President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has nominated Arimyao Somo Lucky as the Chief Executive officer for the West Mamprusi Municipal Assembly in the North East Region.
A statement issued Tuesday by the Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, Hajia Alima Mahama directed the Regional Minister, Mr Solomon Boar, to request the Electoral Commission to conduct a confirmation poll for Mr Lucky.
If confirmed, he will succeed Abu Mohammed who was sacked in November last year.
Though reasons were not assigned, it was alleged his dismissal was as a result of inefficiency and poor relationship with leadership and supporters of the New Patriotic Party in the region.
Mr Mohammed was overwhelmingly endorsed by members of the assembly after the President’s first nominee, Mr Saaka Sayuti, failed to get the nod on two consecutive times.
