My Predecessor Left an Empty and Indebted Office – DCE

District chief executive for Amansie Central Hon Nana Kwame Asamoah Boateng AKA “Asabee” has revealed that the former chief  executive and his administration left the Assembly with over 30 million Ghana Cedis debt which has become a huge problem for the Assembly.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Otec fm’s Evans Agyei Sikapa, Hon Asamoah Boateng expressed worry about how the administration of the Assembly had been run previously.

”Almost every vehicle belonging to the Assembly since I took over is now under maintenance and that has affected the Assembly in many ways especially revenue mobilization.

He however stated that even though the situation isn’t a comfortable one,  it will not derail him from making the Amansie Central District one of the best by the end of his tenure in office.

“The previous administration left the office empty and bankrupt but I will work with officers to clean up the mess created”, he assured.

The Amansie Central chief executive again revealed that plans were being made to ensure that the District capital and it’s environs get good roads to facilitate the smooth transportation of farm produce, especially with cocoa for sale.

The Amansie Central District he said produces a lot of cocoa but never benefits from any cocoa development policy such as cocoa roads and COCOBOD scholarships due to the absence of a yard in the area.

This Hon. Asamoah Boateng noted has resulted in the  transportation of the produce to nearby towns like Bekwai and Obuasi for sale, a situation he intends to change by working to acquire a yard for the area so they can be independent in the marketing of cocoa.

Hon Asabee however called on the government and other philanthropists especially natives from the area to come to their aid in making the only second cycle school in the District,  Jacobu senior high technical school  a model school with infrastructure.

According to him, teachers and students of the school are on track and are performing very well in their final exams but due to lack of infrastructure, students and parents prefer other schools outside the district because the school does not attract them.

He however called on the central government, GETFUND and other education outfits to consider the performance of the Jacobu senior high technical school and aid them in elevating the school to a higher standard.
