‘’My brother, it is very worrying when road contract is been awarded, the ministry do not involve the district chief executives to be part of the contract and all what you will see is there is a contractor on site working. How can we supervised and monitor them to ensure they are compelled to follow the agreement signed by the ministry”, he asked.

“There are about 67 communities under my district and when I assumed office as the district chief executive, I visited over 40 communities and all what the chiefs and the people appealed was reconstruction of their roads so that they can transport their farming products to boost up trade”, Nana Antwi said.

When asked about the abandoned road project from Ampame towards Kwanwoma, he said, one company called NATO construction Limited was the company which the contract was awarded to but do not understand why they cleared their machineries from site and as he speaks, the road is in deplorable state which has become albatross on the neck of the assembly and the people living there.

Hon.Nana Okyere Tawiah Antwi revealed that, about 63.5Km road networks of Atwima Kwanwoma district are in deplorable state and believed that the NPP government  will not sleep on social amenities that will bring improvements into the lives of people living in the country.

Citing on other challenges as chief executive, he hinted that encroachment of school lands has become a confronting issue, lack of teaching and learning materials to promote quality education and lack of security posts  are what they are facing.

He pledged to work hard to obtain a hallmark as a district chief executive but urged all people in his district to rally behind him in order to bring growth among themselves.
