Three persons have been tipped to occupy the now vacant position of Chief Executive Officer of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA).
The three who are lobbying intensely for the post according to media reports are Samuel Sarpong and Peter Anarfi Mensah, who have both been ministers for the region.
The third person in the contest is known as Thomas Kwabena Braimah a business mogul, a philanthropist and a card-bearing member of the National Democratic Congress based in Kumasi.
The Daily Pen newspaper reports that initially five persons were in contention but have been reduced to three for the president to choose.
According to the report, Thomas Kwabena Braimah in spite of being a novice might claim the seat as members of the Municipal Assembly are strongly backing his candidature.
Former Mayor of the KMA, Kwadwo Bonsu resigned last week after the Asanteman Council asked His Excellency President John Mahama to relieve him of his position over a decision he made to remove Nana Agyenime Boateng the Amoamanhene, from the Kejetia Market project board without informing the appropriate traditional heads.
