Hon. Patrick Kwesi Brako Kumor is the honourable Municipal Chief executive for Weija-Gbawe Municipal Assembly with its capital being Weija.
He is a fulfilled philanthropist with several miles of experience in public-spirited work enriched with increasing responsibility in human rights advocacy and leadership. His Marxist philosophy has earned him prominence in the political terrain.
He brings to the governance table a proven success in the onshore oil business. He has taken on many leadership roles served on and chaired a variety of committees, holding other portfolios both in private and public life. As a graduate, trained as a professional accountant, he is poised to rope in his long-standing business, management, and leadership mannerism to help tool the Assembly’s team of competent staff to deliver on the Assembly’s core mandate.
To him, the success of the Weija-Gbawe Municipal Assembly does not depend on excellent speeches but togetherness among the staff and their sense of ownership of the Assembly’s vision. He believes this is the impetus needed to necessitate street improvements, code enforcement, sanitation enhancements, infrastructural development, improved social services, and job creation.
He has noted with a passion that, to increase the Assembly’s revenue generation capacity in the light of Weija-Gbawe beyond Common Fund, the Municipal populist must see their taxes solving the beset problems of poor road networks, poor street lighting, poor drainage systems, sanitation dilemma, security-related compromises due to resource constraints, inadequate emergency healthcare systems and lack of second cycle institution within the municipality.
Guided by a SMART strategic plan, key on his agenda is to promote a healthy economy in the municipal to birth decent and lasting jobs, so that the youth in the communities’ will not emigrate from Weija-Gbawe in search of greener pastures.
In a world of keen competition for a fast-growing technology, he intends to liaise with the Assembly’s IT department to engage a website that will be interactive for the public to access services and also post and report challenges and eventualities within their immediate environment.
Because the topographical nature of Weija-Gbawe is naturally inimical to agricultural crop production, he is teaming up with the municipal agricultural technocrat to introduce animal farming.
“We need a healthy and economically vibrant Weija-Gbawe with a welcoming atmosphere, a new balanced approach to governance, no secret meetings, no pet projects, and putting our people above personal parochial interest”.
He is happily married to Mrs. Esther Kumor and the duo is blessed with two children.
