Sunyani,- The Sunyani Traditional Council (STC) has inaugurated the Sunyani Development Stakeholders’ Association to spearhead the development of the city.

Nana Sarbeng said Sunyani was for many years left behind in the provision of national developmental projects.
Hence, the need for the Association, as a pressure group, to champion the cause of Sunyani’s development.
Nana Sarbeng cited educational infrastructure, roads, and markets among many important on-going projects, which were yet to be completed.
“This phenomenon is incomprehensible and has become a source of worry to us,” he said and appealed to the government to include the immediate facelift of Sunyani on the national development agenda.
