Adentan Municipal Assembly (AdMA) took a significant step towards fostering community engagement by organizing a stakeholders’ meeting at Ogbojo Promush Forecourt on Sunday, June 11, 2023. The event brought together representatives from various sectors, including resident associations, traders, transport operators, traditional authorities, and assembly members.

The primary objective of this gathering was to establish an interactive platform where stakeholders could voice their concerns and collaborate on finding viable solutions for the municipality’s challenges. Honorable Alexander Nii-Noi Adumuah, the Adentan Municipal Chief Executive, addressed the participants and encouraged them to freely express their grievances, emphasizing that the meeting aimed to cater to their needs and aspirations.

During his address, Honorable Adumuah stated, “Today, we are in Nii Ashaley zonal council, specifically Ogbojo electoral area, to understand the issues you believe need attention. We want to hear what makes you happy and what concerns you. The idea is to provide you with an opportunity to share your thoughts. Sometimes you may have complaints, and other times you may want to commend us for the work we are doing, but you don’t always have the chance to communicate with us. So, we have come to you. Open your hearts and talk to us.”

In addition to the interactive session, representatives from the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) took advantage of the occasion to address misconceptions surrounding the scheme. They clarified that the NHIS offers coverage for a wide range of diseases and medical conditions, countering the common belief that it only caters to painkillers and consultations. The NHIS team also urged attendees to ensure they possessed an NHIS card and encouraged stakeholders to book appointments to facilitate the registration of their members onto the scheme.

Furthermore, Stanley Otabel Donkor led a team from the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) to highlight an innovative initiative related to property rate collection under the assembly.Mr. Donkor introduced “Myassembly.gov.gh,” an online platform designed to enable property owners to make payments conveniently from home. The system also displays the annual payment amount after registration.Mr Donkor emphasized the flexibility of the platform and encouraged attendees to visit the assembly for assistance with registration and guidance on its usage.

The stakeholders’ meeting provided a valuable opportunity for participants to seek clarification on NHIS-related matters and the new property rate collection initiative. It also allowed them to contribute their suggestions on developmental issues within their communities and the broader municipality.

Overall, the engagement session at Ogbojo Promush Forecourt demonstrated AdMA’s commitment to inclusive governance and its dedication to addressing the concerns of its constituents. By actively involving stakeholders, AdMA aims to foster collaboration, build trust, and create a better future for all residents of the Adentan Municipality.
