New assembly confirms chief executive

Mr Michael Ofori Darko, a former Senior Editor of the Ghanaian Times, was on Wednesday confirmed by the Ayensuano District Assembly as the District Chief Executive (DCE).

All the 37 assembly members present voted for him which represents a 100 percent confirmation.

Mr Ebenezer Okletey Terlabi, the Deputy Eastern Regional Minister, commended the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development for creating more districts.

He said it was part of the government’s agenda of “Better Ghana” to improve on the decentralization system and to develop all areas in the country and that the creation of the district would lead the creating of more jobs and the assembly would have its own fund to develop the area.

He appealed to the people to reciprocate the gesture by voting massively for the National Democratic congress (NDC) in the December polls so that they would continue to benefit from the “Better Ghana Agenda.”

Mr Terlabi appealed to the new DCE to cooperate with all the people of the area, especially the chiefs, to bring development to the district.

Mr Darko expressed appreciation to the assembly for the confidence reposed in him and pledged to partner with all to move the district forward.
