The embattled mayor of the Kumasi metropolis, Kojo Bonsu has resigned.
His resignation follows a never ending impasse between him and the Kumasi Traditional Council (KTC).
In a resignation letter, Mr Bonsu noted that: "I have conveyed my resignation as the Metropolitan Chief Executive of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly to the President of the Republic of Ghana”.
He also expressed his gratitude to President John Mahama and the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu and Nananom as well as the staff of the KMA and the people of Kumasi for the opportunity to serve the people.
The Council, last week, performed the necessary rituals at the Manhyia palace to terminate all relationships with Mr Bonsu.
They gave a week’s ultimatum for the sacking of Kumasi’s embattled mayor. The ultimatum was on the back of an apology letter by Kojo Bonsu to the council after he allegedly took a unilateral decision to remove Amoamanhene, Nana Agyenim Boateng from the Kejetia market project board without informing the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.
