THE New Edubiase Constituency of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has appealed to President J.E.A. Mills to nominate a new DCE for the Adansi South District.
And in making the nomination, they further appealed to the President to consider Oheneba Kobena Andoh, a former Constituency Secretary of the party as District Chief Executive (DCE) for Adansi South.
At a news conference at New Edubiase, the Constituency Chairman of the party, Mr Festus Adade, said the entire party in the constituency was not happy about the absence of a DCE in the district and hoped the nomination of Oheneba Andoh would help speed up the development of the district.
Adansi South District in the Ashanti Region has not had a DCE since the NDC government took office.
The district assembly twice rejected the first nominee of the President, Mr Opoku Ampofo Manu and since then no one has been nominated for that position.
That compelled the constituency office of the NDC to organise a news conference at New Edubiase last Tuesday where the appeal for the nomination of Oheneba Andoh was made.
The constituency chairman indicated that the entire constituency was behind Oheneba Andoh “whose commitment, loyalty and hard work as a cadre and secretary to the party from 1992 to 2002 cannot go unrecognised.”
“His exploits and record as assembly member for three consecutive times coupled with his experience as sub-committee chairman on finance and social services speak volumes of his in-depth knowledge in local government,” he added.
Mr Adade noted that the New Edubiase Constituency had remained a stronghold of the NDC yet no DCE or any other political appointment had ever come from the constituency, since most appointees were often from the other part of the district (Adansi Asokwa Constituency).
He said the time had come for the President to reward the constituency with a DCE for their loyalty to the party over the years.
Mr Adade gave the assurance that notwithstanding the neglect of the constituency in terms of appointments, they would continue to remain solidly behind the NDC.
