Tema NDC Split Over MCE Selection

Some disgruntled members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) calling themselves Coordinating Committee Executives of Tema NDC are up in arms against three constituency chairmen of the party in the Tema metropolis accusing them of using unwarranted means to promote the appointment of an unknown banker as Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE) of Tema.
Several issues emerged after the President asked the Tema MCE of Tema, Kempes Robert Ofosuware to take a bow.
Richard Fiadomor, Tema NDC Coordinating Committee secretary, during a news conference in Tema, pointed out that they had been reliably informed that chairmen of the three constituencies had recommended a top banker, (name withheld) to government.
The Coordinating Committee executives, who descended heavily on the chairmen noted that ‘we are taking this proactive step to alert His Excellency, the President not to buy into the machination of these known and unknown individuals who are seeking to foist this banker on us.’
The aggrieved members said the decision of the three executives was taken at a secret meeting without any consultation with executive committee members.
According to them, the appointment of the said banker would affect the loyalty of members of the party, as the said banker was an unknown person within the party in Tema.
They called on the party chairmen to choose persons like George Komla Medie, Kempes Ofosuware, Eben Anuwa Amarh, James Enu, Albert Antwi Nuamah and Francis Gariba, who they believed have contributed to the growth of the party in past years.
They warned that any attempt to nominate an unpopular person would spell doom for the party.
According to the aggrieved Coordinating Committee Executives, ‘We wish to make it abundantly clear to them and any other unseen hands, wherever they may be either in government or the party in the region, that we have come very far and cannot be taken for a ride by any person or group of persons.’
