The Minister of National Security has assured the citizenry that there was no cause for alarm over cross-border activities that could destabilize the country.

The “Meet the Press” series, organized by the Gomoa Central District Assembly, was introduced by the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development and Information Ministry which government uses as a means in informing Ghanaians on how thier taxes are used.
The session aimed to tout the developmental projects carried out in the Gomoa District during the administration of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Government.

He went on to speak on the referendum, urging residents of the Gomoa Central to vote ‘YES’ for the election of Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chiefs Executives (MMDCEs) by the people.
According Central Regional Minister, Kwamena Duncan, the country, during the administration of the National Democratic Congress, had no option but to request assistance from the International Monetary Fund for a bailout upon failure of recruitment of nurses, medical staff teaching and non-teaching staff due to the appalling state of the economy at the time.
He added that the NPP government has made marvelous efforts to recruit a load of nurses and teachers, who some years ago were picketing the ministries for recruitment.
At the event, Benjamin Kojo Otoo, MP for Gomoa Central and Deputy Minister of Lands, Forestry and Natural Resources made known some 300 projects that had been executed over the past three years, which Mr Duncan commended.
