Mr. President, Retain George Cyril Bray As Ablekuma West MCE - Assembly Members Tell Prez Akufo-Addo

The Assembly members in Ablekuma West constituency have appealed to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to retain their Municipal Chief Executive, George Cyril Bray.

The renomination of Mr. Cyril Bray as MCE has courted controversies as some group calling itself ''Concerned Patriots of Ablekuma West'' has vehemently kicked against the decision.

The group is calling for the removal of the MCE.

They say the MCE has a bad interpersonal relationship with the Assembly members.

Chairman of the group, Eric Mensah in an interview with TV3, explained why they want the MCE removed. 

"He has a bad interpersonal relationship with the assemblymen, who are party members and also does not recognize them as honourable members...He embarked on unnecessary demolition exercise, leading to massive vote reduction in Ablekuma West.

“The MCE does not have a listening ear for the grassroots. He categorically stated that the municipality is autonomous [and] not there to serve the party members. This unfortunate statement discouraged most of the members which led to vote reduction against the target set by the Constituency in the just ended elections.

“He does not have an iota of respect for the Constituency officers and therefore calling them useless who have sold our time, freedom and right to our party", the group alleged.

But the presiding member of the Assemblies in the constituency, Emelia Agyemfra Donkor has refuted the allegations.

She said; ''It's not true that the MCE has a bad relationship with us. George Cyril Bray is a very humble person. He is approachable; we don't have any problems with him.''

Speaking on behalf of the Assembly members, she noted that the Assemblies are in favor of Mr. Cyril Bray, hence calling on the President to re-appoint him to be MCE for the area.
