The New Patriotic Party Assembly members’ caucus in the Asante-Akim Central Municipality has pledged to cooperate with any person appointed by the President as the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for the area.

Mr Alex Nyarko, Secretary to the Caucus, said members of the Assembly were waiting patiently for the nomination of whoever will be successful as the next MCE.

Addressing a press conference at Konongo, he urged the general public to disregard publications, commentaries and quotes seeking to portray the Assembly members as having declared support for a particular person for the position of MCE.

Mr Nyarko, who is also the NPP Financial Secretary for the Asante Akim Central Constituency emphasized that the power to appoint the chief executive of an assembly was the sole mandate of the President as enshrined in Ghana’s Constitution.

He said it was also not true that the current acting MCE of the area, Madam Susan Akomeah, had been endorsed by Assembly members.

He explained that Madam Akomeah had not expressed her interest to the Constituency Executive members nor Assembly members to retain the position as MCE.

Mr Nyarko urged President Nana Akufo-Addo to engage in broader consultations in the nominations of Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) to facilitate development in the various assemblies.

He explained that the just ended general elections had had serious effects on the New Patriotic Party, revealing the displeasure some citizens had for leaders in the assemblies and constituencies.

There is therefore, the need for varied opinions to play a critical role in the next selection, nomination and appointment of people to lead certain positions at all levels.

Mr Nyarko reiterated that the Party had issued directives for persons who had interest to occupy the chief executive positions in the various assemblies to submit their details to the Party’s Constituency’s Executive Committee for further actions.

He therefore urged interested persons in the Municipality to follow the directives as communicated by the Party.
