Video: Kumawu MP Philip Basoa Prevented From DCE Confirmation

There was drama at the renomination and confirmation of Samuel Addai Agyekum as the District Chief Executive for Kumawu in the Ashanti Region.

Having failed to secure two-third votes on two consecutive processes for his confirmation, it was a do-or-die affair when it came down to a final chance on Friday, October 15, 2021.

Only Assembly Members perceived to be loyalists of the nominee were granted accreditation to participate in the confirmation exercise.

One prominent figure who failed to gain access to the assembly hall where the voting was taking place was the Member of Parliament, Philip Basoa.

A video-making rounds show the legislator pleading fruitlessly with the Presiding Member of the Assembly to intervene but to no avail.

“PM, you are supposed to allow me entry, you are the person who invited… you invited us to participate,” he told the Presiding Member who shoved him off and dashed into the hall while the MP attempted to follow him with shouts of “no, no, no don’t go.”
