Member of Parliament for North Tongu Constituency Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has indicated that he is willing to work together with the District Chief Executive (DCE) to ensure the District experiences the needed development.
More often than not, DCEs and their Members of Parliament who are supposed to work together tend to clash due to the various interests they represent when they don’t belong to the same political party.
It has been one of the banes of decentralization in Ghana.
But the Member of Parliament for North Tongu says he will relegate politics and political difference and work hand in hand with the District Chief Executive for the development of their district.
Making this known in a post shared on Facebook, the Member of Parliament (MP) said “I have this morning called the President’s nominee for DCE of North Tongu, Mr. Osborn Divine Fenu to congratulate him and to convey my very best wishes for the journey ahead.We pledged to relegate partisan differences and work together to improve living conditions of our people.As MP and DCE, we cannot afford to fail the revered chiefs and great people of North Tongu”.
Announcement of MMDCEs
The President of Ghana through the Local Government and Regional Reorganization Minister Dan Botwe announced Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executive Officers (MMDCEs) for the 260 assemblies across the country.
In all, there are 222 men and 38 women occupying the Chief Executive positions in the various assemblies across the country.
The President announced his nominees nine months after his second term mandate was renewed by the Ghanaian people; something that didn’t sit well with local government analysts who believe the President’s delay hampered the development across the country.
