The Chief of Gomoa-Mangoase in the Gomoa East District, Nana Ogyefo-Okofo Amoako II, has appealed to government and the District Assembly to offer assistance to the community to embark on some projects within the community.
The chief, who was speaking to some journalists in his palace on Friday, expressed appreciation to his people for embarking on some projects which he believes will go a long way to enhance the progress and growth of the area.
The community has been faced with road crashes recently and the chief believes the situation is as result of the non-availability of speed rums on the Winneba-Swedru road which poses serious threat to lives.
Nana Ogyefo-Okofo Amoako II said, because there is no speed rums on that road, motorists and hit and run drivers do unnecessary speeding thereby killing innocent lives.
He also indicated that, the only access road in the Mangoase township is in a deplorable state, and appealed to government to construct the road for the community.
Nana Ogyefo-Okofo Amoako also averred that, the community is already embarking on some community-help projects to construct a community centre at a cost of Gh100,000.
He also said, the community was able to continue a KG classroom facility for the Brofoyedur/Mangoase DA Basic schools with assistance from the former MP for the Gomoa East constituency.
According to the chief, the construction of these facilities has drained the community purse, hence they are unable to work on other projects.
“That is why we are appealing to government to help us with the construction of speed rums and the only access road in the community. We are not only calling on government, but also on other benevolent individuals and organisations to come and assist us.” He said.
He also hinted that the community needed a place of convenience and a library facility to help boost reading culture among children I the community.
