A group of Concerned Assembly Members in the Bosome Freho District of the Ashanti Region, is contesting a move by some members of the assembly to pass a vote of no confidence in their District Chief Executive, Yaw Danso.
It insisted that the accusations levelled against him by their colleagues which included causing divisions within them, keeping motorbikes meant for them, and inciting members of the community against them were untrue.
The 22 Assembly members want the DCE impeached when they alleged that Mr Danso had instigated divisions within the assembly members and hoarding resources meant for them.
Assembly members who had commenced the vote of no confidence processes against Mr Danso had accused him of causing divisions within them, keeping motorbikes meant for them, and inciting community members against them.
But Samuel Acheampong, the Assembly member for Adeito Electoral Area, one of the opposing Assembly members, cautioned that the move by his colleagues would create confusion in the area.
He explained that the motorbikes were commissioned immediately after the election of the Presiding Member which were sponsored by him and he had gone for his and there was an official communiqué to all assembly members, directing them to come for their motorbikes.
“We want the party in Bosome Freho to be peaceful and united, we are signalling all political parties in the assembly to take themselves out of the issues in the constituency because the motorbikes were commissioned immediately after the election of the Presiding Member which were sponsored by him and I have gone for mine and there was an official communiqué to all assembly members, directing us to come for our motorbikes,” Mr Acheampong revealed.
However, Maxwell Boakye DeGraft, an Assembly member, alleged that Mr Danso was also instigating the community against them, kept their motorbikes which were supposed to be given to them are at the office and due to the alleged grievances, they began processes leading to the vote of no confidence.
“We summoned the DCE to the committee responsible for such issues that is where he is supposed to appear and we put before him all the charges and after he had answered the charges, that is when we were going to move to pass the vote of no confidence but circumstances prevented us we expect to take decision on the report, provided there is no counter motion following appearance before the committee,” he assured. -citinewsroom.com
