Give priority to the dev't of Zongo communities

Government have been urged to give priority attention to the development of Zongo communities, where the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) enjoys massive backing.

The youth of the party at Agogo Zongo in the Asante-Akim North District said their community deserved to be rewarded with developmental projects for their political loyalty.

They said they were not comfortable with the “total neglect,” and warned that if the situation did not change, it could affect the party’s fortunes in 2016.

The youth expressed these sentiments when the District Chief Executive (DCE), Mr. Daniel Osei, toured the community to interact with the people to gauge their most felt needs.

They bitterly complained about the poor and dusty nature of roads running through their area, and asked that this must be tackled without delay.

Mr. Osei advised them to remain patient, as the Assembly work to fix the challenges they face as a community.

He said he is determined to go every length to improve the socio-economic conditions in the Zongos; adding that their roads would be worked on while the on-going school project will be completed.

He advised parents in the community to put premium on the education of their children, especially the girl-child.

Baba Adul-Rahman, Chief of the Zongo Community, said they were going to hold the DCE to his word.
