Municipal and District Chief Executives in the Savannah Region have been advised to involve stakeholders in their activities, Alhaji Iddrisu Sulemana popularly known as professor Kalomonia, Savannah Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), who gave the advice said that would offer such peoples the opportunity to put their knowledge and expertise at the disposal of the region.
Prof. Kalomonia gave the advice at Damongo during the swearing in of the recently confirmed five MDCEs in the region.
He appealed to the MDCEs to bury their differences with people and moved together in building a formidable party in the area.
He urged the MDCEs to be transparent in their administration. Prof Kalomonia urged the MDCES and party leadership to see consensus building as an important activity to ensure a successful tenure.
Prof Kalomonia, therefore, pleaded with the 5 Municipal and District Chief Executives (MDCEs ) who successfully went through the approval process, to show much commitment to work, so as to promote the development of their respective areas.
He called on them to work closely with the stakeholders and party faithfuls, failure of which could pose problems for them.
