Member of Parliament for Navrongo Central, Tangombu Sampson Chiragia has revealed that the Kassena Nankana Municipal Assembly is not functioning, because the District Chief Executive (DCE) is currently only a caretaker.

According to him the DCE does not know if he would be re-appointed, or not and as a lawmaker going to him, he cannot take any better decision on the ground, neither can the coordinating director take any decision whiles the DCE is there for now.

The MP who was responding to questions in an interview, when wanted to know his level of involvement with the Assembly as a first term MP thus called on the President to fast truck his decision of appointing MMDCEs for the various assemblies.

“I hope the President would make his appointment soon, as the caretakers DCEs are not prepared to do anything because they do not know their faith, because their own colleagues who they do not expect to contest them are now contesting them”.

He further noted that, as a first time MP, he does not have a Common Fund and does not know when it would come. “When you go to DCEs, they say they cannot do anything, they are caretakers. The Assembly does not exist”, he said.
