CHIEFS in the Sefwi Akontombra District of the Western Region have appealed to the President to consider the nomination of Mr Joseph Bernard Boadu, the defeated NDC parliamentary candidate for the Nhyiaeso Constituency in the Ashanti Region in the 2008 elections, as the District Chief Executive (DCE).
They described Mr Boadu as “trustworthy, hardworking and truthful” and said the district needed such a man to help advance the development agenda of the area.
A statement signed by 18 chiefs in the district said, “Nananom have endorsed the application of Mr Boadu for consideration for the post of DCE and believe that we will receive positive response”.
The statement said as a new district, Akontombra had many problems, which called for unity to solve them.
“It is in the light of this that we think Mr Boadu, who has proved to be a man for all, is the right person for the job,” the statement said.
The statement listed some of the positions held by Mr Boadu in the past, in which he excelled as Unit Committee Chairman for Ackaakrom, Zonal Chairman of NDC at Ackaakrom, assembly member for Ackaakrom-Kojokrom Electoral Area and Executive Member of the Sefwi Wiawso District Assembly.
“We assure you that accepting our proposal would go a long way for the young and energetic Mr Joseph Bernard Boadu to serve his people as he worked tirelessly for the NDC party at Nhyiaeso Constituency.”
Among the signatories to the statement were Nana Kwaw-Esiafam II, Chief of Sefwi Sikaneasem; Nana Kwame Boah, Asokwahene; Nana Kwarteng Ababio, Akontombrahene, and Nana Kwaku Nkuah, Asiekromhene.
