The District Chief Executive Officer of Adansi North District in the Eastern Region, Hon. Kusi Kwaku Eric, who has declared his intention for the Presidency of the National Association of Local Authorities of Ghana, NALAG, has elaborated plans towards the strengthening of Ghana’s local governance system.
Speaking to Yagbon News, he said he decided to make his intentions known to the public since the Association is done with the Regional conferences and gearing towards the national conference.
According to him, for now he can’t tell how many people are pursuing for the same position with him.
Hon. Eric, who is the current DCE for Adansi North since 2017, considers himself a young strategist, says he entered the race because he believes NALAG has to play a role deserving of its members.
With a mission statement captioned as Agenda People’s NALAG, he outlined his vision should he be given the nod as the president of NALAG.
“The welfare of Hon. members would be my number one priority,God willing if given the nod”, he noted.
Hon. Eric believes that there’s strength in numbers and that NALAG has the numbers and hence members must use their numerical advantage to push for their welfare.
He says in making NALAG vibrant, he will make NALAG the people’s NALAG, thus, people centred.
Sub-structures works would work effectively, that is there will be functionality of sub- structures, he added.
He furthered that, he will make NALAG, vibrant, relevant and demand driven and not only an executive one but adaptive too.
He also assures of a team work and an all-inclusive governance “one man show” will be a thing of the past, God willing if given the opportunity to serve.
The establishment of a NALAG TV is also one of his visions and assures that flow of information to Hon. Members will be on regular basis.
The Adansi North DCE believes that, once he he was an Assemblyman and a Presiding Member he understands the plight and challenges of Hon. Members and for that matter he is on a better position to drum home their needs and challenges and for the betterment of the association.
