The Central Regional Minister, Honourable Justina Marigold Assan has embarked on a tour in the Central region of Ghana where she visited many districts in the region including Assin North and Assin Central.
On Tuesday, June 8, 2021, Hon. Marigold together with other dignitaries met the District Chief Executive, Police and Fire Commanders, and the Assembly members of the Assin North district as part of her mission to transform the districts and the region as a whole.
The development-driven tour commenced at Assin Breku, Assin North district capital where the honorable minister urged Assembly members to discharge their duties with efficiency.
The honorable minister discouraged all forms of negative tendencies which derail productivity citing lateness to work and indecent dressing as examples. She added that practicing partisan politics in the office is disastrous and may brew discord.
"Practicing partisan politics at the workplace brews friction. Concentrate on your core mandate and aspire to achieve all set goals".
She urged all assembly executives to make judicious use of the Assembly's scarce resources and advised that they work closely with the District Chief Executive.
"My doors are always opened. However, I urge you all to collaborate with the District Chief Executive to achieve productivity."
The minister together with the various dignitaries proceeded to Assin Praso to inspect the Pra river where she commented on her intentions towards eliminating galamsey.
"Let's come together as Ghanaians and halt destroying our resources. If we continue like this, we will not get a single fish in the water bodies in the near future. Hence, my office will continue to charge security agencies and equip them enough to eradicate all illegal miners from our land. We will work until we get clean, safe, portable water.
From Assin Praso, Hon. Marigold continued to Assin Assaman. Assin Assaman is well known for its notorious illegal small-scale mining on the Offin river.
At the galamsey site, the regional minister permitted the security officers to set fire in the mining equipment found on the water body.
