Touching on robbery and social vices in the Municipality, Hon. Opoku Agyemang Bonsu stated in his report that, though the Pragya tricycle Operators appear to be faster and low rate, however they have no serious regulatory framework governing their influx and riding.

According to him, most riders are underage so their activities cause traffic jams on the highway. Aside their reckless driving, some of the operators are alleged to have been engaged in robbery and other social vices in the municipality.

He therefore said the Assembly and the Municipal Police Command have taken measures to regulate their prices and activities arrest and prosecute flouters.

With regard to the 2023 Composite Budget, the MCE stated in his report that the Budget Officer presented the draft Composite Budget covering the DACF, GOG Compensation, Goods and Services, DACF/RIG, donor funded programmes, IGF and Ghana Secondary Cities Programme Grant amounting to GH¢65, 530.263.31 with its corresponding estimated expenditure of GH¢65, 530.263.31.
