The Wassa Amenfi West Municipal Directorate of the NCCE has engaged the inhabitants of the area on Social Auditing as part of planned activities under the Anti-Corruption, Rule of Law and Accountability Programme (ARAP) at Asankran Moseaso.

The ARAP, an initiative to curb corruption and other socially unacceptable deeds and promote socio-economic development is sponsored by the European Union.

Mr. Cornelius Ahiekpor, the Municipal Director of the NCCE, said Social auditing education was to help communities value ownership of developmental projects and policies and ensure full participations from start to finish to avoid shoddy works.

It is also to increase awareness of the operation of local Government and empower the citizenry to demand accountability from duty bearers.

Under the ARAP, he said the NCCE would campaign, advocate and lobby for increased accountability and a reduction in corruption among the populace as Ghana strived to live beyond Aid.

Ms. Theresa Ussher, the Assembly Member for the area, said the Assembly would continue to liaise and collaborate with the various communities to identify and provide the needed social amenities.

Nana Abrah Kwah, the regent of Asankran -Moseaso and chairman of the programme, made a passionate appeal to the Municipal Assembly to complete the abandoned road linking Moseaso and Oda Anwiam, place of convenience and the six-unit classroom block started by the previous government.

At the end of the programme, a seven (7) member committee was inaugurated to see to the completion of the various identified development projects in the community.
