Dr Stephen Nana Ato Arthur, KEEA MP

The Member of Parliament (MP) for the Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abrem (KEEA) Municipality, , has commended the chiefs and the people of the community for their immense support for him during the election.

Dr Ato Arthur assured the people that he would not discriminate against any community in the municipality irrespective of its political affiliation.

He was speaking at the inauguration of a community centre at Kokwaado, near Kissi, in the KEEA municipality.

It was built by the chiefs and people of Kokwaado at a cost of GH¢10,000.00.

With the inauguration of the centre, the chiefs and people now have a convenient spot to converge for social activities for the development of the community.


Nana Ato Arthur advised the people to remain united and not allow their political affiliations to divide them but to continue to initiate projects to improve their living conditions.

He said as a democrat, he believed in the freedom of association which enjoined anyone to belong to a lawful and legal entity of his/her choice and, therefore, did not understand why they should be divided by politics.

Dr Ato Arthur donated GHC300.00 to the people and promised to support them to complete their kindergarten project.

The Omankrado of Kokwaado, Nana Kwodwo Sarpong III, said the project received support in the form of building materials from all the MPs who served the constituency and the KEEA Assembly during the execution of the project.

Nana Sarpong commended Dr Ato Quarshie, Dr J.S. Annan, both former MPs, and Dr Ato Arthur, who once served as a District Chief Executive for KEEA and through the assembly donated 200 pieces of roofing sheets towards the project.

Nana Sarpong said the people had constructed a two kilometre feeder road to help cart food and cash crops from farms and urged the MP and the assembly to assist in the construction of a culvert over a stream on the road to facilitate the movement of vehicles.

The Municipal Chief  Executive, Mr Isaac Kweku Sam, who donated GHC100.00 and 10 bags of cement, said a number of roads, including the Dutch Komenda, Nsadwer, Benyadze and the Dompoase Junction were to be rehabilitated to enhance accessibility of those areas.

Nana Kwodwo Ko III, who chaired the function, urged the people to maintain the communal spirit which had helped them to sustain the development of the community.

Nana Eduafo of Kafodzidzi promised to donate 20 bags of cement to support the chiefs and the people in their endeavour with the assembly also promising 200 bags of cement while the KEEA NDC donated GHC100.00.
