He made the call on behalf of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo during the inauguration of Gomoa East District at Gomoa Potsin, the District Capital.
He said Assemblies were considered to be essential for ensuring balanced and equitable development at the local level, with their main goals of pursuing programmes that would create opportunities for all persons living in the district and safeguarding the natural environment.
The DCE for the area Solomon Darko - Quarm said, the Assemblies had the responsibility of deepening political and administrative decentralisation and urged them to move swiftly in that direction to bring good governance to their doorsteps.
He also urged all stakeholders to be focused and committed by pursuing good development agenda to supplement government's efforts at accelerating development.
'We should endeavour to make the decentralisation agenda work, by minimising agitations on siting of the district capitals, election of presiding members, appointment of government nominees, chief executives and provision of critical facilities in the parts of the communities'. He added.
Mr. Isaac Apeatu, Agona Swedru Court Magistrate later administered the oath of office to the Assembly members of the district.
