Re-elected Presiding Member (PM) of Wenchi Municipal Assembly in the Brong Ahafo Region, Mr Samuel Mensah, has given the firmest of assurances that he will ensure the municipality works as a team to ensure its growth and development.
Outlining his vision following his re-lection on Tuesday, May 15, 2018, Mr Mensah, who doubles as the Manager in-charge of the Wenchi branch of GN Bank, commended members for the confidence they reposed in him.
“I want to express my heartfelt appreciation to you all for this privilege to serve”, he said, and pledged to continue to offer selfless leadership towards the development of the municipality.
He also assured the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of the Assembly of his continuous support and cooperation to move Wenchi forward.
In the estimation of Mr Mensah, success could not be achieved if structures on the ground were not strengthened, stressing that his outfit will ensure value for money and help improve upon internal controls within the assembly to protect its purse.
He noted that his outfit would equip the assembly members with ideas that would help them execute their duties effectively.
“There is an over dependence on the assembly’s resources by assembly members, so I will teach them how to write proposals to seek financial support to help them pursue their projects,” he said.
He said he will also ensure that the assembly members are able to mobilise funds within their communities so that they could also aid the assembly’s coffers.
Against this background, Mr Mensah used the opportunity to advise the assembly members to promote unity and cooperation among themselves and the unit committees, adding that they should put aside their political differences if they want the progress of the municipal assembly.
