The Eastern Regional Executives of the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP) wishes to state categorically and unequivocally that the list being circulated on social media purported to be the list of Municipal and District Chief Executives of the Eastern Region is fake.
The party in the region is therefore urging the residents in the region and the general public to disregard such a list.
In a statement issued and signed by Mr David Prah, Eastern Regional Communications Director, of the NPP of which Freedom has sighted, said the said fake MDCEs list is believed to be causing apprehension and uneasiness among some party faithful in the Region.
While in some cases, the said fake list has resulted in widespread and spontaneous jubilation among other party members in the Region.
The Regional Executives, therefore, wish to use this opportunity to inform Party Members and the entire people of Eastern Region to disregard the said list on the social media and treat it with the contempt it deserves.
The Regional Party wishes to emphasize that the prerogative to appointing the MMDCEs lies squarely at the doorstep of the President of the Republic according to which the Constitution of the Republic of Ghana and the Local Governance Act of 2016, Act 936 clearly states.
The Regional Party is, therefore, urging all Party Members to remain calm and wait for President H. E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to officially announce the genuine list.
Meanwhile, the Regional Party wish to admonished all members who are either jubilating or tensed to remain calm and wait for the President to officially announce the list of all MMDCEs
The Regional Party continues to encourage members to join hands to work hard in supporting our President H. E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, his Vice H. E. Alhaji Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, and the entire NPP Government to achieve the mandate given to the Party by Ghanaians.
