Ejura protests fallouts: Bamba withdraws from MCE race

The Municipal Chief Executive Officer (MCE) for Ejura-Sekyedumase, Mohammed Salisu Bamba, has withdrawn his application for re-appointment as MCE.

Mr Bamba, who was the first New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for Ejura, became the MCE after losing his seat in the 2016 parliamentary election.

He has since served as the MCE and had applied for reconsideration as the MCE for the area.


However, in a letter dated July 9, 2021 and addressed through the Ashanti Regional Minister to the Vetting Committee of Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives of the Jubilee House, Mr Bamba said he was withdrawing his application for the position.

“I have arrived at this decision for the peace of the municipality and the general unity and growth of the NPP.

“I have always worked in the service of my party and country and it is in that spirit that I am withdrawing myself for consideration,” he stated.

Mr Bamba, however, assured the people of the municipality and members of the NPP that he would continue to work for the general good of the municipality, the party and the country as a whole.

Mr Bamba was grateful to the President for the confidence reposed in him and offering him the opportunity to serve in his first term in office.

“I also graciously thank the good people of Ejura-Sekyedumase Constituency for giving me the opportunity to serve them in the sixth Parliament to the best of my ability,” he said.


Ejura has gained national attention following disturbances in the area which led to the death of two young men, Abdul Nassir Yussif and Muntala Mohammed, and causing injuries to four others.
