Some residents in the Asutifi North District, Ahafo Region have made a passionate appeal to President Akufo- Addo to maintain their District Chief Executive, Anthony Agyei Mensah to ensure development in the area.

According to them, the DCE has supervised major development in the district since 2017 including, Asutifi North District Hospital.

The group known as the Concerned Local Watchers say the current district hospital has come to improve the healthcare system in the district since February 2012.

“Since 2012 when the district was split off into two new districts (Asutifi South and Asutifi North Districts), we had no major hospital in the District. We have to travel several miles before we seek proper medical care. Thanks to the DCE and government for giving us our own major hospital to support us. We are indeed grateful,” a spokesperson for the group, Emmanuel Appiah Akotos said.

Also, the youth added that the two skills development centres created has supported them to acquire some vocational and technical skills to increase youth entrepreneurship in the district.

They added that DCE has also ensured that the water supply system has improved to about 90% to help residents in their domestic and commercial usage.

Moreover, the residents plead to government to fulfil its promise by helping fix the Kenyasi road in his second term to enable boost trading activities in the District.

Meanwhile, Anthony Agyei Mensah added that his greatest wish is to ensure that many needs of his constituents are met if he is reappointed again as DCE.

“My greatest priority is to ensure that I always listen to the needs and wants of my people and always work towards them. Am in to serve them with my everything”, Mr Akoto added.
