2016 NPP Parliamentary Candidate for Ellembelle Kwasi Bonzo has been confirmed as the DCE nominee for Ellembelle. Mr. Bonzo had 42 yes and 10 no votes out of 52 after voting representing 80.7 percent.
Although there were few misunderstanding between some Assembly members about the presence of “Macho men” at Nkroful Agriculture Senior High School’s Assembly hall, the Western Regional Minister and the security agencies present were able to calm nerves.
The DCE in his acceptance speech promised to work with all notwithstanding their political affiliations to ensure rapid development in the district.
Acting Western Regional Chairman Francis Ndede Siah in an interview with Skyy news predicted victory for Mr. Bonzo K. This, according to him is because the assembly members assured the President’s new choice will not face any resistance. He admitted a problem between the last nominee Steve Donkor and the new one Kwasi Bonzo has been solved amicably. In the meantime, failed DCE nominee for Ellembelle Steve Donkor has congratulated Kwasi Bonzo. According to him his confirmation was to be expected as the assembly members were rooting for him. He says he is willing to help Mr. Bonzo carry out his duties in any capacity necessary.
