Mr Joseph Kwasi Asuming, the Chief Executive of the Bosomtwi District Assembly has promised to collaborate with the Ashanti Regional Minister, Simon Osei Mensah and the Member of Parliament for the Bosomtwi Constituency, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum to bring development to the area.

Speaking after receiving 100 per cent approval from the assembly to continue as District Chief Executive (DCE) for the area, Lawyer Asuming as he is known in the area said that his administration will be anchored on unity.

He believes that effective collaboration among political and traditional leaders in the country will draw development to the constituency.

Lawyer Asuming said that developing the road networks in the district will be a focus of his second term as DCE.

He expressed gratitude to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for the confidence imposed and promised to deliver.

He said: “I feel excited to be retained but it's also another challenge for me to work hard and bring development to the district. Everything borders on teamwork so I’m going to work with my MP and the regional minister, assembly members and all relevant stakeholders to bring development to the district.

“One of the biggest challenges here which we have received assurances that it will be fixed is the road. Myself, the MP and regional minister and working on fixing the road so it’s one of the things I will be focusing on. We will improve the road network and also create employment opportunities here,” he said.

Lawyer Asuming was first elected as an Assembly Member for the Worakose Electoral Area in the Bosomtwe District in 1998 and served for twenty years and became the Presiding Member (PM) for the Bosomtwe District Assembly for 16 years between 2001-2017 thus making him the longest-serving PM in Ghana.
