The youth disclosed the DCE did not get things easier in his first term of office as according to them, the DCE used his time and his own resources at Court, when Ibrahim Mahama the brother of former President John Dramani Mahama took Nyinahin bauxite to supreme court. But Gods grace and through Hon. Williams Darko (DCE) Hon. Simon Osei Mensah (Regional Minister) and Member of Parliament Isaac Kwame Asiamah, won the case now the bauxite creating more jobs for the youth in Atwima Mponua.

Aside from that, he also lobbied for several CHIP compounds which gave been built to help the people to get access to quality healthcare, for example people from Atwima Nwabiagya South to seek for health care at Anweafutu Health centre.
Through him and his workaholic MP, though Atwima Mponua was not part of 88 district hospital but now it’s included.
Hon. Williams Darko outfit helped the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in winning the Parliamentary seat.
The Atwima Mponua NPP Constituency Executives, including Chairman, Mr. Isaac Kofi Marfo has expressed satisfaction with the performance of the DCE in the past four years.
The majority of the Past Constituency Executives and current Executives are backing him to be reappointment.
According to the youth group, Williams Darko never undermine the work of the NPP and his Member of Parliament, Hon. Isaac Bohyeba Asiamah, and they will campaign assiduously for Isaac Asiamah, if the President maintains Williams Darko as the DCE.
The major problems of Atwima Mponua district is deplorable roads, now through Hon. Isaac Asiamah (MP) and Hon. Williams Darko (DCE) the construction of 116 KM roads is ongoing in the district. Mpasatia to Berdabour is completed, Mpasatia town roads 98%, Nyinahin Town roads 98%, Tano-Dumase to Anansu, Nyinahin Kyereaso Nkwanta to Sreso Timpom, Amangoase to Achiase, Fowaa Nkwanta to Bayerebon, Kwanfifini to Kotokuom and other communities will start very soon.
Under his watch as the DCE, the Assembly has also been able to provide seedlings to the majority of the farmers in the area.
The majority of Assembly members in the district also justified their call on the President to retain the DCE for his good human relations and good government achievements.
In the area of good governance, the credibility and competency of Williams Darko is very high. He has good interpersonal relationships with Chief and elders in the district and as head of DISEC, he has properly managed security issues in the district, including chieftaincy. Some of Assembly members hints that, his relationship between them irrespective of Political persuasions, not to talk about his humility.
Meanwhile, some group they campaigned against Hon. Isaac Kwame Asiamah and NPP in 2020 Election, do not want Williams Darko to be retained. All that they are saying are not true, the DCE has performed creditably.
