The Member of Parliament for Atiwa East constituency of the Eastern Region, Abena Osei-Asare has admonished her constituents to adopt a higher maintenance culture in order to ensure sustainability of the developmental projects and interventions in the constituency.

Madam Osei-Asare bemoaned the lukewarm attitude people sometimes adopt to the maintenance of government projects, noting that such posturing is a disservice to posterity.

The MP made these remarks when she donated some items including 50 streetlights and 100 solar lamps worth Gh¢6,000 to some communities in her constituency. The beneficiary communities are Ankaasi, Anyinam, Mosease, Enyiresi , Nanapa among others .

The provision of streetlights and lamps are to serve as a stop gap measure to improve security in the area whilst plans are afoot to connect most of the communities to the national electricity grid.

Madam Abena Osei-Asare intimated the gesture was in response to ceaseless calls over the absence of streetlights on the main Anyinam-Jejeti road, which has put the lives of people of those communities and travelers in danger.

She indicated that the solar lamps would be placed in the respective Community-based Health Planning and Services (CHIPS) compounds as well as allied facilities  in the constituency.
