Pursuant to Article 242 of the 1992 constitution, I was sworn in as a member of the Krowor Municipal Assembly. My swearing-in took place at the premises of the Krowor Municipal Assembly at the General Assembly meeting of 31st March 2021.
In a brief address after I had taken my oath of office, I reminded the House of urgent matters that require expedient attention, i.e. dilapidated/uncompleted school projects, retooling of the Nungua Polyclinic/completion of Phase II, resolving boundary disputes, adequate lighting of the communities, deplorable road networks etc.
I am grateful to the Magistrate (La), Assembly Members and the leadership of the Assembly for their assistance and cooperation.
I will continue collaborating with the Assembly towards resolving the challenges confronting our dear Krowor.
I remain, your Humble Servant.
