Some infuriated residents of Pankrono in the Old Tafo Municipality of Ashanti region have asked President Nana Addo to dismiss their Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) as soon as possible.
The residents made of traders and Trotro Drivers, totaling over six hundred (600) led by Mr. Stephen Owusu have pronounced that the MCE for Old Tafo Dr. Fred Obeng Owusu is not fit to head the Tafo Municipal over again.
Old Tafo MCE Dr. Fred Obeng Owusu was appointed by President Akufo-Addo after the inauguration of the Old Tafo Municipal Assembly in 2018, March 15.
However, the residents claim they are disappointed in Dr. Fred Obeng Owusu over his incompetence.
They have alleged that he does not give respect to the people of Pankrono and therefore does not qualify to rule the municipal any longer.
“The MCE has on numerous occasions’ disrespected people of Pankrono and we will not sit aloof and watch him bring the name of the Municipal into “disrepute”, according to the Pankrono residents.
They stated again that the MCE has sidelined Pankrono community in terms of infrastructural development ever since he assumed office.
“The MCE has not done even a single project in Pankrono ever since he was appointed”, leader of the residents told Soireenews.com reporter Joseph Marfo in an exclusive interview.
They have further accused the MCE for being interested in holding positions rather than seeking the growth of the Old Tafo municipal.
“He doesn’t care about the development of this municipal. He’s only interested in seeking his own welfare and not we the citizens”.
They however have asked President Akufo-Addo to dismiss Dr. Fred Obeng Owusu with immediate effect else they will forcibly do it themselves.
They are demanding that the MCE should be replaced by someone from Pankrono or any competent person within the Old Tafo municipal.
They have warned to embark on a violent demonstration should Akufo-Addo reappoints Dr. Fred Obeng Owusu as Tafo MCE.
