The Minister for Local Government and Rural Development, Hajia Halima Mahama says the Nana Addo led administration is committed to ensuring that all arrangements are done to ensure the elections of MMDCE’s come to pass.
According to her, despite the failure of the government to implement their manifesto promise of ensuring the election of the MMDCE’s, the party is still focused and working hard to see the election done to make the decentralization process successful.
The Minister was speaking at the meet the press Series of the Information Ministry which was held in Accra on Wednesday.
Hajia Halima added that the party understands that, there must be building of concensus to allow the election of MMDCE’s on partisan basis to hand over more power to the locals.
Hajia Halima also hit back at the former president for his suggestion of paying assembly members as she says the laws that govern the local government system does not allow that. She stressed that, what better thing is Mr Mahama bringing on board after failing to fulfill his 2012 promise of increasing allowances to assembly members.
