Ga South Assembly commissions vehicles for operations

The Ga South Municipal Assembly has commissioned two vehicles worth GH¢351,682.20 to support the operations of the assembly.

The vehicles are four-wheel drive Toyota Hilux double-cabin pickups.

Revenue mobilisation

The vehicles will be used for regular activities in the assembly to enhance revenue mobilisation in order to increase the internally generated funds.

The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of the Ga South Municipal Assembly, Mr Joseph Nyarni Stephen, said the efforts of the assembly to raise GH¢1,117,000.00 within three months informed the decision to procure the vehicles.

Mr Nyarni Stephen said the vehicles would facilitate the activities of the assembly with respect to project monitoring which would in turn generate revenue for the assembly.

“To enhance revenue mobilisation, there was the need for the assembly to procure new vehicles to make it easier and faster,” he stated.

He, therefore, urged the people within the assembly to have confidence in them and trust them to bring development to the assembly.

The Greater Accra Regional Minister, Mr Ishmael Ashitey, who aided the cutting of the tape to commission the vehicles, said he hoped the vehicles would be put to good use.

According to him, the Ga South Assembly was doing well on its own since it moved to its temporary premises.

Achievement

Mr Ashitey said the assembly, under the leadership of Mr Nyarni Stephen, had been able to achieve a lot more than he had imagined.

He lauded the assembly for constructing a female ward at the Ngleshie Amanfrom Polyclinic and a three-unit classroom block at Tebu out of its district development fund.

He, therefore, called on other staff of the assembly to work assiduously to help the assembly achieve its set goals.
