Speaking to 3news.com’s Kwame Kakarba after his confirmation, Mr Appianin said “once the selection process is over and having been duly elected, I wish to call on all and sundry to be united behind me as we build a new Upper Denkyira West and pledge my commitment to work with you to bring the district to a deserving state”.
