The Majority Chief Whip in Parliament and Member of Parliament (MP) for Sunyani East, Kwasi Ameyaw Cheremeh, has reiterated government’s commitment to redeem its promises by initiating programmes and policies geared towards improving the living conditions of Ghanaians.
He assured that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) administration under Nana Akufo-Addo will set in motion a solid foundation for the country’s socio-economic development, as captured in the party’s manifesto, and further called on chiefs, donor partners and all stakeholders to partner government’s development agenda.
Ameyaw Cheremeh was addressing the Sunyani Traditional Council on Friday to officially introduce the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of the area, Evelyn Kumi Richardson to the council in Sunyani.
He explained that with the introduction of the decentralization concept, the power to initiate and develop an area in the country now depends mostly on the assemblies, and therefore tasked the MCE to liaise and cooperate with the chiefs for support to execute development interventions in the Municipality.
The MCE on her part, expressed gratitude to the chiefs for the warm reception and support accorded her during her confirmation, and pledged to cooperate with them in the development of the municipality.
She encouraged them to put her on her toes by drawing her attention when things are going out of hand in the discharge of her duties.
Evelyn Kumi Richardson pledged to operate an open door policy to promote sustainable development through the many social interventions by the NPP.
Nana Bosoma Asor Nkrawiri II, Omanhene of Sunyani on behalf of the council, pledged their support to the MCE, noting the development of Sunyani was the topmost priority of the council.
He commended the MCE for her desire to operate an open door policy and tasked her to welcome all constructive criticisms irrespective of the political differences she might have with the person.
The Omanhene further tasked the MCE to continue the execution of the Victoria Park and Civic Centre projects initiated by her predecessor to save the country’s investment, and drew attention to major roads in the municipality that need serious attention.
The MCE and her entourage later paid a courtesy call on the Regional Chief Imam, and on behalf of the President presented 10 bags of rice, sugar and an undisclosed amount of money to Muslims in the Municipality to assist with their fast.
