NPP polls: MCE, ECG boss accused of fuelling tensions in Ejisu

The protestors wielded placards as they marched through the streets of Ejisu demanding the immediate removal of the MCE over his conduct

Some New Patriotic Party (NPP) supporters in Ejisu in the Ashanti Region have staged a demonstration against the Municipal Chief Executive of the area, Samuel Oduro Frimpong.

According to the protesters, their action is in response to comments made by the MCE in the just ended polling station elections.

They further accused the MCE of doing the bidding of the Managing Director of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), Kwame Agyemang-Budu who they accuse of fueling tensions within the party.

The protesters, some of whom wore party attire, wielded placards as they marched through the streets of Ejisu demanding the immediate removal of the MCE over his conduct.

The MCE is reported to have commented on a petition submitted to his office by some aggrieved members alleging that elections in the constituency did not follow due process.

“I was commenting on contents of the petition filed by some aggrieved party members that there was no election held in the constituency, yet some people were acclaimed as polling station officers after the election was allegedly held in the night.

“…So, the constituency executives also filed another petition to the party’s regional office… I also pointed out to the host that as a former chairman of the party I have never witnessed elections being held at night and that’s my sin,” the MCE said.

Listen to some of the protesters who spoke to Asaase News:


The MCE has since rejected all the allegations levelled against him.
