Coordinator for No Business as Usual (NBU) Project Roberta Aryetey has commended youth and development committee of Aboabo No. 2 electoral area.
She has praised them for their active and exemplary role geared towards the demand for accountability from duty bearers and ultimately the development of the area.
In a strong admonishing to executives of the committee, she said that though the execution of their mandate is purely sacrificial and deficient of financial emulation, they should overlook the challenges and give out their best for the good of the electoral area.
“There is no salary coupled with many challenges and you may be tempted to give up”, she indicated, encouraging that they should do whatever they can aside the support earned from government.
Roberta Aryetey made this statement in a town hall engagement with electorates, residents and elected assembly man for the area on Sunday 27th June 2021.
The meeting was organised by officials of the European Union Funded Project (NBU), aimed at promoting social accountability.
It afforded the assembly man Hon Yusif Idrisu the privilege to share with electorates his achievements since he assumed office.
Participants were also given a platform at the forum to probe him on his delivery and other pressing issues.
Addressing the media at the event, Hon Yusif Iddrisu named indiscipline among residents as a major challenge affecting the development and progress of the electoral areas.
He explained that the forgoing is the reason for the high level of open defecation, illicit dumping of refuse, barricading of roads without permit, substance abuse etc in the area.
Solving such challenge requires a heightened public education.
The Municipal Director for the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) Mr. Matthew Agbenu was also present at the event.
He enlightened the residents on their Civic rights and responsibilities.
