Whiles commending President Akufo-Addo for the nomination, he urged the Assembly members to approve in unanimity, Dorcas Amoah, since that will allow her occupy office in earnest and put in motion, her plans for the area.

“I first of all want to congratulate our very own Dorcas Amoah for the nomination. She is a daughter of this land and she has been of immense support to people in this area.
