 She stated that, “development initiatives can only flourish when there is peaceful environment” and has thus called for unity among resident in the district to improve development.

Madam Boatemaa made the appeal to chiefs when she visited some communities within the district on a formalization tour.

Some of the communities she visited are Okaikrom, Senkye, Odurokurom, Attakurom.

The DCE noted that an area of importance that parents should pay particular attention to should be the education of their wards and advised parents to abstain from investing massively in social gatherings such as funerals, out-doorings and other things that deprive their children the requisite investment for their future. Instead she appealed to them to prioritize their education and spend more time with them in order to instill in them good moral values

She said its proper for parents to invest in the education of their children rather than spend on things that would not inure to the future well-being of their children.

She noted that, the interaction was to afford community members the opportunity to demand accountability from the assembly as well as answer queries on projects being executed in their communities.

Madam Marfo encouraged them to put into use all the skills and knowledge acquired in their training as community monitors, preparation of score cards, monitoring of projects and interface sessions to demand accountability.
