"Unity is strength... when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved", she added.

The Obuasi East District Assembly was carved out of the Obuasi Municipal Assembly as part of the 38 new districts which were created by the President and was inaugurated on 15th March 2018. It is made up of 19 electoral areas with Tutuka as its Capital.
