MUNICIPAL Chief Executive (MCE) of Weija-Gbawe Municipal Assembly in the Greater Accra Region, Mr Patrick Kwesi Brako Kumor, has disclosed that a contractor would soon start construction works on the Tetegu main 4.5-Km road as part of efforts to upgrade access roads in the Weija-Gbawe Constituency to aid human and vehicular movement.
He emphasised that the main Tetegu road which stretches from the Kasoa main road has been awarded to a contractor and that the tractors would soon begin work.
He averred that Tetegu, a fishing community, was dear to the heart of the assembly, adding that they would make the town to look like East or West Legon.
He indicated that his assembly together with the Member of Parliament (MP) for Weija-Gbawe Constituency, who doubles as the deputy Minister for Health, Madam Tina Naa Ayeley Mensah, had already carried out repair works on the Tetegu main and bypass roads.
He noted that the repair works which commenced Friday, October 13, 2017 involving leveling and reshaping of the main and bypass stretch of roads in Tetegu, a community in Weija-Gbawe Constituency in the Greater Accra Region, received applause and praise from residents.
The repair work on the above mentioned roads was necessitated by complains brought to the doorstep of the assembly by residents of Tetegu, stressing that the upgrading was carried out by Madam Mensah in collaboration with the Weija-Gbawe Municipal Assembly.
Mr Kumor disclosed this at a sod-cutting ceremony to build a basic school complex for the people of Tetegu. He lauded the Chief of Tetegu, Nii Kofi Kumah I, for his love for community development for which he always makes lands available whenever the assembly requests for land for social projects for the people.
The MCE noted that there was no single occasion when the assembly had contacted the chief to release land for any project that Nii Kofi Kumah had turned them away.
He told the contractor of the project to go according to the specifications and the timeline for the project. He urged that the youth at Tetegu to lend their support to the project.
The MCE hinted that very soon a modern police station will be added to the litany of projects that had been earmarked for Tetegu.
He averred that very soon he would also be cutting a sod for a factory to be built at Tetegu for the youth in the area to get work to do in line with the One District One Factory policy of the Akufo-Addo administration.
For her part, Madam Mensah stressed that it was very important for the school to be completed early because Tetegu school children on daily basis cross the main Mallam-Kasoa highway to Oblogo to school which put many of them at high risk.
