Nana Arthu r said efforts were being made to improve infrastructure in second cycle institutions in the area, and appealed to the people to support Government and refrain from land litigation to facilitate more development.

He urged the youth employed by the contractor working on the project, to be hardworking and refrain from pilfering at the project site.

Nana Agyema n Kyirewia Kordie, Omanhene of Abrem Traditional Area, expressed appreciation for the reconstruction of the road and commended Government for its development projects.

Mr Theophilus Biney, Acting Managing Director of Eagle Star Construction firm, based in Accra, the contractor appealed for support from the chiefs and people to ensure its early completion. He said so far about 20 youths in the area had been engaged to work on the project and the number would be increased to 50.
