Chief Akwannuasah Gyimah, Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Asokwa says the practice of democracy has served Ghana ūüá¨ūüá≠¬† very well in its pursuit for economic independence and development.

Addressing the 67th independence day anniversary parade mounted by cadet groups and thirteen (13) basic and second cycle schools in the Asokwa Municipality on Wednesday, the 6th of March, Chief Akwannuasah said despite the challenges the country faced, the uninterrupted path of democracy has ensured the country charts its own path to development for its people.

The MCE noted every facet of life as well as sectors of the economy including state institutions have seen development in one form or another since Ghana ūüá¨ūüá≠¬† gained independence from British Colonial rule.

“We may not have solved all our challenges confronting us as a people but having our freedoms to carry out our development plan is something that should make us proud as a people”, Chief Akwannuasah stated.

Caution From Atonsu Chief:
Nana Yaw Adarkwa Gu-Ayebiafo II, Chief of Atonsu who chaired the occasion commended the Member of Parliament for Asokwa and Deputy Majority Leader of Parliament, Hon Patricia Appiagyei for lobbying for the elevation of Asokwa to Municipal status.

The Chief also praised the Municipal Assembly staff including the Assembly Members for working to ensure development projects were undertaken at the communities under the Municipality.

“I want to urge the youth of this Municipality that as government and leaders of our area do their part in securing jobs for the people and developing our communities they also live lives that would bring peace to Asokwa at all times. Again as elections draw close may we all be careful of our attitudes so that we can continue to enjoy the peace we have”, the Chief admonished.
