The Chairman of the North Haatso Residents’ Association, Mr. Moses Kwao Tetteh, has expressed profound gratitude to the Ga East Municipal Assembly and the Presiding Member, Hon. Edward Ayitey Aryee, for their support which has enabled them to construct a Police Post for the area.
Mr. Tetteh made this comment in an interview with GEMANEWS ahead of the commissioning and handover of the facility to the Ghana Police Service.
According to him, though the Association constructed the Post by levying its members and sourcing funds from other residents and benevolent individuals and organizations, the Assembly also provided them some support.
“The Assembly has helped us tremendously and we are most grateful to them and the Municipal Chief Executive for coming to our aid. When we were going for building permit, they helped us a lot and they also supported us with cash amount”.
The Association Chairman paid glowing tribute to the Assemblyman for the area for his contributions and support for the Association and the general development of the area.
“We want to thank the Assemblyman for Haatso, Hon. Ayitey, for always being with us – he has attended our meetings and shared ideas with us and helped us financially. Quite apart from the Assembly’s input in the project, he has personally substantially helped us to do this work. Most of the things that we did were done by the Assemblyman and we are most grateful to him”, Mr. Tetteh noted.
Responding to the question whether individuals and corporate bodies in the area had supported their cause, the Chairman responded in a mix.
“They have been supportive but the support is not massive. Some individuals and corporate bodies have come to our aid. They have supported us and donated some few amounts to us and that has also helped us very well in getting to where we have gotten to now.
Mr Kwao Tetteh appealed to the people living in the community to join the Association and also support them financially to add to efforts by the government and the Assembly in developing the area.
The Police Post is expected to be commissioned and handed over to the Police administration this Saturday, 25th April, 2015.
