THE Seikwa Tertiary Students Association (SETSA) has congratulated Mr Jones Samuel Tawiah on his confirmation as the District Chief Executive (DCE) for Tain.
The Tain District in the Brong Ahafo Region assumed such importance in the political history of the country when it became the decider for the winner of the Presidential run-off in the 2008 election.
A letter signed by the president of the association, Mr Addade Noah Justice, and copied to the press in Sunyani said the association had confidence in the capabilities of the new DCE and, therefore, pledged its support to assist him in his administration.
The association noted that Tain was bedevilled with numerous challenges such as poverty, unemployment and illiteracy.
“It is our hope that you will do your best to create unity which will enable the district to overcome these challenges.”
SETSA further commended the assembly members for the smooth manner in which the confirmation was done, adding that it was a sign of political maturity which was worthy of emulation.
The association also called on the DCE to involve the youth in his decision-making processes in order to prepare them for future leadership positions.
It reiterated the need for the district to do away with political sentiments and focus on the development of the district.
The association also urged chiefs of the area to use their divine wisdom to direct the DCE in order to give the district a facelift.
Mr Jones Samuel Tawiah, an educationist, emerged victorious in the first round of the confirmation exercise at Nsawkaw, with 78.3 per cent of the total votes cast.
