KMA boss sworn in

The Chief Executive of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA), Osei Assibey Antwi, has been inducted into office.

The programme, which was held in Kumasi on Thursday April 13, was attended by high profile personalities of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Ashanti Region.

Mr Antwi was appointed in March by President Nana Akufo-Addo and received an overwhelming endorsement by the assembly members.

The Assembly had to postpone its first committee meeting because of the delay in swearing in the KMA boss to begin work.

A Presiding Member of the assembly, Abraham Boadi, had expressed worry that the delay in the swearing-in of the KMA boss had stalled progress.

Information gathered by Class FM’s regional correspondent, Owoahene Addai Mununkum, indicated that tension was building up between assembly members at KMA and the Ashanti Regional Minister.

According to the Presiding Members, they did not understand why Mr Antwi had not been inducted to begin work. Mr Boadi told Class News that the development in the metropolis had come to a standstill for over two years and further delays could not be tolerated.

“Why can’t we work? The others are working, Accra is working for the past four years, Cape Coast is working, so we need to speed up development in our metropolis,” he lamented.

However, the induction of Mr Antwi is expected to put all disputes to rest.
