Officers of the Ghana Police Service who are doing marvelously well in upholding the law have arrested Alex Sarfo Kantanka, the Juaben MCE nominee in the Ashanti Region, following a viral video of him demanding a refund of alleged bribe monies he paid assembly members for his confirmation.
According to Citi News, the nominee was subsequently granted a self recognizance bail by the police.
Police officers in the municipality have also commenced investigations into the alleged bribe payments to ascertain the truth of the matter.
Background to the Juaben MCE Alex Sarfo Kantanka
The President’s nominee, for the Juaben Municipal Assembly, was rejected by assembly members in the area.
As an unhappy fellow, Alex was captured in a secretly filmed video, demanding a refund of the bribe he allegedly paid to some assembly members after they rejected him during a nearly chaotic confirmation process.
In a video available to Trendsmaniac News, the rejected nominee was seen hurling insults and curses at some individuals believed to be assembly members for accepting his money but refusing to confirm him as the substantive MCE for the area.
In some instances, he was seen angrily exchanging words with some assembly members and demanding the return of monies paid to them.
He was also caught on camera asking everyone who accepted the cash “to be ready to return his money urgently”.
Earlier in the day, the Ashanti Regional Minister, Simon Osei Mensah, was seen appealing to members of the Juaben Municipal Assembly to forget the past and vote for the President’s nominee.
