Bread sellers and bakers of Nsawam/Adoagyiri Municipality in the Eastern Region have petitioned President Akufo-Addo to nominate Emmanuel Owusu Arthur as Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for the area.

Already, some chiefs and New Patriotic Party (NPP) executives in the constituency have urged the president to confirm Mr Owusu Arthur.

They have welcomed the alleged report by the Dan Botwe Chaired Committee to the President for recommending Emmanuel Owusu as the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) nominee for the Municipality.

According to them, they believe he will greatly assist in developing the municipality and also improve the livelihoods of residents.

The Gyasehene of the Sakyikrom, Nana Owusu Aduomi ll, explained that they have observed that Emmanuel Owusu has what it takes to be a leader.

The Abotendomehene of Sakyikrom, Nana Kwame Addo I, added that Mr Owusu had a good working relationship with the MP when he served as the treasurer and demonstrated a high sense of belongingness and dedication to the Nsawam Adoagyiri municipality.

The bread sellers in a petition, signed by its president, Akosua Adutwumwaa, said the nominee recommended by the Committee is humble and hardworking.

According to her, they can foresee growth and development as they believe “he can work hand in hand with our MP, Frank Annoh-Dompreh.”

“Mr President, we know that you have a listening ear, so do this favour to Nsawam/Adogyiri and let’s develop the constituency as our contribution to the nation. We hope our request will be granted in good faith,” the bread sellers added.

Already, 12 out of the 16 NPP constituency executives have also petitioned the presidency to replace the incumbent MCE.

In their statement, they “We humbly suggest you consider Mr Emmanuel Owusu, the current constituency treasurer for the Municipal Chief Executive position.”

According to them, he has served the party in the constituency in various ways.

They added that he is a true patriot, and has worked as a polling station secretary, and risen through the party ranks to become the constituency treasurer.

The party executives noted that his administrative acumen has helped manage and put things in order at the party office in Nsawam.

According to them, reports of some people working behind the scenes to get the Acting MCE, Isaac Kwadwo Buabeng renominated “would further deepen the woes and destroy the chances of the party in future elections if that decision is taken.” 

They say this is likely to reduce the number of votes in the constituency “through the actions and inactions of our current MCE.”

“We shall be highly disappointed in the president if he is re-appoints him, and we want to state that we cannot guarantee the party’s success in future elections if this happens”, the constituency executives stated.
