NPP Supporters Go on Rampage Over MCE

The supporters have shutdown the party office and began burning lorry tyres to precise their displeasure over the appointment of the nominee.

President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo through the government Minister, Dan Botwe published on Sunday September 19, 2022, the nomination of Yohanny Ashietey to take over the position as Tema Mayor.

Few moments after the nomination, some members of the party hit the streets, pouring out their anger of the rejection of their constituency Chairman, Charles Boateng who they thought was more qualified for the post than all the competitors.

The party supporters said they need suspended the mass registration of members within the constituency because they need never had one appointment since NPP was formed although they need worked for the party to return to power and won all polling stations within the constituency within the last two general elections.

According to them, they see no essence of sacrificing for the party and getting nothing reciprocally , therefore they need stopped working for the party within the Tema Central.

First Member of Parliament of Tema Central Constituency, Sylvester Yankey mentioned that they need been denied appointment for long after suffering enough for the party.

They believed their chairman was denied the position due to tribal line being towed by the Tema Traditional Council.

“We do not want any appointment apart from the Municipal Chief Executive position. We are demonstrating to inform the President that we aren't proud of the nomination that he has made in Tema. Winning an election may be a major contributing factor to who becomes subsequent President and MCE thereby if we've done one hundred pc of both why must we be denied the second when the President got the primary .

“We are demonstrating to inform the President that we have ceased to figure for the party. He should go and convey the normal rulers to return and do the work for him since he listens and believes in them than us. Thanks,” Prince Ayim Nuamah- Deputy Secretary stated.

However, the immediate past District Chief Executive (DCE) for Ningo-Prampram, Jonathan Paanii Doku has thanked the President for giving him the chance to express his quota during his first term.

He has assured the President his readiness to figure for him anytime he's called upon.
