There was drama at the Juaben Municipal Assembly as the twice rejected nominee Alex Sarfo Kantanka, demanded a refund of monies paid to assembly members for his confirmation.
The nominee reportedly paid Ghc5,000 each to the 26 assembly members to influence them to vote in his favour.
They, however, failed to give him the endorsement he needed.
But for the police intervention, the nominee’s supporters would have assaulted the Atwima Nwabiagya South MP, Emmanuel Agyei Anhwere and assembly members.
He secured only five votes out of 26 votes cast during the first ceremony to confirm him.
The nominee in the second election garnered only ten votes out of the total 26, with one rejected ballot.
The nominee went into the assembly’s conference room where the members were gathered to demand a refund of money.
”I will take back my money from you. You will refund my money. I will take back my money,” he was heard saying to one of the assembly members.
