Some aggrieved ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) members, sympathizers, and citizens of Sekyere Kumawu district in Ashanti Region of Ghana have called for the removal of their District Chief Executive (DCE), Samuel Addai Agyekum.
This comes up after the aggrieved members described the DCE as having “woefully failed” as a government representative.
Addressing a press in Bodomase on Tuesday, February 9, 2021, the aggrieved members accused Mr. Agyekum of failed attempts at allegedly supporting an independent candidate to unseat his own NPP Member of Parliament (MP).
They also accused him of using derogatory words at the MP and refusing to heed the advice of influential regional members to resolve the issue.
The group said these and many others have led to less development in the party’s stronghold.
They have therefore pleaded with the president to replace Mr. Agyekum with a “proactive, industrious, well connected, and ready to work in harmony with the MP” person to ensure the development of the district and the party’s popularity in the constituency.
Their press release was read by convener George Ofosu.
