Akufo-Addo suspends MCE for Sekondi-Takoradi

The MCE for Sekondi-Takoradi has been suspended from office with immediate effect, a letter signed by Daniel Botwe, the Minister of Local Government, Decentralisation and Rural Development has said.

“On the instructions of the president, the Metropolitan Chief Executive for Sekondi-Takoradi Assembly, Mr Abdul-Mumin Issah has been suspended from office with immediate effect pending an inquiry into his encounter with the police on 3 February 2022.”

“Without prejudice to the matter now before court, government takes a very dim view of the comments made by the Metropolitan Chief Executive during his exchanges with the police,” the letter said.

Police in the Western Region on Thursday (3 February 2022) arrested Abdul-Mumin Issah, the metropolitan chief executive for Sekondi-Takoradi, for an alleged motor traffic offence, verbal assault and offensive conduct against a police officer.

Bail

The Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolitan Chief Executive, Abdul-Mumin Issah has been granted bail after spending one night in police custody for a road traffic offence and alleged assault of a police officer.

He was arraigned in court Friday morning for dangerous driving and alleged assault of a police officer.

The court granted him a GHC100,000 bail on one charge and a self-recognisance bail on the other.
