He said the Assembly has prepared the grounds for developmental projects to kick start and all stakeholders in the district should brace themselves up for it.

Hon. Maurice Woode made this known when he toured Sikaman and Brofoyedru communities in the district as part of his familiarization tour and also having first-hand information on some of the challenges in the district.

The visit was also intended to introduce some of government policies to them and how they can brace themselves up for them.

He said farmers in the district should brace themselves up as the Assembly is to nurse over Eighty Thousand (80,000) palm nuts and Sixty Thousand (60,000) orange seedlings to be distributed to farmers who will be interested in their production.

Hon. Woode said this is a way the district is preparing itself for the official commencement of the One District One Factory Programme of the government (1D1F) in the district. He added that an effective factory in the district will largely depend on the amount or quantity of raw materials available. Thus, they will have to ensure that there is enough raw materials before the commencement of the programme in the district.

He also appealed to those who have arable lands, to make them available for the project to kick start. Hon. Woode assured that the Assembly is working around the clock to ensure that those who are into cereal plantation make enough dividends from it. So they should soon expect officials from the Agriculture Department of the Assembly to give them the necessary assistance.

For his part, the Chief of Sikaman, Nana Abankwa Ababio also thanked the District Chief Executive for the visit and assured that they will also render their support to make his administration a success.

He also appealed to the District Chief Executive to as a matter of urgency help in the poor communication signals in the town. He lamented that due to the poor communication signals in the town, they find it difficult to communicate to family and friends outside their town. He added that they have already written to the communication networks but have not received any response.

He also requested that the poor road network in the town be fixed to make carting of food stuffs out of their farms to the market places easier.
