The President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has finalised the list of metropolitan, municipal and district chief executives (MMDCEs) to be nominated to serve in the next three-and-a-half years.
According to the Director of Communications at the Presidency, Eugene Arhin in a facebook post, the finalized list is expected to be received today by the Minister for Local Government, Decentralisation and Rural Development, Hon Daniel Botwe for onward announcement.
Reacting to this on Breakfast Daily, the National Communications Team Member of the NDC, Osman Ayariga has described the delay in the appointment of the MMDCES as unpardonable and bridge to development.
He added that the absence of the MMDCES for nine months has made things standstill at the local level and has hampered progress in the local level.
“If you want to keep or change a DCE, it shouldn't take us nine months. I mean that is unpardonable because development has stopped at the local level, things are not moving at the local level. I don't know how they would want to justify it by saying they need to do evaluation," he explained.
Mr Osman Ayariga argued that, the delay can not be justified because this is a government which is running its second term and should have known the competence level of its members for early appointments.
He insisted that the unnecessary waste of time or the lackadaisical manner in which the government is moving its second term in terms of appointment of boards and MMDCES will make most policies of the NPP fail.
