The Juaben Municipality has been without a Chief Executive for over a year after the president’s nominee, Alex Safo Kantanka, was rejected twice by the assembly members.

Mr Safo Kantanka is facing 26 corruption charges with respect to his confirmation following a probe by the Special Prosecutor’s office.

He  was captured in a video in November 2021 accusing assembly members in Juaben of refusing to confirm his nomination as the Municipal Chief Executive despite allegedly bribing them.

All 24 Assembly members who attended an Assembly meeting on Thursday, 14th July, 2022, voted to endorse the President’s nominee for Juaben Municipality in the Ashanti Region, Omane Aboagye.
