Martin Obeng, Municipal Chief Executive for Sunyani West has hit back at residents of the area who claim the then District did not enjoy any development projects under the Akufo Addo administration and hence do not see the need for its elevation to a Municipal status.
He said the then Sunyani West District under the current government was the best ever developed area since its establishment and its elevation would help improve on the laid down foundations.
Martin Obeng made the rebuttal when our reporter Ama Konadu called on him at his office after the official announcement of the elevation by President Akufo Addo on November 14 this year. Commenting on the development, the MCE said the announcement calls for a celebration.
The MCE used the opportunity to call on the residents to vote yes in the upcoming referendum.
Hon Martin Obeng further called on the entire residents in the Sunyani West Municipality to come out in their numbers to register in the ongoing Ghana Card registration.
