N JUABEN: 4 new DCEs sworn into office

E/R Minister  

Four District Chief Executives of the newly created districts out of the five in the Eastern Region have been sworn into office at a colorful ceremony in Koforidua.
They are Winston Kwadwo Afari-Djan for Akwapim South, Derek Ohene Assifo Bekoe for Upper West Akim, Mike Ofori Darko for Ayensuano and Kwaku Ofori Abrokwa for Denkyembour district.

They swore the oath of Allegiance, Secrecy and Office.

Swearing them in, the Eastern Region Minister, Mr Victor Smith entreated them to think about the people they are to serve and let them see and feel the Better Ghana Agenda.

Mr Smith urged the new DCEs not to countenance indiscipline and anyone who intends to undermine the good works of the government. He cautioned them not to promise the people heaven and earth which they know is unrealistic.

The Regional Coordinating Director, Mr S.A Bawa advised the DCEs to be in full control of their assemblies by knowing the Local Government Act 462.

He said there are existing structures at the assemblies and it is important to respect and work within them. Mr. Bawa entreated them to establish good working relations with their workers in order to achieve the aims and objectives of their assemblies.

The Chief of Oyoko, a town near Koforidua, Nana Kodua Kesse reminded the new DCEs that in principle they are for everybody but in practice, they belong to a political party which they are not to disappoint.

Nana Kesse told them their appointment has come at a time that the nation has only few days to have another general election. They are therefore challenged to let the people understand the policies and projects the government has been able to institute.
