Political Positions Are To Serve, Not To Be Bossy — MCE Advises

Mr Divine Bosson, Ho Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), has stated that, political positions are meant to serve the people.  “A political position is not a Bigman position, but rather a servant position,” he said.

Mr Bosson, said this in an address he delivered at a fundraising durbar organised by the chiefs and people of Hodzo Aviefe in the Ho Municipality.

He advised those who were holding political positions, to lead in humility and not be bossy.

Mr Bosson, stated that before the advent of democracy, chiefs were enormously powerful, but “politicians took away their power and reduced some of them to beggars just to have influence over them”.

He advised politicians to accord chiefs the needed respect, dignity and encouragement, adding, “the chieftaincy institution is a dignified one.”

He noted that, the HMA had drawn a blueprint which would serve as a guide for the developmental needs of all communities in the Municipality.

The MCE, urged the people to exercise patience, as the government was working to spread the national cake, equitably.

He told the gathering that, a campus of the University of Health and Allied Sciences, would soon be opened in the community and advised against making politics out of it.

Mr Bosson, said he was looking for investors to help turn Hodzo into a food basket of the country.

He said, the Assembly had acquired 36,000 coconut seedlings for distribution to farmers in the Municipality and urged farmers in the area to take advantage of it.

He advised chiefs and opinion leaders in the Hodzo traditional area, to bury their differences and unite for the development of the area.

“Don’t let our individual differences and politics divide us,” he advised.

Mr Bosson, promised that the Assembly would help them put up the proposed community Centre.

Togbe Agbolosu VII, Chief of the community in a welcome address, called on his subjects to join hands to develop the town.   He urged the youth to shun all lifestyles that were alien to them as Ghanaians.

Togbe Dzegblade IV, Chief of Adaklu Kodzobi, who was a special guest, lauded the efforts of the people not to wait for government to do it all for them.

He hoped the bond of friendship between the two communities, would grow from strength to strength.

Mr Dickson Agbenya, a Budget Analyst of the Ho Municipal Assembly, and a citizen of the town, told the Ghana News Agency that, funds raised at the durbar, would be used to build an ultra-modern community Centre.

Mr Ernest Agbenya, a Magistrate who chaired the function, appealed to the people to forge a united front for the development of the community.

Mr Boson, presented a Polytank valued at GH¢10,000, 12 Street lights and GH¢1,000 to the community.
