Sekyere East DCE sacked for ‘plotting’ MP’s defeat
The District Chief Executive (DCE) for Sekyere East at Effiduase in the Ashanti Region, Mary Boatemaa Marfo, was sacked from her post.
In a letter written by a Deputy Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, Kwasi Boateng Adjei, the decision by the President, in accordance with Article 243(3)(b) of the 1992 Constitution, takes immediate effect.
This comes after she was reportedly heard on a leaked tape plotting the defeat of the Member of Parliament for Effiduase/Asokore constituency, Dr. Nana Ayew Afriyie.
The District Chief Executive for Sekyere East at Effiduase in the Ashanti Region is reported to have vowed to work against the NPP in the constituency in the 2020 election.
In a leaked audio, the DCE is heard in a conversation with a party member saying that she will do all she can to frustrate voters, thereby, reducing the votes of the NPP and the MP, Dr Nana Ayew Afriyie.
“Me l will not tell you who to vote for, it in your head but we will reduce the votes so that the President will see that Ayew Afriyie is a nobody,” she is heard in the leaked audio.
