The Acting District Chief Executive for Sene East, Honourable Abraham Mbanye has cut the sod for the commencement of construction of the town roads in Kajeji of the Bono East Region.
Performing the sod-cutting ceremony on Friday, 17th September 2021, Mr Abraham Mbanye indicated that a total of 3 kilometres of roads within Kajeji will be given a face-lift.
With the mainstay of residents of the town being agriculture, the District Chief Executive was confident that the completion of the road will help facilitate the movement of people, goods and services within the town.
The contract has been awarded to O.B.J engineering company Lmt and is to use four months to complete the work.
The works to be undertaken include the clearing and demolition of existing weak structures, formation, widening of narrow sections, construction of critical culverts, construction of u-drains, construction of trapezoidal drains, sub-base, base, embankment protection, primer and seal.
He reassured all persons whose structures may be affected by the construction will be duly compensated, and urged the Chiefs and people of Kajeji to help ensure that the process is completed on time.
Nana Krunko Sunkwa, the Acting President for Nkomi Traditional Area, who spoke on behalf of the beneficiary communities, expressed happiness for the development.
He said after the first President of Ghana, Osagyefo Dr Nkrumah constucted their town roads, successive governments had failed to construct that portion of the road despite the residents’ pleas.
“We are grateful to the government and District Chief Executive for Sene East for their unpresidented developmental projects brought to our district,” he said.
Nana Krunko said, when completed, the road would improve upon the lives of residents.
On his part, Sene East Npp constituency Chairman, Mr. Odonyim Kofi Abraham appealed to the residents of his constituency to look at the numerious number of developmental projects Npp government has brought to the district within few years and stop voting for NDC.
