Some constituency executives of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in Nsawam Adoagyiri in the Eastern Region have welcome the purported report recommending Mr. Emmanuel Owusu, as the MCE nominee for the Municipality.

According to them, the nominee has the credentials to spearhead the development of the Municipality and also improve the livelihood of residents.

Earlier in May, this year, twelve out of the 16 party executives in the constituency issued a statement to endorse Mr Owusu.

“We humbly suggest to you to consider Mr. Emmanuel Owusu, the current constituency treasurer for the Municipal Chief Executive position,” the statement said.

According to them, Mr. Owusu has served the party in the constituency in various ways, adding that he is a true patriot.

According to the constituency executives, he has worked as a polling station secretary and risen through the party structures to become the constituency treasurer.

They noted that his administrative acumen has helped to manage and put things in order at the party office in Nsawam.

“We know and believe that with him as the Municipal Chief Executive, government flagship programs will see the light of day within the municipality. Mr. President, we wish our humble request will meet your kind consideration and approval,” they appealed.

Some chiefs from the traditional area, led by Gyasehene of the Sakyikrom, Nana Owusu Aduomill, also called a news conference in May to endorse the candidature of Emmanuel Owusu.

Meanwhile, following the leaked report that Emmanuel Owusu has been nominated for the post, some of the executives are alleging some unseen hands have started working to apparently overturn the verdict of the vetting committee and impose their choice on them.

They threaten to protest should the decision of the vetting committee be overturned at the last hour.

Already, there is tension in Ada over the same leaked report, which has purportedly detailed report of the MMDCE Vetting Committee, which the majority of the youth in the Ada East District did not like.

Some of the people interviewed in the municipality said they would not embark on any violence but they have the right to protest should the verdict as it stands now be changed.

According to them, the incumbent MCE is equally a party member, but it will not serve the interest of the party that he is allowed to continue, because he cannot rake in the votes.
