The President of the Republic of Ghana, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo – Addo on Monday 13th November, 2017 paid a working visit to the people of La, Teshie and Nungua (LATENU) at the park in front of the La Court in the La Dadekotopon Municipality.
The Hon. Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, the Hon. Greater Accra Regional Minister, Members of Parliament for Ledzokuku and La, the Municipal Chief Executives of Ledzokuku-Krowor and La Dadekotopon, Members of the La, Teshie and Nungua Traditional Councils, Hon. Assembly Members of LEKMA and LADMA, Heads of Departments of LEKMA and LADMA, representatives from Persons with Disability, youth groups etc. were all present at the durbar.
Heads of the three traditional councils were given the opportunity to say few words to the President. The La Traditional Council requested that government gives them compensation for the military land taken from the Council. The Nungua Traditional Council asked that LEKMA be divided into two separate Assemblies for smooth administration since the current jurisdiction of the Assembly was too vast. They asked the President not to relent on his effort to fight corruption as promised.
The Greater Accra Regional Minister and the Member of Parliament for Ledzokuku all reiterated government’s commitment of honouring all promises in the manifesto of the New Patriotic Party.
Addressing the durbar, His Excellency the President said his administration’s plans and policies are made for the people therefore all must support the administration to succeed. According to him, his policies and programmes which have been implemented such as the free SHS are here to stay and not just a political rhetoric as his opponents thought.
Again, he promised to pay compensation for the portions of the La land which the Military is currently occupying. He also said the suggestion to get separate Assemblies each for Teshie and Nungua would be considered since they have two different constituencies.
He tasked the two MMDCEs to ensure that they support the vision of making Accra the cleanest city in Africa by forming Sanitation brigades to help rid the city of filth.
The three traditional councils presented the President with beautifully framed portraits of himself.
The MCEs and LEKMA and LADMA jointly gave the vote of thanks to bring the durbar to an end.
