About four communities in the Kwahu Afram Plains North District would soon be connected to the national electricity grid as part of efforts to promote development in the district.
The communities to benefit from the project include Adukrom, Agordeke, Seibia and Abotanso.
Mr Samuel Kena, the District Chief Executive for Kwahu Afram Plains North, made this known during a Social Auditing Forum organised by the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) at Adukrom.
The Social Auditing is intended to bring duty bearers or those tasked with various governmental responsibilities closer to the communities they serve to account for their stewardship and together with the community members deliberate on developmental issues in a manner that brings hope and assurance to the people.
The DCE urged the beneficiary communities to support the initiative to make it a success and appealed to the people to take advantage of the various flagship programmes of the government including; Planting for Food and Jobs and Planting for Food and Export programmes to better their standards of living.
He said the government was prepared to support, particularly the youth to engage in the programmes to help create employment.
Mr Kena assured that, the reshaping of the Adukrom Town roads would resume after being halted due to mechanical failure on the grader undertaking the project and informed the people about the construction of a new Clinic at Adukrom to serve the community and neighboring towns.
Mr Ofei Nkansah, the District Director of NCCE advised the people not to see elections as an end in itself, but an opportunity to address their developmental needs.
Therefore, Social Auditing provides an avenue for interaction while ensuring transparency, accountability and minimising corruption.
The participants suggested to the NCCE to organise such fora regularly to enlighten them on projects and programmes that were executed by the assembly to ensure transparency.
They appealed to the District Assembly to convert an old school block to Staff quarters for teachers posted to the area and to provide potable water to the clinic.
