Mr Safah, nominated by President Akufo-Addo to replace the late Mr David Akwasi Asare, obtained 29 out of the total 34 votes cast by the Assembly members to secure his nomination. The Minister commended the Assembly for exhibiting strong unity and working together to improve the lives of the people.

The Deputy Minister for Local Government and Rural Development, Mr Augustine Collins Ntim, also stressed the importance of effective leadership in bringing development to the people. He commended the Assembly members for approving the nominee and called for support to enable him to discharge his duties effectively.

As the Member of Parliament for the area, Mr Ntim appealed to the people to rally behind the government as it worked to address the economic challenges of the nation. He emphasized that with effective leadership at the local level, development could be brought to the people, and the government’s vision of improving the lives of Ghanaians could be achieved.

In conclusion, the call for MMDCEs to exhibit transparency and effective leadership is crucial for the development of communities in Ghana. With the support of traditional leaders, assembly members, and the people, MMDCEs can unite and mobilize them for development in their communities. It is essential that MMDCEs work towards securing lands for future projects and ensure that they discharge their duties effectively to bring development to the people.
