The Municipal Chief Executive of Nkwanta South (MCE), Hon. Felix Owusu-Gyimah, who doubles as the chairman of the Municipal Security Council, accompanied by members of the council, representatives from the Information Service Department, and the National Youth Authority went to Shiare, a suburb of Nkwanta, to officially introduce himself to the traditional councils, chiefs, and opinion leaders in the municipality as the new representative of the President of the Republic – His Excellency, Nana Addo Dankwa Adufo-Addo.

The visits was an important step in establishing strong relationship and open communication between the office of the MCE and the local community leaders.
In his address to the people, Hon. Felix Owusu-Gyimah emphasized how the recent disturbances have negatively impacted all aspects of life in the area and the need to work together to foster a harmonious and inclusive environment for all residents.

According to the MCE, by engaging directly with the traditional authorities and opinion leaders, I was able to strengthen the partnership between the government and the local community. “This will be essential in ensuring the successful implementation of development projects and the maintenance of peace and stability in the municipality.
I am confident that these initial meetings have laid a strong foundation for continued collaboration and progress in the region”, Hon. Gyimah added.

The Municipal Planning Officer, Mr. Ibrahim Abass, used the meeting to highlight some of the projects being undertaken by the Municipal Assembly. Particular emphasis was placed on the World Bank-funded Gulf of Guinea Northern Regions Social Cohesion (SOCO) project, of which the Nkwanta South Municipal Assembly is one of the four beneficiary assemblies in the Oti Region. The initiative aims to promote social cohesion and improve the living conditions of beneficiary districts and municipalities.
