THE UPPER West Regional Minister, Dr. Ephraim Avea Nsoh has strongly cautioned contractors in the region against the execution of shoddy work. According to him he would not tolerate any contractor whose performance borders on shoddy work.
Dr. Nsoh gave this admonition when he paid separate calls on Chiefs in the region to inform them officially of his assumption of office and to express gratitude to the chiefs and people of the region for voting the National Democratic Congress (NDC) into office.
The Regional Minister was companied by his Deputy, Hon. Abu K. Kassangabata, the Regional Coordinating Director, Mr. J.B. Atogba and the Deputy Police Commander, (ACP) D. Ampofo.
Some of the Paramount chiefs the Regional Minister and his entourage visited included Naa Imoro Nandong Goma II at Wechau and Naa Suhihimwininye Danaa Gore II at Dorimon, Chiefs of Wa West, Naa Dananmwini Sandu II at Kaleo, Nadowli west and Naa Dikomwine Domalae Daffiama I, Nadowli East.
Dr. Nsoh called for peace, unity and a strong partnership with his administration to enable him and his Deputy to work for the development of the region. He noted that for the region to thrive there was the need to work towards the eradication of poverty, illiteracy and diseases adding that, this could only be achieved if peace was sustained in the area.
Dr. Nsoh assured the chiefs of an open door administration and urged them to help promote peaceful co-existence of the people.
All the Chiefs called for infrastructural development in their areas. The chiefs of Wechau, Daffiama and Kaleo particularly appealed for a police station to reduce crime.
They also called on the government to establish a teacher training school in the various districts.
Naa Suhihimwininye Danaa Gore II said though government plans to boost infrastructure in schools that of Dorimon was very urgent and crucial, because of the deprived nature of the district.
He added that the training school would also serve the increasing number of graduates from the Senior High Schools. The chiefs also assured of their support to President Mahama, the NDC and the Regional Co-ordinating Council to develop the region.
