The new PM said his focus would be to ensure cleaner cities, proper city park and strategies to improve revenue generation.

He also charged the assembly technocrats to endeavour to implement the decisions of the members of the assembly to the latter.

“Today we are part of history making. Let us work hard to uplift the socio-economic lives of our people,” he added.

In a related development, the Chairman for the Sekondi Takoradi Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Mr Ato Van-Ess has been appointed as a government member to the STMA.

Mr Van-Ess brings on board rich industry experience, which the Assembly could harness in their quest to development.

He was grateful to government for their appointment and pledged to work hard as well as keep to the oath of their appointment.
