An angry supporters of the ruling party NPP ,are protesting the removal of the Municipal Chief Executive for the area Kojo Ofori Safo and this has caused chaos in Abuakwa South Constituency.
On Wednesday morning the aggrieved NPP supporters locked up the party office at Akyem Apedwa and burnt flags and other paraphernalia of the party in expressing their displeasure.
President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo through the Local Government Minister, Dan Botwe announced Sunday September 19, 2021, nominated Akosua Asabea Annah to replace Kojo Ofori Safo who spent two years in office as MCE for Abuakwa South.
But aggrieved supporters of the party mostly from Akyem Apedwa community say the MCE was removed to satisfy the parochial interest of some individuals.
The supporters this morning attired in red armbands and holding placards with inscriptions expressing their displeasure and chanting war songs said all positions in Abuakwa South have been hijacked by people of Kyebi leaving other communities.
“We don’t want any appointment except the MCE position. We are demonstrating to tell the President that we are not happy with the nomination that he has made in Abuakwa South Winning an election is a major contributing factor to who becomes the next President and MCE thereby if we have done 100 percent of both why must we be denied the second when the President got the first”. the said
