Adding his voice, Mr. Prince Karikari, the District Chief Executive (DCE), reiterated that the said project is expected to be completed within six months since all materials needed are ready to commence the project.

Nana Appiah Ampim Frimpong II, the chief of Foase lauded the Member of Parliament and the District Chief Executive for the project and pledged the support of Nananom to the contractors in the delivery of their services over the estimated period of time. He stressed the project when completed, will improve police visibility and accessibility across the area.

The Chief urged the contractor to speed up work to fulfill the promise and also admonished the police to deal with all miscreants in the community at the law court rather than resulting to the palace to serve as a deterrent to many others.

Engineer Christian Abedu, who represented Construction Ambassadors, the contractors for the project assured that the project will be completed in 6 months’ time as scheduled. He highlighted that the critical nature of the project will encourage the contractors to complete the project on time.
