Buipewura Poised to Lead Sanitation Campaign.


The paramount chief of Buipe traditional area, Bupeiwura Abdulai Mahama Jinapor II has canceled his routine medical review for this week in order  to take part in the national sanitation day exercise scheduled for Saturday February 7. 
The chief who is bent on leading the clean up campaign in the Central Gonja District, says he  is ready to equal or exceed the commitment the Asantehene Osei Tutu II put up in Kumasi when the  national sanitation day was officially launched in Ashanti Region. 
The Bupeiwura however warned all residents in his jurisdiction to come out and clean their environment or face sanctions.  The Buipe wura who gave the warning when the local government minister, Julius Debra paid a courtesy call on him at his palace in Buipe in the central Gonja district, says that only extremely sick persons will be spared on the day of the exercise.
 Buipewura also promised to invoke bees to sting anyone who deliberately refuse to take part in the exercise. 
The   chief also appealed to government to absorb the senior high schools in Central Gonja area. 
Mr Debra who is touring the Gonja areas urged the people to show keen interest in the forth coming district level elections. 
He reiterated  the need for the people to elect people with substance into the assemblies.  
Governance the minister said begins at the district level and is only people with interest and communities at heart should be elected to champion the cause of development in their areas.

The District Chief Executive for Central Gonja, Mumin Shiraz Ibn Yacin  told Mr Debra that the major challenge confronting the district is accommodation for staff and the absence of a hospital. 
Most staff the DCE said live at far places in the district and is affecting productivity. 
 Some of the workers also mentioned inadequate office accommodation for workers. Since 2010, the district got many workers who have no offices to work.

Addressing workers at the central Gonja district assembly, Mr Debra urged the assemblies to adopt innovative ways of generating more funds to advance the development of their districts and not rely on central government remittances only. 
He charged the assemblies to position themselves properly in order to attract investors.
He express  worry about in-fighting and called for unity among workers at the various assemblies to facilitate development projects.
