He urged the assembly members not to use the floor of the assemblies to further their own political agenda.

Mr Aidoo called for collaboration between assemblies and traditional authorities in planning and executing development projects. At Essam, the capital for Bia, Madam Horner-Sam appealed to members of the assembly to work hard to provide facilities to enhance its operation.
