[OMG!Ghana] Following the swearing-in of the DCE, Peter Light Koomson, by the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development in spite of a court injunction, the Cape Coast High Court in the Central region is expected to hear the contempt proceedings brought against the Ministry and the DCE for Ajumako-Enyan-Essiam.

According to them the President?s nominee did not get two thirds of votes from them.

Speaking to Citi News, Assembly member for Kromaim Electoral Area, Noah Osei Asenso said they secured the injunction to restrain the chief director for local government and rural development from presenting the DCE to President Mahama.

?We filed for an injunction and prayed the court to restrain the chief director of the ministry of local government and rural development from presenting Hon Peter Light Koomson to the president for giving him instrument of an office,? he stated.

Mr. Asenso also noted, ?Last week, seven out of over twenty districts were called and I don?t think they have done any swearing in for any of the MMDCEs in other regions. In the Central Region, seven of them were called and inaugurated. When we spoke to our lawyer, he said it amounted to contempt since they were given the writ before the function.?

Adding that, ?We are praying the court to bring Light Koomson to order. The two people we cited were the Ministry of Local government and rural development and Peter Light Koomson.?
