THE Ahafo-Ano District Assembly has unanimously approved the President’s nominee for the position of District Chief Executive (DCE), Mr David Addai-Amankwah.
At a special meeting of the assembly at Tepa, all the 49 members present voted to confirm Mr Addai-Amankwah’s nomination.
In his acceptance speech, Mr Addai-Amankwah expressed his gratitude to the President for offering him the opportunity to serve at the highest level in the district.
He also commended the assembly members for the confidence reposed in him and gave the assurance that he would team up with the members to ensure accelerated development of the district.
Mr Addai-Amankwah said it was important for the people to put political divisions behind them and work assiduously towards uplifting the image of the district.
The Ashanti Regional Minister, Mr Kofi Opoku-Manu, who was present at the meeting, thanked the assembly members for endorsing Mr Addai-Amankwah.
Mr Opoku-Manu appealed to Nananom and the people of the district to support the DCE to deliver.
“If he performs, it is for the benefit of you all, and if he fails, it affects you as well. I therefore appeal to you to support the DCE to perform,” the regional minister said.
The Omanhene of Tepa, Nana Adusei Atwenewa Ampem, who graced the occasion, urged the assembly to work as a team to develop the district, saying divisions in the assembly would not help the people in any way.
He advised the people of the district against writing anonymous letters about the DCE, but rather channel their grievances through the appropriate channels.
At the meeting, Mr Bismarck Osei, a member of the assembly, was elected Presiding Member, polling 47 out of the 49 votes cast.
