The Metropolitan Chief Executive for the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly, Mr Kojo Bonsu is still in Office as the Mayor of Kumasi contrary to report in the Media that he has been removed from Office by the President John Dramani Mahama.
The report also indicated that, following his dismissal as the Metropolitan Chief Executive for Kumasi, the Ashanti Regional Minister, Alexander Akon has been asked to act as the Kumasi Mayor until the President appoints a new person to take over.
The Ashanti Regional Minister has however debunked the report which suggested that he was the acting Metropolitan Chief Executive for the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly.
Mr Alexander Akon described the report as frivolous saying, ‘ it is not true, Mr Kojo Bonsu is still the Kumasi Mayor. There is no communication from the Presidency relieving him of his post.
The Asanteman Traditional Council was up in arms with the Kumasi Mayor calling on the President to remove him for unilaterally dismissing the Amoamahene, Nana Agyenim Boateng from the Kejetia Market project Board without notifying the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II
