Mr. Emmanuel Kwasi Bedzra, Member of Parliament (MP) for Ho-West on Tuesday urged the staff of Ho West District Assembly to take a cue from the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) hearings and work with integrity.

“You must work with dedication and total commitment and take the stunning revelations at the Public Accounts Committee hearing as your guide not to fall foul of the law,” he advised.

Mr. Bedzra gave the advice at a special meeting of the new Assembly, which was carved from the Ho Municipal Assembly.

He underscored the need for all stakeholders to be purposeful for the area’s rapid socio-economic development.

“Many districts and communities have left us behind so we have to remain united and work hard to catch up with them and improve on our livelihood,” Mr. Bedzra said.

He appealed to Mr. Ibrahim Alhassan, Ho West District Coordinating Director and the Assembly-members, to use their rich experiences to make the District unique.

In a speech read on his behalf, Osie Adza Tekpor VII, Chairman of Paramount Chiefs and Queen-mothers of Ho-West Constituency, pledged the readiness of the traditional authorities to co-operate with the Assembly.

The special meeting saw the formation of the Assembly’s Executive Committee and the adoption of some sub-committees.
