The Municipal Chief Executive, Hon. Ike Lord Ennu, Mr. George Pardmor Saah, the Municipal Acting President for One District One Factory (1D1F), madam Emelia Eyeson, head of Business Advocacy Centre, Ghana Enterprises Agency visited the Anomabo cassava processing factory under the government 1D1F flagship program to pre-assess the factory in order to pave way for the installation works to be carried out by Mr. Michael Tetteh, the installer.
The engineer, pleaded with MCE, to ensure constant supply of water and electricity to the factory, by providing water storage should the tap or borehole ceases to flow during operations, there will be enough water to keep the factory running. And also to fast track the provision of electricity to the factory to enable a speedy installation of the machines, because there will be use of electric fryers instead of firewood. The equipment to be install includes a miller, Crusher and 22 fryers.
The MCE posited that, he has been working at getting the factory operationalized upon his assumption to the office, and also in
discussions with the relevant institutions to provide water, electricity as well as getting the machines fixed for the factory to run. He assured the installers that he will continue to push till the factory is operationalized.
The MCE continued his working visit to Egyaa No. 1,2 and 3 beaches to assess the devastation caused by the tidal waves as a result of the sea defence at Anomabo.
Also, at the beach were Dr. John Kissi, Director of Hydrological Services Department, Mr. Ebenezer Ocran, Regional Hydrological Engineer, Mr. Boakye Yiadom Akoto, Coastal Engineer, Hon. John Afful, Presiding Member, Mfantseman, Nana Anamoah IV, Tufuhen of Egyaa Division and members of the affected residence.
Nana Anamoah IV stated that, the tidal waves have been washing away many houses along the beach as an absence of the sea defence project that ended at Anomabo. He appealed to the Director of Hydrological Services and the Municipal Chief Executive to extend the sea defence to cover all the adjoining Egyaa communities to save life and property.
Hon. John Afful presented a pictorial evidence of the havoc caused by the sea waves to Dr. Kissi and also pleaded with him that, there would be more havoc if nothing is done immediately.
The Director of Hydrological Services, Dr John Kissi suggested that, the MCE (Assembly) should channel the concerns into writing and forward to the Ministry of Works and Housing, requesting for the extension of the sea defence to cover all the adjoining communities along that stretch.
In conclusion the MCE expressed his appreciation to the Hydrological Services Director for his advice, patience and audience accorded to him and his entourage.
