Honourable Adziamah Emelia was nominated by the president of the republic of Ghana, His Excellency President Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo after a committee was set up to recommend those who qualified in the race.
After the nomination, the assembly members are to vote to either confirm or reject the nominee. Should the nominee not get more than fifty percent of the valid votes cast, it is an outright rejection and a new person would have to be nominated. But in case the nominee has over fifty percent but less than two third of the valid votes cast, a second chance is therefore given to the assembly members to either confirm or reject the nominee within ten days.
Agotime Ziope District has twenty two assembly members and during the first confirmation, there were 12 yes votes representing approximately 54% and 10 no votes representing approximately 46%.
By law, the nominee qualified for a run off which was held today.
The results for the run off that confirms her massively are, 20 yes votes representing 91%, 2 no votes representing 9% and 0 rejected ballots.
This goes to confirm madam Adziamah Emelia as the new district chief executive of Agotime Ziope District.
After the pronouncement of the results, there was jubilation all over.
It's like going to war. When you win, you will jubilate but if you lose, you become sad.
Agotime Ziope District is happy to have gotten a new District Chief Executive because they are United after politics.
Honourable Adziamah Emelia said after the declaration that, "I congratulate all of you for the confirmation and I also wish to state that, I will work with all manner of people irrespective of their political, ethnic or religious background. The win is for Agotime Ziope District and not for me alone. Let's work together for the good of the district."
We say, congratulations honourable Adziamah Emelia.
