation saying, open defecation has been a worry to the district over the years and assured that about 15 institutional WC facilities were being constructed to arrest the situation.
On government’s flagship programme, 1 District-1 Factory, he intimated that more than 3 different organisations were in the district with about 8,000 jobs being created.
The town hall meeting which attracted lots of citizens was also attended by heads of departments and other key stakeholders in the district.
