They were neither inducted into Jasikan Municipal Assembly, nor Hohoe Municipal Assembly. They were left hanging like bats not knowing their fate.

‘It’s our conceded hope that the inauguration would pave way for the induction of the elected Assembly members to enable the Assembly take-off’

‘After the inauguration, the Assembly will be duly constituted and a Presiding Member elected’.
