A statement issued by the Local Government Ministry reads;

Without prejudice to the matter before the court, the government takes a very dim view of the comments made by the Metropolitan Chief Executive Officer of Sekondi Takoradi during his exchanges with the police.

Following the instructions of the President, the Metropolitan Chief Executive Officer of Sekondi Takoradi, Mr. Abdul-Mumin Issah has been duly suspended from his duty in line with his assault with the police of 3rd February 2022.

The government took a dim view of the comments made by the MCE during his exchange with the police officer.

The comments made by the MCE contradict the laid down beliefs of the government and thus work to ensure that the security agencies are resourced.

The Hon. Western Regional Minister, Mr. Kwabena Okyere Darko-Mensah has been assigned additional supervisory authority over the Sekondi Takoradi Metropolitan Assembly.
