The Ho Central Member of Parliament (MP), Hon. Benjamin Komla Kpodo, has expressed his satisfaction about the progress of work on the new Ho Municipal Assembly Complex Project.
The Ho Municipal Assembly which is one of the oldest assemblies in the region started a modern Assembly Complex Project to host the office of the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) and other important offices.
The project was supposed to have started in 2019 but delayed due to some concerns that needed to be addressed before its commencement. It was subsequently re-awarded in 2022.
The MP who is also a member of the local government committee in parliament visited the site to inspect progress of work and also interacted with the site engineer.
According to him, the three (3) storey office complex project for Ho Municipal Assembly, with funding from District Assembly Common Fund (DACF) has become very necessary since the current complex does not merit the regional assembly status.
“The current Ho Municipal Assembly couldn’t be described as an office when the local government committee toured the region some time ago. Some of my colleagues even describe it as hencoop so I appealed to the district assembly common fund administrator through the committee to construct a befitting complex for the assembly.” He narrated.
Being satisfied with the progress of work so far, Mr. Kpodo said, he is expecting the twelve (12) month project which is in its fifth (5) months to be completed by the end of 2023 regardless of any challenge that might cause a delay.
Even though the MP could not reveal the exact amount allocated for the project, he said the initial amount was five million Ghana cedis but was later subjected to review.
The lawmaker however warned government not to temper with the common fund which may affect the project.
Mr. Kpodo has been engaging his constituents in series of town hall meetings and discussing some events which took place in parliament and the way forward before parliament convenes on February 7, 2023.
Hon. Benjamin kpodo also cut sod for construction of a community center at Tanyigbe Dzafe, construction of a new classroom block for Sokode Lokoe Technical Institute and Community Development Vocational School.
