Obuasi East: Over 11,500 Oil Palm Seedlings Earmarked For PERD
The District Chief Executive for Obuasi East Hon Faustina Amissah has disclosed that about (11,500) seedlings of oil palm have so far being raised at Domeabra in the Obuasi East District for free distribution to all registered oil palm farmers in the District under the Government's Flagship program, Planting for Export and Rural Development (PERD) which the President of the Republic is expected to Launch this month.
She said this when she delivered her Sessional address at the Third Ordinary meeting of the Second Session of the First Assembly on Thursday, 11th April 2019 in Wawasi.
Hon. Faustina Amissah gave accounts on the state of the District in areas such as Governance and Policy Implementation, State of Security and Safety, Health, Education, Status of Project Implementation, Government Flagship Programs among many others.
On Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty (LEAP), Madam Amissah revealed that a total of (1,290) households in (28) communities within the District has been enrolled as beneficiaries of the program and a sum of (GH 117,262.00) Cedis has been paid as cash grants to participants.
Accounting on Sanitation, Madam Faustina disclosed to the house that the District in collaboration with the Obuasi Municipal Assembly has engaged the services of a waste management provider to expand the final waste disposal site in the District in order to spread waste and create enough space to prevent frequent pushing of waste products.
The Honourable DCE then stressed that the Assembly is doing all within its power to bring massive development to the young but vibrant District, but fumed that the deplorable nature of the District's Township road network is seemingly making it less developed.
She then called on all stakeholders to keep up the determination and work assiduously to change the hitherto dynamics into a positive song.
Present at the meeting were the Presiding Member, Hon. Jeff Adjei, the District Coordinating Director, Mr. Emmanuel Ntoso, Assembly Members and the Media.
