Acting District Chief Executive (DCE) for the Bongo District Peter Ayinbisa has admonished the people of Bongo to accept whoever the President appoints as DCE for the district.
In a Facebook post, Eugene Arhin who is the Director of Communications at the Presidency said Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has made his choices and has forwarded the final list to the Local Government and Regional Development Minister Dan Botwe to announce the nominees.
“List of MMDCE nominees finalised by President Akufo-Addo; it will be submitted in the morning to the Minister for Local Government, Decentralisation and Rural Development, Hon. Dan Botwe. Expect the list to be announced by the Minister very soon.”
In a statement as the country awaits for the list of the President’s nominees, Peter Ayinbisa who became popular for his “Bongo Water” comment asked that the President’s nominee be accepted in good faith for the forward going of the Bongo District.
“As we await the announcement of the next DCE of our District, I want to urge all of you to remain steadfast and committed to the democratic credentials of our great party. We have come a very long way in our quest and struggle to positively influence the Electoral fortunes of our party in the District over the years through thick and thin,” he said.
Adding that “Desirous to annex the Constituency for the party and working together as a family, we were able to galvanize votes for our party.
Though we didn’t win the seat, we made very significant inroads and improvements in an undeniable stronghold of the NDC. The appointment of MMDCEs is the prerogative of His Excellency the President”.
“We should not allow ourselves to be used by others to perpetuate acts of violence which has the highest tendency of furthering the cracks that already exists, either real or perceived in our party. All potential celebrants must be mindful of the fact that we all believe in one ideology and will need one another come 2024 and beyond. I’ am of the strongest conviction that, the President will do the needful to meet the admiration of all. I am committed to the course of the party and will urge you and all our following to do same. It is not about do-or-die. Let us all remain calm and resolute behind the president. God bless us all.”
Meanwhile, in a document leaked on social media on the recommendations made by the Committee setup to help the president make an informed choice, the DCE for Bongo, Peter Ayinbisa will not be maintained as the committee recommended Ayambire Cletus Innocent and Diana Aduko Aburiya Asuure to be considered for nomination. It further recommended that Madam Diana Aburiya be appointed for a different portfolio in case she is not nominated for the DCE position and Mr. Cletus Ayambire Innocent appointed Regional NHIS Director if he is also not nominated, stating that both of them have served the party well.
