The demand for electricity at the new municipal education office in Tarkwa will soon be over as Goldfields Ghana Limited, Tarkwa Mine, has promised to award a contract soon to connect electricity to the edifice.
According to the company, its corporate social responsibility considered initiatives on education as a major component of its community development agenda.
This was disclosed on Wednesday at a community consultative meeting organized by Goldfields Ghana Limited, Tarkwa mine for its catchment communities and stakeholders within the Tarkwa Nsuaem municipality.
The Tarkwa municipal education office which was commissioned in 2008 has since been operating without electricity and this has made working there quite difficult.
Mrs Christina Kobinah, the Municipal Chief Executive Officer for Tarkwa Nsueam, who was present at the meeting on her part, thanked Goldfields Ghana Limited, Tarkwa mine for their contribution towards the development of the municipality and the nation as a whole.
She said with the connection of electricity to the office, work will be easier for the staff and that the assembly is doing its best to develop other communities in the municipality as well.
She appealed to mining companies not to be upset with the increment of their tax adding that this will help government develop the country. GNA
