In the polls conducted to elect executives for NALAG, Bismark Baise Nkum, the MCE of Gomoa West beat the incumbent, Mr Felix Mensah Nii Annang-La, to become president while Williams Adum retained his seat as 1st Vice Chairman.
The President of NALAG, who is also a Board Member of Commonwealth Local Government Forum (CLGF), said working with these international institutions has encouraged him to work hard to take the Association from where it is now, to higher heights.
He said when given the opportunity to serve the second time, it would enable him to build a solid and resilient NALAG, responding efficiently to its core mandate, adding that vigorous training and capacity building of members to equip them with the requisite skills to discharge their duties and be relevant even after their term of office as honourable members through certificate courses at relevant institutions would be carried out.
Mensah Nii Annan-LA observed that the core mandate of NALAG was the promotion and development of good local government administration and decentralisation to give meaning to quality local government administration through advocacy, research, public education, partnership with local, national and international actors, with similar aspirations, while protecting the interest of its members.
He said at their last National PMs' Assembly, they were told that NALAG, too, had engaged Jospong Group of Companies to procure the motorbikes to the beneficiaries.
To him, the Ministry and NALAG are dilly-dallying the promise, and after a broader consultation, his Assembly members had given the two up to the end of this November to fulfill their promise, or ASHMA members would boycott assembly activities, with the Farmers' Day being the first.
Deductions for the payment of the bikes would be done through the District Assembly Common Fund (DACF), and to the assembly members, the sector Ministry and NALAG ought to allow the assemblies to source the loan directly from the DACF, since NALAG would pay for the bikes from the same Fund.
Describing the issue as thorny, Mr Okyere told the media that he was hopeful that Jospong Group of Companies and NALAG would be able to meet the ultimatum by the ASHMA members, in order that the assembly members stayed the threat.
And according to COPAM, if the National Executive Council of NALAG ignores the call by the communique issued by Deans of National Conference of Presiding Members, Ghana to organise a National Delegates' Conference to elect new national officers, it would resort to the court to compel the leadership to call for elections.
Contained in a media release signed by Dr Richard Fiadomor, COMPAM Convener, and copied to The Chronicle, it expressed how scandalised the group was by the deliberate abuse of office by the NALAG President, whose term of office has since expired.
With the General Secretary allowing the NALAG Constitution to be breached in such an obvious manner, COPAM, the statement described, said was is unacceptable, adding that the unconstitutional behaviour has virtually thrown the NALAG election timetable completely out of gear.
'We are particularly appalled by the incompetent handling of the Association by the General Secretary, who has sat down and virtually contributed to the blatant side stepping of the NALAG Constitution.
