Assembly members fully endorse Kumasi MCE nominee
Assembly members of the Kumasi Metropolitan
Assembly (KMA), have fully endorsed Osei Assibey
Antwi, President Akufo-Addo’s nominee for the KMA
Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE) position.
Unlike KMA’s election troubles in the past, 132
out of 133 assembly members gave Osei Assibey the
nod as the Kumasi Mayor, representing 99.2%
approval. The Yes or No election saw one spoilt
ballot out of the 133 valid votes cast.
The one-time Deputy Regional Minister, Mr. Osei
Assibey in his appreciation speech, expressed his
gratefulness to the assembly for giving him the
nod. He encouraged all members to work with him to
restore Kumasi’s accolade as the garden city of
Minister lauds KMA for ousting Kojo Bonsu
The Ashanti Regional minister, Simon Osei Mensah,
who was present, lauded the assembly members for
ousting the previous Kumasi mayor, Kojo Bonsu. He
said their action will serve as a deterrent to
anyone who occupies the position of MCE, and keep
him on his toes.
He asked the assembly members to accord the
approved Metropolitan Chief Executive all the
respect, and work with him for the development of
Kumasi. The approved Chief Executive will soon be
sworn in to begin his official duties.
