Sekondi-Takoradi MCE suspended by Akufo-Addo (Video)

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has suspended the Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE) for Sekondi-Takoradi, Abdul-Mumin Issah.

His suspension follows his alleged assault of a police officer on Wednesday.

A statement signed by the Minister of Local Government, Decentralisation and Rural Development, Dan Botwe on Friday said, an inquiry into his conduct has also began.

“On the instructions of the President, the Metropolitan Chief Executive for Sekondi-Takoradi Assembly, Mr. Abdul Mumin Issah has been suspended from office with immediate effect pending an inquiry into his encounter with the Police on February 3, 2022,” the statement said.

It added that, “without prejudice to the matter now before court, government takes a very dim view of the comments made by the Metropolitan Chief Executive during his exchanges with the Police.”

The statement said the comments by the Chief Executive run contrary to the government’s belief and work to ensure that the security agencies and public agencies are resourced, empowered and accorded the respect to deliver on their mandates.

“In the interim, the Hon. Western Regional Minister, Mr. Kwabena Okyere Darko-Mensah has been assigned additional supervisory authority over the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolitan Assembly,” it added.
