The Council of State Member representing the Greater Accra Region, His Excellency Emmanuel Adzei Anang, has expressed profound gratitude to the Ga East Municipal Assembly (GEMA) and the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Hon. John Kwao Sackey, for honouring him.
The Ga East Municipal Assembly about a month ago named its new Office Block Annex after the Council of State Member.
Now known as the “Emmanuel Adzei Anang Block”, the ground floor of the yet to be fully completed 3-storey edifice houses the Works and Town & Country Planning Departments.
To show appreciation for the honour done their father, the Children and Family of H. E. Emmanuel Adzei Anang through a three-member delegation presented a citation, prefaced with a quotation from Psalm 26:7, to the Assembly.
“We the Children and Family of HON. EMMANUEL ADZEI ANANG, wish to express our profound gratitude to the entire Ga East Municipal Assembly and the Hon. Kwao Sackey (MCE) in particular for the realization of the good work done over the years by a humble servant (our father) to your Municipality, the Greater Accra Region and the nation.
In fact, your award came as a surprise to us, since we thought he was just doing his bid as a servant of mankind and to Mother Ghana.
You have really shown by the award, that it is worth serving one’s people and nation.
Your award stands very tall and most significant among all the awards he has received so far.
We pray that the God Lord will continue to bless you Hon. MCE and the Assembly, so you realize all your heart’s desire so to become, if not the Best, among the Best Assemblies in Ghana.”
The Children, Edward Akwetey, Settina Annang and Joseph Annang, who presented the citation said they were motivated to serve the nation and its people diligently noting that “little did we know that our father’s efforts would be recognized someday”.
Receiving the citation on behalf of the Assembly at the MCE’s office, the Presiding Member, Hon. Nii Annang Ofori, thanked the children and the family for the gesture and added that the Assembly was happy about their visit and show of appreciation in return for the honour.
The MCE, Hon. John Kwao Sackey said his outfit was grateful for the replication of the honour they gave to H. E. Emmanuel Adzei through his children and family.
With MCE and PM to receive the citation were the Municipal Coordinating Director, Mr. Martin Dassah, Town & Country Planning Director, Mrs. Doris Kally Adusei, Chief Planning Officer, Mr. Sampson Slessor Agbeve, Municipal Budget Officer, Mr. Noah Tali and the Acting Public Relations Officer (P.R.O), Okunyin Boaz Orlan-Hackman.
