The deputy Ashanti Regional Secretary of the ruling new patriotic party Kwame Adom-Appiah, a lawyer, has been nominated as the District Chief Executive for Sekyere East after the removal of Mary Boatemaa Marfo on September 22, 2020, by the President, Nana Akufo-Addo.
The Ashanti Regional Minister “is required to liaise with the Regional Electoral Commission to conduct the confirmation process of the nominated Chief Executive,” according to a statement issued by the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development.
Although no reason has been given for the revocation of Mary Boatemaa Marfo’s appointment, Citi News has learned the development may be due to recent comments she made against Dr Nana Ayew Afriyie, Member of Parliament for the Effiduase-Asokore Constituency.
Kwame Adom-Appiah was a parliamentary aspirant for the New Patriotic Party in the Effiduase-Asokore Constituency.
Lawyer Adom-Appiah has been a pillar of the NPP in Ashanti Region hoping from one radio station to the defending the party. He has also been defending the party in court seeking justices for the party and its members.
