KEEA Presiding member elections

The inauguration of newly elected Assemblymen and women in KEEA was successfully held. MCE Hon. Percy and Ing. Dr. Nana Ato Arthur were dissatisfied with the election of the presiding member.

On February 12, 2024, the KEEA Assembly office, headed by MCE Hon. Lawyer Solomon Ebo Appiah, together with Ing. Dr. Nana Ato Arthur, MP for KEEA Hon. Samuel Atta Mills, and many other dignitaries, met to inaugurate the newly elected Assembly men and women in the municipality.

The chairman of the occasion, Lawyer Daniel Arthur, urged all invited guests to help make the event a successful and memorable one.

Ing. Dr. Nana Ato Arthur, who is the Head of the Local Government Service in Ghana, read the presidential speech from Nana Addo Dankwah Akuffu Addo with the below notable points:
1. The president first congratulate them and welcomed them for their service to humanity.
2. Be mindful of their work and respect elders in the community and the municipality as a whole.
3. Urged them to communicate back to the various electoral areas every needed piece of information passed onto them from the assembly.
4. Resources may be limited, but they should be willing to support every contribution as and when it arises from the municipality to help the district run successfully.
5. Stop taking matters into their own hands and seek the correct and appropriate permission before giving commands for land use. This is how the future prevents flooding.
6. Seek the concern of authorities, e.g., pastors, chiefs, unit committee members, and others in decision-making.
7. Urge them to be accountable and selfless in their duties.

The MCE for KEEA, Hon. Lawyer Solomon Ebo Appiah, also told them that their office is always open and ready to listen and give them every necessary help they can offer. He concluded his speech by telling all the assembly members to work together, devoid of political party.

The event ended with the election for the new presiding member, which was unsuccessful after going into the polls for the second time.

First round.
1. Hon. Paul Akufful (Kissi East) had 20 votes out of the total 54 votes cast.
Hon. Michael Botsio (Eguafo, Breman, and Ponkrom electoral areas) had 34 votes.

Second round
1. Hon. Paul Akufful had 21
2. Hon. Michael Botsio had 33.

The MCE, Hon. Solomon Ebo Appiah, NPP Parliamentary Candidate, Hon. Percyval Dennis Quaicoe, and Ing. Dr. Nana Ato Arthur were very dissatisfied with the opposition party, NDC, for refusing to accept and vote for Hon. Botsio to be the new presiding member. According to them all, such an act delays development and has to stop. KEEA is well known for its commitment to such elections, and this is the first time such an incident has happened.

The MCE even begged them before the second election, but still, Hon. Botsio couldn’t win.
