The DCE for Ningo Prampram Hon. Al Latiff Amanor has called on stakeholders of the district to work together in unity and eschew tendencies of political differences to push the district forward, also of importance was the need to double up the collection of daily tolls to increase the Internally Generated Funds (IGF) base of the Assembly.
