‘Do not allow party politics to divide you’ – NCCE officer

Anthony Kelvin Amoh, the Manso-Amenfi National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) officer, has advised communities in the area not to let partisan politics divide them but should unite for the development of the area.

He said unity of purpose in ensuring that decision makers became accountable to the people was critical to achieving accountability and transparency with the ultimate goal of halting corruption.

Mr Amoh, at a community durbar, said it had become imperative for the citizenry to constantly monitor projects by assemblies to ensure that the right procedures were followed.

The durbar was supported by the European Union to raise the consciousness on the effects of corruption on local and national development.

Mr Fred Kpodo, the Coordinating Director of the Assembly, said the Assembly was happy to collaborate with the local people to enhance development.

Nana Gyabour, Nkrotihene of Manso-Amenfi, pleaded with the Assembly to fix the bad road network and provide streetlights and health centre for the wellbeing of the people.

Later, an eight-member committee was inaugurated to follow-up on development projects.
