Mr Ebenezer Kodwo, Chairman of the Tema District Council of Labour (TDCL) has expressed gratitude to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for appointing Mr Felix Mensah Nii Annang-La as Tema Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE).

He said Mr Anang-La who was a Unionist understands the problems of workers and how to find solutions to them, adding that, “the plight of workers must be handle by persons who has been in the same shoes.”

“On behalf of the TDCL and the entire workforce of Tema, I thanked the President for appointing Mr Anang-La and congratulate him also for his appointment.”

Mr Kodwo made the remarks at the 2018 May Day Celebration Party in Tema on Tuesday.

He said the TDCL had tried, tested and tasted the leadership capabilities and integrity of Mr Anang-La, adding that, the experience gained by him in the management of labour issues would practically be implemented.

Mr Kodwo said the MCE’s ability to deliver was demonstrated clearly prior to and during the 2018 May Day celebration.

He assured the President of the TDCL unflinching support to Mr Anang-La in the execution of his duties as well as ensuring that all government policies and programmes were implemented in the Tema Metropolitan Area.

The Chairman said the MCE initiative, dubbed: “The Tema Restoration Agenda (TRA)” would also be fully supported by TDLC to see the light of day.

The TRA is an initiative instituted by the Tema Metropolitan Assembly (TMA) to restore the industrial city back to its initial status in the areas of infrastructure, sanitation, education, Health and socio-economic activities.

The MCE urged the labour unions to put in their best to support government policies and programmes for President Akufo-Addo to succeed.

He also appealed to the people of Tema to support the TMA’s development agenda for the metropolis.
