Mr Stephen Donkor, who was nominated by President Nana Addo as District Chief Executive (DCE) for the Ellembelle District of the Western Region but rejected by the Assembly Members on May, 9 has declared his unflinching support for the newly nominated DCE, Kwasi Bonzo.
The nominee, who was rejected twice with 80% of dissenting votes out of the 52 Assembly Members during his confirmation, is calling on his supporters to rally behind Kwasi Bonzo he described as a brother.
Speaking to the media, the rejected DCE nominee, appealed to the 52 Assembly Members to confirm the President’s nominee for the sake of Ellembelle development indicating that he does not have anything bad against the President’s nominee. “I totally support Hon Kwasi Bonzo as DCE nominee and I wish him well”.
He also appealed to his supporters and sympathizers to remain calm and respect the President’s decision.
“I beg the Assembly Members who are planning to vote no against Hon Kwasi Bonzo because of me to stop and confirm him by 100%”, Hon Stephen Donkor pleaded.
Ellembelle District is lagging behind in terms of development as I speak to you other Districts in Ghana have started benefiting from the government policies thus one District, on factory program, one million Ghana cedis per each constituency and planting for food and jobs so I call on all the Assembly Members to confirm Hon Kwasi Bonzo so that we the people of Ellembelle District will also have our share of the national cakes”, he urged.
