THOMAS AWUAH Asem has been elected as the new Civil and Local Government Staff Association of Ghana (CLOGSAG) Secretary for Ahafo Ano South-East District Assembly (AASEDA) in the Ashanti Region.
Widely known for his hard work and humble nature, Awuah Asem polled a staggering 41 votes as against nine votes secured by Stephen Laar, to occupy the enviable position during Friday’s polls, held at Adugyama.
Significantly, the constitution of CLOGSAG mandates the Secretary (Awuah Asem) to occupy his position until transferred or retired.
However, the other executives will serve for a four-year term.
In the chairmanship contest, Charles Akwasi Aboagye obtained 39 votes to beat his only contender, Solomon Kenny Agyekum, who had 11 votes.
Elna Marful, who had no contest, was also confirmed as the organiser in an election which was supervised by the Ashanti Regional CLOGSAG officials, led by Daniel Brobbey, the Regional Secretary.
Mr. Kaleem Abdallah Adam, the District Coordinating Director for AASEDA, in his succinct remarks, tasked the newly-elected executives to work hard to improve the image of CLOGSAG in the district.
“You need to work hard to make us proud. The Association is bedeviled with challenges that need people like your kind to find solutions to them”, he stated.
After the swearing-in ceremony, the elected organizer and chairman, took turns to thank the staff for reposing their trust in them, and promised to live up to expectations.
