Mr Edward Doe Adade, the Assembly member for Tatorme Fiato Electoral Area, who organised the exercise, disclosed to the Ghana News Agency it was his desire to ensure his electorates benefitted from the government’s health insurance policy which existed for years. 

He said apart from paying for the insurance scheme for his people, he also brought development projects such as the provision of potable drinking water to his people. 

Mr Adade, who is also a member of the Justice and Security Sub-Committe of the Akatsi South Municipal Assembly, said he also extended electrification projects and the provision of streetlight to his electoral area, while focusing on education, security, among others to improve the standard of living in the area.

Some residents outside the electoral area also took part in the exercise.
