The New Patriotic Party youth wing in Evalue-Ajomoro Gwira Constituency of the Western Region has commended President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for nominating Dorcas Elizabeth Amoah as the first female Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Nzema East Municipality.

On Sunday, September 19, 2021, the Minister for Local Government, Decentralisation, and Rural Development, Dan Botwe, officially released the list of MMDCEs to be confirmed by the Assembly Members of Ghana within 21 days.

A statement signed by the Evalue-Ajomoro Gwira NPP youth wing stated that this is the first time a female has been nominated as the MCE for Nzema East.

"We the people of NEMA and the NPP Youth in EAG again want to thank H.E Nana Addo "The Showboy - Grassroots Adamfo" by giving us a woman us MCE, which prior to the 1992 constitution mandated for appointing of MMDCEs, we the NEMA people haven't experienced such a good news than on 19th September 2021 which came to us by a surprise and determination of a woman becoming the MCE of NEMA," the statement read.

The statement added that "This is first of its kind and we warmly appreciate and accept in good faith and hard work by the President."

The statement also commended the out-going MCE for the area, Frank Okpenyen for doing his part to develop the Municipality.

"...We the good people of NEMA and the NPP youths in EAG want to show a strong appreciation to our out-going MCE in the person of Hon. Frank Okpenyen for his first term in office," the statement stated.

The NPP youth wing is taking the opportunity to appeal to the Assembly Members in the area to confirm Madam Dorcas Elizabeth Amoah to continue the works the outgoing MCE started to improve the lives of the residents.

The president's nominee, Dorcas Elizabeth Amoah would have to scale approval of a two-thirds majority vote of Assembly Members present and voting through a secret ballot, with the nominee standing a second chance for failure to garner the two-thirds majority or otherwise would be withdrawn.
