Effutu NDC to petition President Mills on boundary anomaly
The Effutu Constituency of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has assured the residents it would petition the Government to rectify any anomaly in the 2007 boundary demarcation of the area.
This was contained in a press statement signed by the constituency chairman, Mr Kojo Asamoah Bondzie and copied to the Ghana News Agency in Winneba.
According to the statement, the demarcation exercise that gave the area a Municipal status with the creation of other nearby districts led to the placement of some communities, which were formally under the Effutu Administration, under other districts.
“In setting the record straight, we wish to state categorically that Mr Mike Hammah has no oversight responsibility at the Local Government Ministry that has the sole responsibility in the establishment of (MMDCES) in the country.”
The statement said in 2007, Mr Mike Hammah, Member of Parliament for the Area, was not also in government at the time of the demarcation.
“We assure the good people of this Municipality that we will take good steps through the relevant statutory bodies to petition his Excellency the President, through the Ministry of Local government and Rural Develop, to make sure that this anomaly is rectified and Winneba given it proper status as a Municipal Assembly in terms of the said bound dispute,” it said.
