The Ada East District Assembly has retained Mr Godwin Agudey as the Presiding Member to serve his second term after the second round of voting.
Mr Agudey, who was the sole contender for the position, in accordance with the laws must go through affirmation vote "Yes" and "No" to secure a two-thirds majority of the members present and voting.
