The Concerned Citizens Association of Tarkwa-Nsuaem in the Western Region has appealed to the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to reconsider his decision to revoke the appointment of Mr Gilbert Kennedy Asmah as the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of Tarkwa-Nsuaem.

According to them, under the leadership of the MCE, the municipality has recognised in all spheres of life and the revocation, however, struck their heart.

“The Hon. MCE has demonstrated beyond reasonable doubt that a municipality which had 79th position nationwide in the 2016/2017 District League Table assessment of Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Assemblies, by the Centre for Democratic Development (CDD –Ghana), performed creditably to a 7th position in the 2017/2018 assessment under his leadership.

“In addition, the Municipal Assembly was also 5th across the entire country under the Local Government Performance Management Assessment of MMDAs in 2019, and 1st in the Western region through his efforts,” they said in a statement copied to GhanaWeb.
