A group calling itself the Concerned National Democratic Congress (NDC) in Cape Coast has chastised the mayor of Cape Coast, Anthony Egyir Aikins, for crediting himself with what he has not achieved.
The grouptherefore sent a strong worded caution to the mayor to stop ?boasting? or they will expose him.
In a press statement signed and issued by Kwesi Nkrumah, leader of the group, they noted that Mr. Egyir Aikins has been going round trumpeting that he was the one who helped the NDC win the two Cape Coast parliamentary seats.
According to Mr. Nkrumah, the mayor was not part of the team which worked ?effortlessly? to help the NDC win both the Cape Coast South and North seats as he claims, adding ever since he was appointed the Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE) of Cape Coast, the party has been bedeviled with problems based on his lukewarm attitude and unguided utterances.
He pointed out that the mayor?s behaviour eventually debased the support the party has within the metropolis.
?He is always in dog-and-cat activities with the constituency executives and because of that he does not attend constituency executive committee meetings.
He did not contribute a penny to the party during the 2012 general elections,? the statement said.
According to the group, the mayor?s leadership only benefitted his friends, family members and some people from the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP).
He added that but for the timely intervention of the newly elected Member of Parliament (MP) for Cape Coast South, Kweku Ricketts Hagan, and works done by the MP for Cape Coast North, Lawyer Ebo Barton Odro, the NDC would have lost the two Cape Coast seats.
?We [the party members] are very peeved with the MCE but we are waiting patiently for President John Dramani Mahama since it is his prerogative to appoint and disappoint,? he stated.
The group therefore challenged the MCE to come out and clarify how he really partook in the party?s activities to contribute to their victory in December 2012.
