According to the NALAG President one district, one factory; planting for food and jobs; free Senior High School and other government flagship programmes can be achieved only when MMDCEs actively participate in the programme.
He made this remarks when he gave a solidarity message at the orientation for new Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) at the Institute of Local Government Studies, in Accra.
Mr. Felix Mensah Nii Anang-La thanked President Nana Akufo-Addo for believing in decentralization leading to the creation of new Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) and the creation of the new regions and elections of MMDCEs.
“MMDCEs as a representative of the government at the local level, should ensure that government programmes are realized, use this orientation to boost the economic development in your district and also boost internal generated funds to bring overall development to the door step of the people”, he said.
He further urged MMDCEs to be agents of change who were going to serve and not to be served.
