We Npp Youth Wing ( New Edubiase) within the New Edubiase Constituency have sought the need to join forces with non-political organization named Institute for Liberty and Policy Innovation (ILAPI-GHANA) to humbly insist that His Excellency Nana Adoo Dankwah Akuffo Addo should release the list of MMDCEs for the various Municipalities and Districts in the country as soon as possible. This must be done specifically to ensure smooth running of government processes and also maintain peace and problem-free among members of the Npp fraternity spreaded across the length and breadth of this country.
Obviously, the local government forms an integral part of the development of the nation and it makes local people clearly understand governance and decentralized system of government.
We are in the same bed with this non-political group as having the Regional Ministries in the absence of MMDCEs is totally meaningless which drives into yielding no results. Rightly, the Regional Ministries supervise the Metropolitan, Municipal and the District Assembly Chief Executives. We ask again, whom are they Regional Ministers going to check at the Municipal and District levels?
As a result of this, it has created a room for the Metropolitan, Municipal and District Coordinators to massage the rots invented by the previous NDC administration in support of the newly elected Presiding Members of the Assemblies.
In view of this, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwah Akuffo Addo and his government did device mechanisms in selecting these MMDCEs into the various Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies within the country. These mechanisms are as follows:
i. Consultation of Members of Parliament (MPs), Npp Constituency Chairmen and party Executives within the various Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies on whom they can effectively work with.
ii. Consultation of opinion leaders ( Kings, Chiefs and Queens) in the various constituencies within the Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies on who deem it best for this portfolio (MMDCE)
iii. Consultation of people (electorates) in the constituencies of the various Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies on who they consider best for that particular portfolio (MMDCE)
The ii and iii mechanisms were conducted by various non-political groups as well as Bureau of National Investigations (BNI).
Even though mechanism i is very important but is less effective because the MPs and Party Executives interests may differ from that the people (electorates) within the Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies. We can attest to the fact and bear in mind that these electorates outnumber the voices of the MPs and Party Executives so far as voting for a political party to rule a nation is concerned.
We the Npp Youth Wing ( New Edubiase) in the New Edubiase Constituency have considered the ii and iii mechanisms as the most important tool in selecting the MMDCEs because it is the opinion leaders and people in the constituencies within the Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies know the best person whom they can work hand in hand with to ensure better development within the Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies.
It is clear indication that, each and everyone whose name will be mentioned to fill MMDCEs portfolio will create misunderstandings and quarellsome among people within Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies. For peace and harmony to prevail, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwah Akuffo Addo must mention the person people want to work with to cool hot water down within the shortest possible time.
We as a pro-Npp group humbly advise His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwah Akuffo Addo to be circumspect in dealing with this MMDCEs issues that is why these candidates presented themselves for vetting and submitted their Curriculum Vitae (CV) as well. We entreat His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwah Akuffo Addo to scrutinize their CVs very well to verify and select who can work to uplift the image of Npp government and also limit the degree of misunderstandings among the people (electorates) after the names have been released.
In conclusion, we the Npp Youth Wing ( New Edubiase) in the New Edubiase Constituency will respectfully entreat His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwah Akuffo Addo should select people to fill the MMDCES portfolio based on these criteria and are as follows:
i. a person must be a politician who has served the party at essential levels over a period of time
ii. a person who has total commitment for both the party and the work as Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assembly Chief Executive
iii. a person whom the opinion leaders ( Kings, Chiefs and Queens) in the constituencies within the Metropolitan, Municipal and Districts deem it best to work with. This must be critically considered because the voice of the people (electorates) is the strength of Npp as a political party
iv. Lastly, we entreat His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwah Akuffo Addo to select a person who will let the degree of misunderstandings and quarellsome that will generate among people after the names have been mentioned to be solved at the shortest possible time since His Excellency has reiterated that, his government in hurry to move the country forward.
LONG LIVE GHANA
