Mr. Alfred Asiedu Adjei popularly known as ‘Paa Joe’, a National Association of Local Authorities of Ghana (NALAG) Presidential hopeful, has pledged to pursue an agenda to create additional resource channels to improve the welfare of its members.
He said this would help facilitate local government programmes and projects in the country.
Mr Adjei, who is the three-time Presiding Member (PM) of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) made the pledge when he engaged with Assembly members in the seven Regions namely Oti, Volta, Savannah, Northern, North East, Upper East, and Upper West Regions, during a campaign tour.
The NALAG election, which had been delayed for over a year, is finally expected to come off from June 1 to June 3, 2022.
The NALAG Presidential hopeful said he would restructure and pursue an agenda to make the Association attractive both locally and internationally to safeguard the welfare of members.
Mr. Adjei, a two-term elected assembly man for the Avenor Electoral Area, in his seven points agenda for the progress of NALAG pledged to ensure that the core vision, mission, aims, and objectives of Association were carried out effectively and timeously with the collaboration of all members, as well as serve with competence, humility, and integrity.
The AMA Presiding member, however, added that his vision as NALAG President hopeful was to improve the welfare of members of NALAG, advocate for enhanced remuneration and equal ex-gratia for Assembly Members and facilitate sister-city relationships with cities across the globe.
Mr Alfred Adjei is also expected to wrap up his campaign tour with a visit to Eastern, Central, Western, and Western North regions ahead of the NALAG election.
