The former DCE for Bongo, Peter Ayinbisa has said the district has benefitted massively from the government’s 1 Constituency 1 Million Dollars programme. He explained that funds from this programme have fast-tracked the infrastructural development of the area.
He said this when he spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show, today, Wednesday, June 22, 2022. Responding to questions about the government’s commitment to fulfilling its promise, Mr. Ayinbisa explained that many Ghanaians who operated under the assumption that the government was going to send the money to the accounts of the various MMDAs, as is the case of the DACF, could not be far from the truth.
The former DCE explained that to help dispense the funds and foster development, the government set up the development agencies. These agencies then became the vehicles for driving development.
In the Bongo District, Mr Ayinbisa suggested that the value of the projects implemented in the district under the 1 Constituency 1 Million Dollars programme is worth more than 4 million dollars.
” … they never said they were going to transfer same to the district of the constituencies. If somebody has that, they should show it to me. They said they were going to give us projects and that is why they established the development authorities.”
“We have had projects even worth more than $4 million dollars. Bongo we have built so many schools, so many CHPS compounds, nurses’ and teachers’ quarters, dams, toilet facilities, and boreholes from this 1 million dollars 1 constituency,” he said.
The former DCE continued to say that “if you go to quantify the projects that have been built, it is worth more than $4million”.
“We have built an ultramodern market at Bongo-soe. With that fund, we have built the Bongo lorry park. We have built 2 CHPS compounds; one is located in Vea and the other in Zorkor.”
