The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Ejura municipality Hon. Mohammed Salisu Bamba has written to the National Vetting Committee of the ruling New Patriotic Party to withdraw his application for MCE.
This was contained in a letter dated 9th July which has been intercepted by CitizenOne
According to the embattled MCE, his resignation was as a result of the tension in Ejura which has already claimed three live. He said in part, “I arrived at this decision for the peace of the municipality and the general unity of the New Patriotic Party”.
The MCE used the opportunity to thank the president for the confidence reposed in him to serve in his first term of office. He also thanked the good people of Ejura for allowing him to serve them in the past couple of years. He wished them well and prayed that peace may be restored to his homeland once more.
Ibrahim Mohammed aka Kaaka was attacked by unknown men in Ejura. He died later in Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital. His death resulted to an uproar which lead to the killing of two civilians and maming of six others. The MCE to the area has been widely blamed for the attack and subsequent chaos.
Yesterday, CitizenOne reported that three MDCEs in Ashanti region who contested in the last parliamentary election but lost will suffer some casualties. They include Ejura Sekyedumase, Sekyere Afram Plains and Asawase.
The president will be naming his 260 MMDCEs by close of this week and we are not expecting to see Hon. Salisu Bamba in the list.
