Mr. Albert Boakye Okyere, Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Ashaiman Municipal Assembly has urged Assembly members of its fourth Assembly to contribute in decision making to accelerate development in the Municipality.

He said the Constitution had empowered the state to make democracy a reality by decentralising the administrative and financial machinery of government, which afforded the opportunity for the people to participate in decision making at all levels of governance.

“It is for this reason that you have been elected by people to represent them in our participatory decentralised process of governance,” he said.

Mr. Okyere stated at the inauguration of the fourth Assembly of the Municipality.

A total of 25 Assembly members both elected and appointed together with 80 unit committee members were sworn into office at the ceremony by the Judge of the Ashaiman District Court, Mr. Charles Boateng.

Mr. Okyere said most of the Assembly Members had been re-elected and was convinced that they would bring on board their experience so newly sworn-in Members could benefit.

He said it was his prayer that both elected and appointed members would work together to transform the living standards of the people they served.

He expressed appreciation to former Assembly Members, Heads of Department, Electoral Commission for their support.

Nii Adjor Annang, the Regent of Ashaiman, charged the members not to use their offices to promote their selfish interest but to promote development in the Municipality.

He encouraged them to support initiatives and projects of the assembly and not be the ones to stand against such development.

He called on the government and other stakeholders to help protect the irrigation dam which supplied water to most crop farms within the community from encroachment.

Mr Azogi Ayagiba Ananga, Assembly Member for Nii Tetteh Amui East was elected unopposed to serve as the Presiding Member of the Assembly.
