Very Reverend Eldad Bonney, Presiding Member of the Assembly, commended the members for endorsing the MCE.

The Member of Parliament for the area, Mr Alexander Afenyo Markin, said now that the MCE has been confirmed, members should put aside their personal and political sentiment in the interest of Effutu state.

He said it is only unity and hard work that would facilitate the development of the area.
