The Municipal Chief Executive for Bawku Municipal Assembly, Hon. Abdul-Rahman Gumah, has said that education remains the priority of the assembly in an effort to better the lot of the people.

Speaking in an interview with ghanadistricts.com, he said: "To this effect, the assembly has constructed four Childhood Development Centres at Bawku, Dusiga, Dinduri, and Kulubugu."

He added that the assembly is also financing four school blocks from their share of the District Assembly Common Fund(DACF) which will be completed in 2007.

Hon. Abdul-Rahman Gumah said the Assembly has built a health centre at Dansi and is still working hard to make health care delivery nearer to the people in the over 400 communities in the municipality.

Commenting on the NHIS, the Municipal Chief Executive revealed that out of the over 170,000 people in the municipality, 90,000 have embraced the scheme and are already benefiting from it.

He explained that the capitation grant has immensely contributed to the increased enrolment in the basic schools nationwide adding that two schools have been selected from the Bawku municipality on pilot basis under the school feeding programme.

He indicated that the assembly through its share of the DACF and donor fund has constructed an articulator station and added that the road network in the area has also improved significantly.

Hon. Abdul-Rahman Guman expressed delight at the successful inauguration of the newly-elected members of the assembly.
