The Youth for Democratic Principles has been following the activities of the Coastal Belt Development Authority under the ministry of Special Development Initiatives executing the One Million per Constituency program through the IPEP ( Infastructure for Poverty Eradication Program) program.
We are indeed proud and happy about the projects and activities so far and would like to congratulate the Deputy C.E.O.s working around the clock to see to the success of this program, especially Mr. Emmanuel Afram Anim who has exhibited strong leadership qualities since the beginning of this program till date. He is currently the acting C.E.O for the coastal belt development authority.
Mr. Emmanuel Afram Anim is very affable, hardworking and humble. He is usually found at the grassroots, practically with the people and is praised across the four regions under the coastal belt development authority (Central, Western, Greater Accra and Volta Regions) for his achievements chalked so far.
These four regions are currently benefiting from:
1. 10-Seater Water Closet Institutional Toilets with Mechanized Boreholes – 383
2. Community-Based Mechanized Solar Powered Water Systems – 380
3. 1,000 metric tonnes Prefabricated Warehouses – 15

Consistently, Ghana has not been successful in achieving its own Medium Term National Development Framework right from Vision 2020 through to GPRS I and II and GSGDA I and II. This is basically due to lack of political commitment by successive governments to roll out decisive programs directed at comprehensively dealing with our local infrastructural developmental, social and economic challenges; which includes putting in practical measures to eradicate poverty.
The story has, however, been different with the inception of the NPP government under the leadership of H.E President Akufo Addo. His commitment to the local and global development agenda as contained in the NPP’s manifesto ” Change: An agenda for jobs. Creating prosperity and equality for all” has been commendable so far.
The provision of water and toilets facilities is key in eradicating poverty and inequality and is targeted at meeting the SDG No.6: Ensuring the Availability and Sustainability of Water and Sanitation for All by 2030.
With the Constituencies’ Specific Needs Projects rolling out soon, we the Y.D.P entreat the leadership and the presidency to confirm Mr Emmanuel Afram Anim as the substantive C.E.O of the Coastal Belt Development Authority to enable him continue the good work that has been started. We believe that his selfless leadership and zeal will culminate in the success of this Program, and that of the aspirations of the President Nana Akuffo Addo led NPP Government.
The Youth Need your Leadership…
The Grassroots Awaits You…
Mr Afram Anim is Capable…
Yes He Can…
Long live C.B.D.A
Long Live Ghana…
Nana Kofi Ntiamoah
