The Assembly Member for the Obra Wogum/Donkokyianmu Electoral Area in the Effutu Municipality in the Central Region, Mr Nathaniel Papa Akyeampong, has called on assembly members to regularly engage their constituents on activities of their respective district assemblies to whip up their interest in the local governance system.

Such a move, he said, would enable the electorate to take the district assembly concept seriously and offer the needed support towards deepening the decentralisation process.

He stated that there was the need for assembly members to organise periodic engagements to listen to the concerns of the people, and further inform and educate them on policies and programmes being put in place by the assembly to address their basic needs.

Community forum

Mr Akyeampong was speaking to the Daily Graphic at a day’s public engagement forum he organised in his electoral area to interact and collate the concerns and views of the people for redress by the district assembly through the assembly member.

The engagement brought together stakeholders such as teachers, traders, market women, artisans, among others, who took turns to voice their concerns about the administration of the area.
