Some Assembly Members of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly(AMA) have petitioned the Presiding Member(PM) demanding the removal of the Metropolitan Chief Executive.

The PM, Mr Alfred Asiedu Adjei has confirmed that his office has received a petition signed by eleven members of the assembly asking Madam Elizabeth Sackey to be sacked.

According to him, in the notice of resolution for the passage of a vote of no confidence on the mayor, the eleven petitioners raised issues such as; no tangible projects to show after more than a year as the mayor of Accra, abandonment of uncompleted projects within the Metropolis, intimidations and threats, procurement breaches, and nepotism among others.

He disclosed that the MCE and all the various departments concerned with the petition would be called to respond to the petition.

Mr Adjei indicated that the petition against the MCE would be heard by a fact-finding committee on Monday, February 20, 2023.

“When you the presiding member receive a petition, you have seven days to respond to that and quickly have an assembly meeting to set up a committee to delve into all the issues that have been raised.

“Per natural justice, we have to also give the Chief Executive the opportunity to also be represented to respond to the allegations that have been raised, so on Monday I am calling for an emergency assembly meeting,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Presiding Member commended the Assembly Members for addressing their grievances through the appropriate channel.
