Accra, Ghana – February 16, 2024

The National Association of Local Authorities of Ghana (NALAG) extends its warmest congratulations to Hon.

This esteemed nomination demonstrates the trust and confidence placed in Hon.

Martin Adjei-Mensah Korsah’s leadership, vision, and dedication to public service will contribute immensely to the realization of our collective goals of empowering local communities and improving the lives of Ghanaians.

Furthermore, as Hon.

Under Hon. Dan Botwe’s leadership, significant strides have been made in enhancing the capacities of local authorities, promoting participatory decision-making processes, and strengthening the institutional framework for decentralization.

NALAG extends its best wishes to Hon. Dan Botwe in all his future endeavors and expresses sincere appreciation for his exemplary service to our nation.

Congratulations to the Newly Inaugurated District Assembly and Unit Committee Members

NALAG further extends heartfelt congratulations to the newly inaugurated District Assembly and Unit Committee Members across the nation, which took place on February 12, 2024. As these dedicated individuals take on the responsibility of representing their communities, we commend their commitment to serving the people of Ghana.

The inauguration of District Assembly and Unit Committee Members marks a significant moment in our democratic process, as it reflects the will of the people and underscores the importance of local governance in driving development at the grassroots level. NALAG recognizes the invaluable contributions that these members will make towards advancing the socio-economic well-being of their respective districts.

Election of Presiding Members

Moreover, we emphasize the crucial role of Presiding Members in facilitating the effective functioning of district assemblies. Therefore, NALAG urges those districts that have not yet elected their Presiding Members to prioritize this process and ensure its completion without delay. A fully constituted assembly is essential for promoting transparency, accountability, and participatory decision-making in local governance.

In line with our commitment to supporting and strengthening local governance structures, NALAG stands ready to provide assistance and guidance to newly elected members and aspiring Presiding Members. We encourage all stakeholders to work collaboratively towards the common goal of promoting sustainable development and improving the lives of our fellow citizens.

Congratulations once again to Hon. Martin Adjei-Mensah Korsah and the newly inaugurated District Assembly Members. Let us collectively strive toward a sustainable local government for our beloved nation.

SIGNED

HON. ERIC NANA-AGYEMANG PREMPEH
