Asante Asamang natives base in Europe and USA have provided 100 street bulbs to the people of Asante -Asamang Community of Ashanti Region.
Speaking to an Executive Member of the Asante-Asamang Natives in Diaspora Association, Mr. Kwabena Osei Wusu, based in Europe and USA stated that, they came to support their community with these bulbs due to the town roads that they heard the government is coming to do for their community which most of this light poles will be affected during the construction of the town roads.
He said, it is through that, that motivated them to organize themselves, set up some funds to relocate such poles for the contractor to get access for the road construction.
He stressed that, after the relocation of the poles, they saw the need to provide those bulbs they have provided as their Community becomes dark at night which will eventually be a problem if they live it in that manner.
He disclosed that, 40 of the 100 hundred bulds were sent to Asante Asamang areas, where the remaining 60 were given to the people of Asamang.
He finally disclosed that, they did this donation to strengthen the unity among the diasporas from Asante Asamang, to help develop the community for the good of all. Some of the Association members like Mrs. Rita Osei, Mr.Joe Sarpong also visit the areas to the see the lighting in the communities.
Hon. George Osei Asumaning, the Assembly Member for Asante Asamang electoral area and Chairman for Asante Asamang area Council commended the Association for their gesture, explained their challenges concerning the street bulbs where the one they are being given by the Assembly are not enough but called on residents of Asante Asamang, who resides in abroad should learn from what their brothers and sisters have done to come and support them as the government can’t do it alone.
