Bawku(UER),Dec.21, GNA - Mr. Fuseini Alhassan, Deputy Bawku Municipal Coordinating Director, has called on area council chairmen to be selfless and dedicated in the discharge of their service to accelerate the growth and progress of their communities. He said their positions should not be seen as an advantage to lord it over the people but an avenue to exhibit exemplary lifestyles to lead the crusade against poverty.
Mr. Alhassan, who gave the advice at the election of Chairmen for eight area councils within the Bawku Municipality, said their roles were to seek the people's views to move the community forward.
They were Mr Adam Zibrim, Bawku Zonal Council, Mr S.K. Salifu, Mognori, Mr Haruna Sumaila, Pusiga, and Mr Wahabu Mahamadu, Kulungungu. The rest were Mr Ibrahim Alale, Widana, Mr Lawrence Anani, Bazua, Mr Stephen Mbawini, Zawse and Mr Joseph Akparibo, Binduri.
Mr. Alhassan cautioned them against the tendency to take issues on partisan lines that would retard the development of the communities. The Chairmen returned unopposed, pledged to serve the interest of their communities.
