 Mr QuarmThe Gomoa East District Assembly has elected Solomon Darko Quarm as the District Chief Executive (DCE) for the area.

He was unanimously voted by the 16-member assembly, which gave him 100 per cent approval after being nominated by President Nana Akufo-Addo.

Kwamena Duncan, the Central Regional Minister, urged the newly elected DCE to serve the people and not to lord himself over them.

He called on Mr Quarm to serve as agent of development to transform the living standards of the people by ensuring that bad roads and dilapidated school structures are repaired while constructing health facilities.

Mr Duncan commended Seth Boadi, the District Coordinating Director of the Assembly for his maturity, competency and sense of direction, which had brought about good governance in the area.

Benjamin Andoh, the Presiding Member, said the election of Mr Quarm would help accelerate the development of the newly created district.

Obrempong Yamfo Krampah, the Omanhene of Gomoa Ajumako Traditional Area and the President of the Central Regional House of Chiefs expressed gratitude to the members of the assembly for the approval of the President’s nominee.

He said Gomoa East, Central and West Districts needed massive socio-economic development such as good roads, healthcare facilities, quality education, jobs and wealth creation to improve the living conditions of the people.

Obrempong Krampah urged the new DCE to be cautious of people who would push him to take actions that would not ensure the growth and peace in the district.

Obirifo Ahornako Ahor Ankobea II, the Omanhene of Gomoa Assin Traditional Area, said the election of the DCE would assist the Gomoa East District to get its fair share of the national cake.

Mr Quarm thanked the Assembly members for their overwhelming endorsement of his appointment, the confidence reposed in him and the opportunity to get acquainted with the challenges in the district.

He assured stakeholders of the area he would serve them by helping to build a strong think-tank to move the district forward through wealth creation for the growth of small-scale businesses to reduce poverty. -GNA
