The Afigya Kwabre North District Assembly inaugurated its third assembly, introducing newly elected assembly and unit committee members. This follows the successful District Level Elections in December of last year, which saw the election of new members to serve for the next four years.
The swearing-in ceremony in Afigya Kwabre North welcomed 15 newly elected assembly members, 7 government appointees, and 73 unit committee members.
Distinguished attendees included Member of Parliament for Afigya Kwabre North, Hon. Collins Adomako Mensah, Nana Nkwanta Kessehene, Nana Boakye Yam Ababio (the immediate past presiding member), Hon.

The assembly and unit committee members were sworn in by His Honour Justice Paul Oduro, the Offinso District Court Judge, representing the Chief Justice.
During the ceremony, government representative Hon. Bryn Acheampong, Minister of Agriculture, underscored that all statements conveyed represented the government’s stance, not his personal opinions.
Following this, the immediate past presiding member, Nana Boakye Yam Ababio, presented a wrapped parcel to Minister Bryn, appealing for improvements to Afigya Kwabre North’s roads on behalf of the government.
In response, Minister Bryn expressed gratitude to the assembly, led by the honorable DCE Akwasi Karikari Acheamfour, and assured that he would convey the message faithfully. Additionally, he pledged to utilize his capacity as the Minister of Agriculture to address the appeal to the best of his ability.
