The list of Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) to assist the government at the local level has been released by the Minister of Local Government, Decentralisation and Rural Development, Dan Botwe.
The nominees were assessed by a Committee and a report submitted to the President who in turn made it available to the Minister.
Some notable names on the list include the NPP Ashanti Regional Secretary, Sam Pyne and Elizabeth Sackey appointed as Heads of the Kumasi and Accra Metropolitan Assemblies.
Out of the 260 nominees, 38 are females, 222 are males.
Commenting on the list during Peace FM's 'Kokrokoo' programme, the Director of Communications of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Yaw Buaben Asamoa advised the MMDCEs to adopt the spirit of humility and service to the people of Ghana.
He urged the MMDCEs to foster unity within the Assemblies and avoid the temptation to override people with their positions.
Speaking to host Nana Yaw Kesseh, he said; "You the person that power has been vested in and placed on the seat must be down to earth for us to trample upon. Those who were on the seat already and have been reappointed should remember that if the President has reposed confidence in them and brought them back will be down to earth and open their hearts and opportunities for negotiations with even those who are not satisfied with their job . . ."
