The Berekum Municipal Assembly voted massively to confirm Mr. Kofi Adjei as the new Municipal Chief Executive of the Berekum. The electoral college of 64 members failed to vote and confirm him for the first time on Friday, May 12 this year, he had 35 out of the total vote cast. The Assembly upon his second chance on Monday, May 22, 2017, voted 61 out of the 64 for him, denoting 95.3% of the total votes, to confirm him.
Prior to Mr. Adjei’s nomination, he was the Municipal Chairman of the New Patriotic Party.
He was sworn into office by Lawer Kwaku Asomah Cheremeh, the Brong Ahafo Regional Minister, after the elections. The Minister therefore charged the MCE to be firm and work towards the realization of the policies of the party and developmental agenda of the constituents.
