Head of Psychology at the University of Ghana, Professor Joseph Osafo has cautioned the MMDCE nominees against serving their own or partisan interest when finally appointed to their various offices.
The list of the MMDCEs is out and among 260 nominees are 222 males and 38 females.
The Minister of Local Government, Decentralisation and Rural Development, Dan Botwe, speaking after the announcement of the MMDCE list, advised them saying “the whole idea is service to the nation. So far, as I am concerned and all well-meaning Ghanaians know, you are aspiring to serve our motherland. If the opportunity has not been given to you to serve, there cannot be any reason for disturbances.
“If truly you wanted to serve, then there is absolutely no basis for you to involve in disorderly conduct,” he added.
Also sending a word to those who have made it to the MMDCEs' list, Prof. Joseph Osafo advised them to serve the nation.
Speaking to host Nana Yaw Kesseh on Peace FM's ''Kokrokoo'', he asked; ''When someone is appointed, are we serving a political party or we're serving the nation?...Do we still have that feeling of citizenship or loyalty to a nation?...Who are we serving? Are we serving our personal interest?
He told the MMDCEs to engage in a self-introspection ensuring they execute their duties effectively.
