Adaborkrom (W/R) Oct.13, GNA - The Bia East District Assembly on Friday confirmed Mr Kwame Twumasi Ankrah, the President’s nominee, as the District Chief Executive (DCE) at its first sitting at Adaborkrom.
All the 15 members of the assembly voted in favour of the nomination.
The assembly also elected Mr Joseph Apreku as the Presiding Member.
Mr Paul Evans Aidoo, Western Regional Minister, advised the DCE to operate an all- inclusive administration to enable people of all shades of political views to participate in the running of the district.
He said there should not be divisions in the newly created district to enable the people to support development programmes.
Mr Aidoo urged the DCE to ensure that funds allocated to the district are used for development programmes, adding that members of the assembly should eschew corruption which undermines development and progress.
Mr Ankrah thanked the President and the assembly for the confidence reposed in him and asked the traditional authorities and the people to support him to deliver.
