Kasoa (C/R) July 9,
GNA – Mr Michael Yaw Essuman Mensah, Awutu-East Municipal Chief Executive, has
commended Senior Citizens for their commitment and contributions to the
Assembly in the execution of development programmes.

Mr Mensah made the
commendation at a reception organised by the Municipal Assembly in honour of
150 Senior Citizens on Saturday, July 8, to commemorate the 57th Republic Day
celebration.

He noted that there
was concern about some people who because of their parochial interests
disregarded building laws and regulations to put up buildings on waters ways.

This uncalled for
behavior, he said had contributed to flooding in the area whenever it rained
heavily, claiming lives and displacing people.

Mr Mensah said the
Assembly had designed new mechanisms to make sure that building regulations
were strictly adhered to.

He said there were
also engagement with chiefs and caretakers of land to sensitise them on laws
and regulations pertaining to building and construction of temporary structures
among other things.

Madam Movies Awaa
Koomson, the Member of Parliament for the area and Minister for Special
Development and Initiative for the area in a speech read on her behalf,
congratulated the Senior Citizens for their selfless dedication to duty while
in active service towards the growth of the country.

She expressed the hope
that they would continue to support the government and the Assembly with
fruitful ideas and suggestion to execute their tasks to improve the livelihood
of the citizenry.

In an interview, some
of the Senior Citizens appealed to the Assembly to construct a recreation
centre to help them socialise with their counterparts.
