The Eastern Regional First Vice Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Alhaji Umar Bodinga has promised to bring development to the Abuakwa North Municipality if he is appointed the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of the area.

Alhaji Umar Bodinga has touted that with his competencies and relations, he can “showcase Abuakwa North for the whole world to see its wonderful works”.

He made this known in an interview with Happy FM’s Don Prah on the ‘Epa Hoa Daben’ show when he said: “I am prepared for this position. I want to reform Abuakwa North Municipal. For example, there are a lot of avenues at Cocoa Research Institute of Ghana (CRIG) situated at Akyem Tafo in the Abuakwa North Municipality.

"In 2017, I and my MP, Hon. Gifty Twum Ampofo went on a visit to the Cocoa Research Institute and they showed us the products they have produced and tested that when we get the investment, we can get either 4 or 5 factories under the one district one factory in Abuakwa North”.

The First Vice Chairman prayed that President Nana Akufo-Addo “blesses and endorses” him as the MCE of the Abuakwa North so that his vision for the area will be realized.
