Members of the Asokwa Municipal Assembly have unanimously confirmed Akwanuassah Gyimah, the president’s nominee for municipal chief executive.
Gyimah was nominated by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to serve for a second term as the MCE for Asokwa.
He garnered a total of 18 votes out of the 18 valid votes cast.
Gyimah thanked everyone in Asokwa for the support given him so far. However, he called for more support from assembly members, chiefs and all residents in the municipality to help him carry out the vision of the president.
The Asokwa Municipal Assembly was carved out of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) in 2018.
The Minister of Local Government, Decentralisation and Rural Development, Dan Botwe, released the full list of metropolitan, municipal and district chief executive (MMDCE) nominees at a press conference on Sunday in Accra.
