LaDMA Donates Towards Eid-ul Fitr
By John N. Doku (Municipal Information Officer)
The La Dade-Kotopon Municipal Assembly (LaDMA) during the month of June donated food items worth over Fifty Thousand Ghana Cedis (Gh¢ 50,000.00) to the Muslims Communities within the municipality. The items included 160 bags of rice, 45 boxes of frytol oil, 14 bags of sugar and 35 cartons of tin tomatoes.
Presenting the items, the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of LaDMA, Hon. Gladys Mann- Dedey appealed to the Muslims to help fight lawlessness in the municipality. “They always refer to La as the beautiful town, but have formed the unhealthy habit of open defecation and dumping of refuse into drains causing sicknesses and floods whenever it rains. This is not helpful and unacceptable as a citizenry”, she bemoaned.
The MCE also took the opportunity to warn drinking bar operators who have formed the habit of operating on the pavement and parts of the roads during the night to desist from the practice or face the full rigors of the law.
“In recent times, our brethren who operate drinking bars take to the pavement and parts of the road for their operations. I am taking this opportunity to advise them to desist from the practice or face the wrath of the Assembly,” she stated.
Hon. Gladys Mann-Dedey further advised bereaved families who hold funerals on the streets for want of space to vacate the roads after 4 p.m. to allow free flow of traffic in the municipality. “Though you have sought permission the roads must not be blocked for the whole day,” she grieved.
Receiving the items, Alhaji Ibrahim Laytei Mensah the Imam of La Muslims Community thanked the MCE for the items and assured her the total support of the La Muslims to the assembly for developmental project and also the fight to eradicate lawlessness in the municipality.
Other groups who benefited from the donation include the Dade-kotopon Muslim Community and the Cantonments Police Muslim Community.
