More trouble in Cape Coast as Concerned Assembly Members return monies allegedly given to them

There is more fire on the mountain for the president's nominee to the position of the Chief Executive Officer of the Cape Coast Metropolitan Assembly. Since Ernest Arthur was nominated, the assembly members who votes will either approve or disprove his candidature have rejected him twice, causing the central regional minister to go down on her knees to plead with the member to approve him. It has raised various concerns about the nominee, and the regional minister has come under hot water for going down that road.

This morning, a more serious news about the approval of Mr Arthur comes from a group of the members of the assembly who have come out publicly to return some monies that were allegedly shared to them before the voting. In the words of this group, as shown on TV3 midday news, the movies were allegedly given to them as gifts, but they will not accept any of such gifts before voting because they believe that the purpose may be to "buy their conscience".

"In order clear our integrity, we The Concerned Assembly Members are returning the gift back to them. We want to set a precedence and let other assembly members know that monies or gifts given before voting is not a good ethical behavior. We want to also tell everyone that we have not taken any $100 from honourable Rikit Hagan, as being speculated", the spokesperson concluded.
