Okumkom blessing Hon. Osei Assibey Antwi, when the Kumasi Mayor Nominee visited him at his residence
NANA AKWASI Agyeman, the longest serving Mayor of Kumasi, has praised President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for appointing Mr. Osei Assibey Antwi, a respected person, as the next Kumasi Mayor.
According to him, Kumasi needs a competent, hard working, patriotic and a visionary to occupy the ‘hot’ mayor seat.
Nana Akwasi Agyeman aka ‘Okumkom’, stated that Mr. Osei Assibey, without doubt, was the suitable person as Kumasi Mayor.
Speaking in an interview with DAILY GUIDE, he said Mr. Osei Assibey’s appointment indicates that President Akufo-Addo really means business and wanted to see massive transformation in Kumasi within a short period.
He described the president’s nominee as a respectful and development oriented person, who performed excellently when he was the deputy Ashanti Regional Minister.
Nana Akwasi Agyeman stated that Mr. Osei Assibey can easily bring the needed transformation that Kumasi had been hankering for over the years.
Okumkom, who is from the royal Oyoko clan of Asanteman, therefore urged the assemblymen in Kumasi to confirm the president’s nominee on Friday.
“I will personally accompany Osei Assibey to the election venue on Friday for all to see that I support him totally”, he remarked.
Meanwhile, traders in the Kumasi Central Market have also praised President Akufo-Addo for settling on Mr. Osei Assibey as the Kumasi Mayor.
They said the president’s nominee is a team player and a competent person, so he can lead the city into affluence with support from all and sundry.
At a press conference in Kumasi on Wednesday, the traders also appealed to the assemblymen to confirm Mr. Osei Assibey as mayor on Friday to bring honour to President Akufo-Addo.
