President Akufo-Addo in accordance with article 243(1) of the 1992 constitution and section 20(1) of the Local Government Act, Act 936, has nominated a former Takoradi Constituency chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) Abdul Mumin Issah as the new Metropolitan Chief Executive for Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolitan Assembly.
The nomination of Chairman Mun, as he is affectionately called, comes following the unfortunate demise of the late mayor Anthony KK Sam.
In a statement, local government minister Hajia Alima Mahama directed the regional minister Kwabena Okyere Darko Mensah to oversee the confirmation of the President’s nominee.
Meanwhile, the Akuapim North Metropolis and Amansie South District chief executives have also been removed from office by the President.
The President has also nominated Barima Awuah Sarpong Asiedu-Larbi as Municipal Chief Executive for Akwapin North Municipality.
