The Accra Mayor, Mohammed Nii Adjei Sowah, has condemned protests by some residents of Odododiodoo Constituency who rejected his exit.
In a press statement, the exiting Mayor implored residents to support any decision by President Akufo-Addo to replace him.
"As responsible citizens, we should recognize the President's authority to nominate individuals of his choice to promote his plan, and we must support the appointees to succeed.
I support all the President's nominations and commit to continue working towards the country's development," he stated.

UK Covid policy
A tweet by an international aviation expert indicates that the UK government will not consider Africans vaccinated as vaccinated.
Alex Macheras revealed on Twitter that Ghanaians and other Africans have no choice but to quarantine for ten days and take a Covid-19 test before getting into the UK society.
The irony of this development is that the UK government is one of the main contributors to vaccines to these African countries through the COVAX initiative.
The UK has donated £548 million to the COVAX facility - making it the most significant contributor to the COVAX-AMC in the world.
