Communities in Assin have been urged to form progress and developmental association to improve on human development and development programmes instead of spending monies on funerals.
That according to the President of the Assin Progress and Development Association (APDA), Mr George Nana Kojo Nkyi, when done in collaboration with Assembly members, Nananom and Unit committees would help draw strategies to initiate development.
Mr. Nkyi made the call at the handing over ceremony of the outgoing executives to the new administration of the University of Cape Coast, Cape Coast Polytechnic, Assin Students Union (ASSU) branches at Cape Coast.
He said APDA had made a paradigm shift to help the needy more than the dead and advised all communities in Assin to form laudable associations.
He explained that Assin Endua had started the move and other towns like Assin Berku, Assin Nyankumasi, Assin Andoe, Assin Akropong, Assin Darmang, Asin Atobiase, Assin Bosomadwe, and Assin Praso among others were also to form branches.
Mr. Nkyi said Assin with many prominent people must come on board to ensure the development of the communities.
A lecturer at Cape Coast Polytechnic, Mr. Mbroh said Assin’s are noted for their disciplined life and therefore urged the students to be disciplined, learn hard and set an exemplary life for their juniors to emulate.
He congratulated the out-gone executives for their impact and work done.
The incoming executives pledged to continue the good work done by their predecessors.
