Assembly Members at the Bunkpurugu/Yunyoo District of the Northern Region, on Wednesday endorsed overwhelmingly Mr Sampoa Timothy Laari as the District Chief Executive (DCE) for the area.

Mr Laari polled 41 votes out of the 45 Member-Assembly, representing 91.1 per cent of the votes cast, in the election which was supervised by officials of the Electoral Commission (EC).

Mr Laari expressed gratitude to President John Dramani Mahama for the appointment, and thanked the assembly members for their sense of purpose and his overwhelming endorsement.

He pledged to work harder to justify the confidence reposed in him, and appealed to all to discard negative attitudes that would divide the people, saying, “We need unity, peace and togetherness to steer affairs of the district”.

He pledged to run an open administration, to ensure that people with great ideas were brought on board, to facilitate the development of the area.
