THE Ejisu-Juaben Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Mr Mohammed Boakye Agyemang has called for support from traditional rulers in the municipality to enable him to lead efforts aimed at accelerating the pace of development of the area.
He observed the important role traditional rulers played in community development and said “This is what I will need from Nananom to achieve progress for our area.”
Mr Agyemang stated this when he paid a courtesy call on the Juabenhene, Nana Otuo Siriboe II at his palace.
The visit enabled the MCE to formally introduce himself to the Omanhene and his chiefs in the traditional area following his swearing in as the political head of the municipality.
Mr Agyemang stated that he could not start work without first seeking the blessing of traditional rulers of the land, hence the visit to the Juabenhene.
He thanked President Mills for the confidence reposed in him and gave the assurance that he would not disappoint the President.
The MCE also thanked Nananom, assembly members and the entire population for the support given him just after his nomination by the President, which translated into his confirmation by the assembly.
Mr Agyemang promised to do everything possible to ensure that together they worked to develop the area.
Welcoming the MCE, the Juabenhene congratulated him on his assumption of office and pledged the unflinching support of the chiefs and people to ensure the success of his administration.
He called for unity in the municipality to ensure that the people moved forward in unison towards progress.
Nana Siriboe also called on the assembly to ensure fair distribution of resources in the municipality.
