President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has nominated Mr. Godwin Edudzi Effah as the new Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for the Keta Municipal Assembly.
Mr. Effah, an accountant with the Ghana Education Service (GES) was nominated alongside five others to head the six newly created municipal and district assemblies in the country, which include the Anloga District Assembly.
The nomination, which was in accordance with Article 243(1) of the 1992 Constitution and Section 20(1) of the Local Government Act, Act 936, was contained in a statement issued by the Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, Hajia Alima Mahama, on Wednesday, March 13.
When confirmed, Mr. Effah will replace the current MCE, Mr. Seth Yormewu, who has been moved to the newly inaugurated Anloga District Assembly as its first District Chief Executive.
The Anloga assembly was carved out of the Keta municipality after several requests from stakeholders including the Awoamefia of Anlo, Torgbui Sri III who argued that, the municipality has become too large for effective administration, as it was the only assembly with two large constituencies; (i.e. Keta and Anlo) in the region.
On Tuesday, February 19, 2019, the Volta Regional Minister, Dr. Archibald Letsa inaugurated the Anloga District Assembly on behalf of the president under Legislative Instrument (LI) 2372 of 2018.
