Mr Marlon Anipa, the maiden District Chief Executive for the freshly created Guan District in the Oti Region, has passed on.
He died in Hohoe Tuesday morning as established by sources within the rank and file of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Currently, what accounted for his death is yet to be revealed.
Marlon Anipa was unanimously approved to be the first-ever DCE for the Guan District by all 19 Assembly Members barely two weeks ago, following his nomination by President Akufo-Addo.
He served as a Specialist Consultant and a member of the ruling NPP.
Prior to the 2016 elections, he contested the Hohoe parliamentary seat on the ticket of the party but couldn’t secure victory.
