Pusiga District Assembly Development Initiatives On Track

Mr Alhassan Abugbila, the Pusiga District Chief Executive, has said the Assembly is focusing on implementing appropriate measures that would promote rapid development.

He said the measures would include intensifying the national household registration programme which was helping the Assembly to register all households and come up with an updated data that would help allocate needed resources to the appropriate communities.

Mr Abugbila, who was speaking at the second ordinary meeting of the second session of the District Assembly held at Pusiga, said the programme was another social intervention rolled out by government to help transform and change the lives of people.

He said the household registration would facilitate easy access to data base by social protection programmes and increase efficiency in the implementation of those programmes.

Mr Abugbila said it would also provide quick identification of the poor and vulnerable in society to facilitate timely interventions and reduce the cost of implementing social protection programmes through the elimination of duplication.

He said the Assembly has formed a vibrant revenue task force to mobilize revenue that would be used to complement government’s effort at developing the area.

Mr Abugbila said from May to July the Assembly had mobilized GHC 53,337.80 out of the total cost of GHC 72,200.00.

Mr Abugbila said it is the intention of the Assembly to procure motorbikes for all departments in the district to enhance public service delivery.

As part of measures to improve quality health delivery, he said, the Assembly has constructed more residential accommodation for health workers at some specified areas in the district.

Mr Abugbila said the Assembly would also setup a task force made of the Department of Agriculture and the Ghana Police Service to monitor the distribution of government subsidized fertilizer in the district during the cropping season.

Mr George Atuase, the Presiding Member for the Assembly, urged the Assembly Members to put partisanship aside and work for the development of their communities and the district.

He called on the area councils to support in the mobilization of revenue as that would be used to provide social infrastructure such as roads, schools, health facilities and other development needs.
