The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of the Ejura-Sekyedumase Municipality Mohammed Salisu Bamba has withdrawn his application for the position of MCE.
He reportedly arrived at the decision for the “peace of the municipality and the general unity and growth of the New Patriotic Party.”
Salisu Bamba came under heavy attack after the killing of social media activist Ibrahim Mohammed popularly known as Kaaka at his home Saturday, June 26.
Bamba was accused of being complacent in the gruesome murder after reports he had cautioned the late activist for making the government unpopular in his social media posts.
Kaaka was known to call out the government on social media, especially Facebook over developmental lapses in the area.
In a letter addressed to the Chairman of the MCE vetting committee at the Jubilee House through the Ashanti regional minister, the MCE wrote “I write to withdraw my application for the position of Municipal Chief Executive of Ejura-Sekyedumase Municipality. I arrived at this decision for the peace of the municipality and the general unity and growth of the New Patriotic Party.”
