Musah Kusubari Karim, the president’s nominee for the position of West Gonja municipal assembly in the Savannah region of Ghana says his nomination to the highest office in the assembly is a victory for all and not just for NPP members.
Kusubari promised to operate an open administration and ready to work with all manner of people no matter their political, religious or tribal affiliations.
The NPP Secretary for Damongo Constituency said this on Monday, September 20, 2021, in his first interview on peace and Development Radio (Radio PAD 95.1) Kareyanch3 Super Morning with host, Abdulai Nuhu Zulka at Damongo.
Kusubari Musah was on air to express gratitude to the president, chiefs, religious leaders, party leadership and the public for their role in getting him appointed.
“I want to thank President Nana Akuffo-Addo, our traditional leaders, the Damongo MP, Savannah regional minister, party executives and all who contributed to getting me this far. I will work with all to help the growth and development of the area. This load that is put on my head is for the people of the area to carry because we are going to run my office together. There won’t be any discrimination during my reign”.
Kusubari Musah fend off competition from Ayuba Seidu and Abu Jaja to get the nod. He thanked the two gentlemen for the maturity shown since sector minister Dan Botwe made the pronouncement on Sunday, September 19, 2021, Accra.
The Savannah regional minister, Muhazu Saeed Jibril, who spoke on phone, advised the appointed MMDCEs to use the power given them for the benefit of the people of the region and not personal glory. He said the final three (3) shortlisted from West Gonja municipality were all find gentlemen but the president has the final say in who becomes the next MCE for the assembly.
“Power can trick a human being, it can make you feel bigger than or equal God, but remember it is not forever. Be humble, don’t forget where you are coming from, you were just like the people on the street as ordinary as they are and one day you will surely be back to them. It can easily corrupt you, treat them well and bring yourselves down to the people”.
He disclosed that a meeting will quickly be arranged with the seven (7) municipal and district assemblies in the region to fast track the confirmation of the MMDCEs.
A nominee needs two-third (2/3) majority votes of the total assembly members to be confirmed as the MCE or DCE.
