MMDCE nominees—President Akufo-Addo’s nominees for Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies across the country have been released by the government.
Dan Botwe, the Minister for Local Government at his press conference on Sunday, September 19, 2021, confirmed that the list has been submitted to the regional ministers.
“They (Regional Ministers) are going to contact from tomorrow, Regional Directors of the Electoral Commission, get in touch with the Presiding Members of the various Assemblies and start the process of confirming Mr President’s nominees,” he said.
He also condemned the demonstrations embarked on by some party faithful following rumours that some MMDCEs have not been retained.
Mr Botwe stated that regardless of who has been chosen by the President, all MMDCEs, like other government appointees, have been selected to serve the community just like all others.
“Well-meaning Ghanaians know that we all are aspiring to serve our motherland and if an opportunity is not given at a particular time for you to serve there cannot be any reason whatsoever, why there should be a disturbance,” he added.
Regional ministers will be contacting the Electoral Commission, which will begin the process for electing various members to the assembly.
