FIVE newly appointed Municipal and District Chief Executives (MDCEs) including a female in the Brong Ahafo Region, who have been confirmed by their various assemblies were recently sworn into office by the Brong Ahafo Regional Minister, Mr Ignatius Baffour Awuah at a brief ceremony held at the residency in Sunyani.
The appointees were Nana Atta Fena and Mr Atta Amponsah for the Wenchi and Dormaa Municipalities, Mr Ankamah Kyeremeh, Mr Boanyah Mensah and Madam Grace Donkor for the Sunyani West, Sene and the Nkoranza North Districts respectively.
Speaking at the swearing in ceremony, Mr Baffour Awuah urged the new appointees, to discharge their duties in a transparent manner with integrity, humility, respect and selflessness.
He reminded them that they were coming into office at the last lap of President Kufuor's two terms in office and therefore they must put in all their best, to move their respective areas of jurisdiction forward.
Mr Baffour Awuah called on the new appointees, not to meddle in chieftaincy matters and to also eschew all divisive tendencies that have the potential to breach the maintenance of law and order in their various municipalities and districts.
He stated that they as the heads of the municipal and district security councils must always be on top of security issues and expressed the hope that they would be opened to all shades of opinions that would help speed up the development of their areas.
Nana Atta Fena, the Municipal Chief Executive for Wenchi on behalf of his colleagues, thanked the President for nominating them and the assembly members for their endorsement.
He pledged that they would work assiduously to move their areas forward in order to justify the confidence reposed in them by the President and the assembly members to serve the people.
