The New Juaben South Municipal Assembly (NJSA)has bemoaned the continuous regrettable performances of its substructures, especially the Zonal Councils.

Despite some efforts being made by the Assembly to restructure the Zonal Councils to function effectively, their performances such as revenue generation have been abysmal.

Speaking to Class News' McAnthony Dagyenga, in Koforidua after addressing the first session of the first Assembly of the NJSA, Isaac Appaw-Gyasi, the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), said in some cases, these weak Zonal Councils rather than augmenting to solve challenges, end up contributing to the problems.

He however assured that his office would work at ensuring that the powers and functions delegated to the Zonal Councils would yield expected results.

Mr. Appaw-Gyasi said the Assembly was already working with Star-Ghana to resuscitate and strengthen all the Zonal Councils in the municipality.

The MCE also gave the assurance that the Municipality Security Council was putting in place measures to curb armed robbery and burglary in the municipality.
