The Presiding Member of Agona East Assembly, Mr Samuel Richard Ziggah, has called on assembly members to make meaningful decisions that would help the growth and development of their localities.

Mr Ziggah, who is a lecturer at the Department of Psychology and Education of the University of Education, Winneba, made the call in an interview with Ghana News Agency in Nsaba.

He said he believed that when members put aside their political sentiments and allow the interest of their areas to prevail, they could work as a team towards the growth of their districts.

He said the Agona East area lacked many amenities, including roads to the hinterlands, school infrastructure, electricity in some communities and accommodation for newly posted staff to the assembly and health facilities.

He said the government alone could not provide all these needs, and suggested the need to sell the district to the outside world under the sister city concept to find partnership for development.

Mr Ziggah appealed to the assembly members to look for more avenues to generate funds to increase their revenue to supplement the Common Fund for development projects.

He said he would initiate a welfare association for the members to support each other in times of crisis.

The PM said his doors were opened to all for constructive criticisms which would be used for the benefit of the lot.
