Mr Kwaku Asomah-Cheremeh, the newly-appointed Brong-Ahafo Regional Minister has given the assurance that he would run an all-inclusive administration to promote the socio-economic development of the region.
“I shall operate an open-door policy, where everyone no matter your ethnicity, religion, colour or political affiliation will be welcomed to my office”, he stressed.
Mr Asomah-Cheremeh gave the assurance when he addressed a gathering at a welcoming ceremony organised by the Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) to officially welcome him into office on Friday in Sunyani.
It was attended by the heads of the security services, the regional executives, members and sympathisers of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), traditional rulers, religious leaders, civil servants, and the media among others.
Mr Asomah-Cheremeh entreated the people to recognise the richness and diversity of their talents and resources, which could be harnessed for wealth creation to improve the general well-being of the region.
He appealed to the people to pool their human and material resources together “to build a just, fair and prosperous society to ensure equitable distribution of our region’s wealth for the benefit of our people”.
Earlier in the day he was met on arrival to the region at the Bechem junction by a convoy of the security services commanders, the regional executives and functionaries of the NPP and the media.
Mr. Asomah-Cheremeh paid separate courtesy calls on Nana Fosu Gyeabuor Akoto II, paramount chief of Bechem in the Tano South District, Nana Boakye Tromo III, paramount chief of Duayaw-Nkwanta in the Tano North District and Nana Bosoma Asor Nkrawri II, paramount chief of Sunyani.
He promised to be counting on their respective traditional councils for ideas and suggestions to ensure effective administration for the actualisation of the government’s developmental agenda for the region.
The traditional rulers pledged to mobilise their people to support him and the RCC to make President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s plans for the region a reality.-GNA
