Nsaba (CR), Aug. 4, GNA – Osabarima Boappiah
Afriyie, Omanhene of the Nsaba Traditional Area, has cut the sod for work to
begin on the construction of a GH¢500,000.00 social center.

The Omanhene was assisted by Mr Dennis
Armah-Frempong, District Chief Executive (DCE) for Agona East to perform the
sod cutting ceremony of the centre which is being financed through
contributions of citizens of the town.

The sod cutting ceremony also coincided the
launch of this year’s Akwambo festival which begins on November 26th
to 3rd , December.

Osabariam Afriyie said it is important for the
residents of the Nsaba Traditional Area to contribute their quota towards the
construction of the project.

He said this year’s Akwambo festival will aim
at raising funds to support the social centre whose construction has become
necessary to accommodate various social gathering needs.

Osabariam Afriyie said it is against the rules
and regulations to block streets roads for funerals and other activities, hence
the construction of the centre to avoid such illegal activities.

He said it is the responsibility of all
communities to initiate self-helped projects before seeking assistance from
government.    

Osabarima Afriyie said the traditional council
would not countenance any disturbance which will emanate from the market women
over the distribution of market stores.

He urged the public to comply by rules and
regulations of market allocation committee set up by the District Assembly to
distribute the new market.

He said the Traditional Council is
collaborating with the District Assembly to construct new lorry park at Nsaba
to regulate the movement of taxis and commercial vehicles operating in the
town.

The Omanhene said the Nsaba Traditional
Council has also established an arbitration committee to check young men and
women who show disrespect to elders, chiefs and heads of families.

Mr Dennis Armah-Fremong, Agona East DCE
pledged the assembly’s support towards the construction of the social centre.

Mr Alexander Buabeng, Law lecturer and
Chairman of Nsaba Development Advisory Board, said the board members are
looking for financial assistance from various sources to complete the project
on schedule.
