Ghana: TDC to Undertake Three Major Projects in Kpone, Nungua & Tema

The Tema Development Corporation (TDC) is considering undertaking three major developmental projects, one each in the three traditional areas, or stools which contributed land to start the Corporation 60 years ago.

The three traditional areas or stools include the Kpone Traditional Council, Nungua Traditional Council and Tema Traditional Council.

The three major projects, which will be decided in collaboration with members of the three traditional areas, include a community center, clinic and school, and would be fully completed by the Corporation.

This was disclosed by the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Corporation, Mr. Emmanuel Oko Adjetey, at a corporate dinner organised by the TDC as part of its 60th Anniversary celebration at Tema last Friday.

Participants to the occasion were corporate and individual clients of the TDC, stakeholders, management and board members, as well as staff.

According to him, these three stools did so well by contributing their lands to commence the operations of the Corporation, and therefore, deserved to be given a token for their contributions.

Addressing the occasion, the Managing Director (MD) of the Corporation, Mr. Joe Abbey, said the institution, which started work 60 years ago, had been very successful, but due to population explosion and lack of development control and monitoring mechanisms, the Tema township had lost its beauty and charm.

However, at 60 years, the Corporation is mature, and as they celebrate their 60th Anniversary it was prudent that they reflect on their achievements and redefine their mandate to suit modern day trends.

He hinted that by this time next year, the Corporation would be able to present its new development policy direction to the general public, to show what it had under its sleeves, in terms of redefining its role in the estate development industry in Ghana.

Mr. Abbey said as part of the 60 years celebrations, the TDC donated items to the State School for the Deaf and Dumb, donated thousands of exercise books to schools in Tema, organised quiz competitions for SHS schools in Tema among things.
