The list of Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Chief Executive (MMDCE) nominees has been finalized by President Akufo-Addo and will be released Thursday.
The Director of Communications at the Presidency, Eugene Arhin who announced this on his Facebook page indicated that the list will be submitted to the Minister for Local Government, Decentralisation and Rural Development, Dan Botwe on Thursday morning who will make an announcement shortly after.
“List of MMDCE nominees finalized 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” Eugene Arhin posted.
Many Ghanaians have been asking questions about the delay in the release of the MMDCEs by the President.
President Akufo-Addo early this month said the list for Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) will be released before the end of September.
According to President Akufo Addo “the last time we were in office we found ourselves making new appointments before the elections”.
He added,” I want to make sure of the people I am calling to help me. It is not an easy task. There is the need for a broad consultation, that is what I have done”.
President Akufo-Addo explained that “I set up committees to make recommendations, I have to make sure that the recommendations would suit the political purposes of the government. By the end of September, everything would be resolved.”
