KMA Tackles Abandoned Projects

Sam Pyne

THE KUMASI Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) has announced it is committed and determined to complete all stalled projects of the assembly.

This decision, it said, would help contribute significantly to the smooth development of the city and the wellbeing of the residents of Kumasi.

Kumasi Mayor Sam Pyne, who said this, indicated that his administration has resolved to tackle the infrastructure development of the city, going forward.

He was delivering his address during a groundbreaking ceremony in Kumasi for works to start on some six-classroom block projects.

The projects are taking place at the Adumanu MA Basic, Adoato MA Basic and African Faith Basic at Kegyase, all in Kumasi.

Mr. Pyne pledged that the assembly, aside completing all stalled projects, would also commence new ones soon to help advance the Garden City.

The assembly, he noted, is seeking for sponsorship to help complete all school infrastructure as well as market projects, started by his predecessors.

“As mayor, my commitment is to look for sponsorship or support outside KMA to ensure that we complete projects we have committed to undertake,” he said.

Mr. Pyne, therefore, demanded that contractors engaged by the assembly to carry out projects should always work diligently to ensure value for money.

“KMA is hard pressed for funds to complete all projects so I will demand quality work from all contractors working on projects assigned to them,” he said.

The KMA Chief Executive stated that the assembly and the people of Kumasi deserve the best from contractors who have been engaged to work for the city.

In this regard, he stated that “his administration will not tolerate shoddy works from contractors hired by the KMA.”

Nana Kwame Frimpong Akowuah, Chief of Adumanu, commended the KMA boss and his staff for the school project.

The Assemblyman for Adoato-Adumanu, I.K. Acheampong, on his part, also showered praises on the assembly for the project in his community.
