A group named “Concerned Citizens of Amenfi East” has kicked against the reappointment of Helena Appiah, as Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Amenfi East.
The concerned residents claim Mrs. Helena Appiah is incompetent and has since her appointment failed Amenfi East residents.
Speaking at a press Conference the leader of the group Mr. Emmanuel Kwasi Oduro stated; the group bring to the notice of the appointing authority that, a decision to maintain our non performing and clueless outgoing MCE will be the most unfortunate decision and travesty of justice to our people and next generations.”
”Hon. Helena Ama Appiah has had no plan, purpose, or direction for the job except to amass wealth through the galamsey business, already a public knowledge. To many of us she came to do business.
Those who knew her as a former Assembly member and Circuit supervisor expected nothing better from her administration. She was and it still not cut for the job. We were told she was appointed on grounds of affirmative action but it is sad to report to Mr. President that, the beneficiary of an affirmative action has failed to champion the course of the women in whose name she was appointed. Market women, traders, NPP polling station women organizers and many other groups have expressed their displeasure about her performance and relationship with them.
Our Municipality is now on a life support and needs a competent, vibrant and an energetic visionary leader to the rescue.”
“The group also accused their MCE of other wrongdoings saying ”she allocated most of the school feeding slots to herself, her family and friends. Her daughter who was not a supplier became the sole supplier of all school feeding materials.
Again, Job opportunities were given to his family and friends at the detriment of NPP die hard foot-soldiers and many more. All these instances contravene the general administrative principles of conflict of interest.
Her actions and inactions created disaffection for the NPP party and contributed to the president’s defeat in the constituency by over 4000 votes, the worst ever for an NPP presidential candidate since 2000.
Her reappointment will spell doom for the NPP in future elections”.
They group threatened to demonstrate if the President fails to heed their call.
