President Akufo-Addo removes Hohoe MCE Daniel Noble Awumey


Daniel Noble Awumey has been relieved of his responsibilities as the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of the Hohoe Municipal Assembly by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

The dismissal was communicated, citing constitutional and legislative provisions, in an official letter dated Monday, March 25, 2024, signed by O.B. Amoah, the Minister of State in the Ministry of Local Government, Decentralization, and Rural Development.

The notice cited Section 20 (3) (b) of the Local Governance Act 2016 (Act 936) and Article 243 (3) (b) of the Constitution as justifications for terminating Awuley.

Awumey has been directed to transfer his responsibilities to the Regional Minister in accordance with the letter. Until a new Municipal Chief Executive is chosen, the Regional Minister will now preside over the Municipal Assembly.

Francis Fiakpui has been selected by President Akufo-Addo to take over the vacant position concurrently. The letter dated March 25, 2024 said, in parts, “…His Excellency the President of the Republic has revoked your appointment as Municipal Chief Executive for Hohoe Municipal Assembly. Consequently, you are to hand over your duties to the Hon. Regional Minister who will exercise oversight responsibility of the Municipal Assembly until the confirmation of a new Municipal Chief Executive.”

The reason for the revocation of the appointment was however not stated in the letter. The President thanked him for his service to the nation.
