The Keta Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Mr Emmanuel Gemegah, has promised to create cordial relationship with senior citizens in the municipality and implement pragmatic programmes that will help bring growth and development to the people.
According to him, senior citizens were an embodiment of knowledge and wisdom that the assembly should continue to tap.
The MCE made these remarks on Friday when he feted the aged to food and music at his residence in Keta as part of the Constitution Day holiday.
He said in working towards the achievements of the municipality, the interest of senior citizens should be given the needed attention.
“They are not finished yet because they are old; they wield a lot of experience and wisdom to share,” he stressed.
Mr Gemegah noted that the interaction has nothing to do with party functionaries but rather to get advice from all towards the development of the area.
He added that with the role of the aged in the areas of education, health and social services, he believed their prayers and ideas were much needed in times like the holiday.
He assured them that he would operate an open door policy and his office is available to everybody who wish to support the development of the municipality.
“What is needed is to come together as one people and work towards solving the numerous challenges in the areas of employment, roads, health and sanitation that face the people.”
He assured that new roads and rehabilitation work on all roads that were stalled would soon be revived.
He planned to make such an interaction an annual event to take stock of the present and make projections towards the ensuing year to make Keta a better place for all.
Some of the participants who spoke lauded the leadership style of the MCE and pledged their support for him to succeed, with others advising him to be father for all devoid of partisan politics.
