Walewale (N/R), Feb. 19, GNA – Assembly Members of the West Mamprusi District of the Northern Region on Thursday overwhelmingly voted to confirm Mr David Wuni, the president’s nominee for the position of District Chief Executive (DCE) for the area.
All 41 Member Assembly voted in favour of the nominee, which gives him an overwhelming 100 per cent confirmation, the first to secure such votes since the creation of the assembly.
The same Assembly in November last year voted to reject Mr Alidu Iddrisu Zakari, an earlier nominee, who failed to secure the necessary votes, which could give him a second chance of consideration.
Alhaji Limuna Mohammed-Muniru, Northern Regional Minister commended the assembly members for their sense of purpose and assured that the district would receive the needed development that it deserved.
He said, ‘I am happy and I know President Mahama would be happy the way you have accepted his nominee in one voice and I am assuring you on behalf of the President that development would never elude any part of the country including this district’.
He said it was important for assembly members to remain united and chart a common path of development to fight hunger, disease and poverty, which were enemies of progress.
Mr David Wuni, the DCE thanked President Mahama for nominating him and also the Assembly Members for their acceptance and assured that he would work harder to justify the confidence reposed in him.
He appealed to Assembly Members to exhibit the love, wisdom and the togetherness that led to his overwhelming endorsement in all spheres of their dealings and activities to ensure that the development agenda of the area was carried forward.
‘Let us desist from acts that would derail the development process of the assembly and come together as one family devoid of political affiliation to transform the area especially in areas of education, health, sanitation and agriculture’, he advised.
Mr Wuni, who is a 40-year-old teacher at the Kalpohin Senior High School, in Tamale, said he would run an open door administration to ensure that everyone was part of the development process, saying, ‘In this way if I fail I take the blame and if I succeed the assembly takes the credit’.
The election was supervised by officials from the Electoral Commission.
