THE revenue staff of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) have congratulated the chief of Toase, Nana Asiama Poku Afrifa II, on his election to the Council of State.
They said Nana Asiama’s rich traditional background as a chief and a revenue man put him in a good position to bring some positive changes into the revenue generation of the various district assemblies in the region.
Speaking to the Daily Graphic in Kumasi after the revenue staff had paid a courtesy call on the chief to congratulate him on his election, the Chief Revenue Officer of the KMA, Mr James Akoto said during his days with the KMA as the head of revenue, Nana Asiama demonstrated dedication to duty and love for the metropolis and the nation by undertaking his duties with seriousness.
“He was honest and dedicated to his work and was loved by all his subordinates and superiors at the assembly”, he said.
Nana Asiama won the election to the Council of State, beating three other contestants including the New Patriotic Party (NPP’s) Chairman of the Council of Elders in the region, Mr Akenten Appiah-Menka.
Mr Akoto said the revenue staff were confident that his experience would translate into his new office as a Member of the Council of State.
He stated that as a member of the council, a lot would be expected of him because he would give advice to the President.
“This is a high office that calls for love for one’s nation and its people and we trust that Nana will once again score high marks there,” Mr Akoto said.
He also appealed to Nana Asiama to use his office to fight for development for the region.
