Mr. Kojo Bonsu, the Kumasi Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE), has expressed deep appreciation to members of the metropolitan assembly for approving his nomination.
Ninety-five (95) out of the 130-member assembly, representing 73 per cent, voted to give him the nod in an election supervised by the Electoral Commission (EC) on Tuesday.
Mr Bonsu in a statement signed in Kumasi, a copy of which was made available to the Ghana News Agency (GNA), also thanked President John Dramani Mahama for the opportunity and the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu 11, for his support.
He also expressed appreciation to the media and said he was confident that they would continue giving him the needed cooperation to restore Kumasi to its former status as the Garden City of West Africa.
He urged the people “to pull together to bring progress and transform conditions in the metropolis.”
