Ghana’s Minister of Transport, Hon. Kwaku Ofori Asiamah, has commissioned an ultramodern DVLA Office in Techima, the Bono East Regional Capital.

The newly Bono East Regional Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency office, is located at Hansua, off the Techiman-Kumasi road and will play a crucial role in ensuring road safety and regulating drivers and vehicles as the office will be responsible for issuing driver’s licenses, vehicle registrations, and conducting various tests and inspections to ensure compliance with traffic regulations.

Additionally, the office also provides opportunities for increased public awareness and education on road safety, as well as the introduction of innovative services and initiatives aimed at improving driver competence and responsible driving behavior.

Mr. Frank Davies (Esquire), Board Chairman of the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA), while addressing the gathering during the commissioning of the new DVLA office, debunked rumors that the NPP led government created six (6) new regions without any plan of providing the regions with infrastructures for their operations.

He revealed that, aside from the Bono East Regional DVLA office, the sitting government have carried out massive infrastructural constructions including a gargantuan Regional Coordinating Council building with bungalows or Residencies for Regional Minister, RCC Senior Staffs and Police among Others.

Mr. Davies further explained that,  the NHIA, Ghana Education Service, Immigration Service and several other Government Agencies have Offices under construction scattered all over the municipalities/districts in the newly created regions and therefore challenged all those doubting the achievement of the government in terms of providing the six new regions with infrastructures to pay a visit to the Bono East Region and the other five new regions to verify the massive developmental projects undertaken by the Nana Addo Dankwa led government for themselves.

“Nanom, we are members of this government and we have heard some politicians saying the NPP government has only created new regions without providing them with the insfrastructures to work with, they constantly asked what the government has done for Bono East, I will like those asking such questions to come to Bono East because if not anything, we have build a DVLA regional office in Techiman”

“We will build office at Savana, North East, and Oti regions, we will also renovate our office at the North-West region and that of  Goaso in the Ahafo Region, so if someone says NPP government has done nothing in the new regions, just tell the person to come to Techiman to see the DVLA office” He said

Lawyer Frank Davies used the opportunity to urge voters within the Techiman South Constituency to vote massively for Hon. Martin Adjei-Mensah Korsah came December 7th to propel him to continue with the development of Techiman South.

The Minister for Transport, Hon. Kwaku Ofori Asiamah, expressed his profound gratitude to the Techiman Traditional Council for releasing the land for the construction of the building free of charge.

“I will use this opportunity to thank Nananom, we have some chiefs in the country that charges government before they give us lands for developmental projects in their own communities, but when we cam to you for the land, you said if we will use it to build a DVLA office, then you will give it to us freely and indeed you did that so we are very grateful.”

“Nana we will employ to assist the officers at this office to help preserve the building because we have a problem of maintenance in the country so we humbly employ to assist the authorities in maintaining this office because if we all do not come on board to maintain it, it may be destroyed in the next three years.” Hon. Kwaku Ofori Asiamah disclosed.

The Chief of Hansua, who doubles as the Baamuhene of the Techiman Traditional Council, Nana Apenteng Fosu Gyeabuor II, encouraged staff of the office to be diligent in discharging their duty and do so without any fear or favor.
