KMA decides on Osei Assibey Antwi as Kumasi mayor today

Assembly Members of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) met Friday morning to decide on the fate of Mr Osei Assibey Antwi who has been nominated by President Akufo-Addo as Chief Executive of the KMA.

Mr. Osei Assibey served as a deputy Ashanti regional minister during President Kufuor’s administration between 2006 and 2009.

The 135 assembly members of KMA are expected to vote to endorse or reject his nomination.

Graphic Online’s Daniel Kenu who is covering the elections has given the indication that the process is expected to be smooth.Already some assembly members in separate media interviews have said they will endorse Mr Osei Assibey since they were happy with his nomination.

Mr Assibey Antwi, 52 is a native of Kuwawu Wonoo in the Ashanti region.

He holds MBA in Marketing and is a certified Member of the Institute of Commercial Management.

He worked as an Assistant Inspector of Taxes responsible for Financial and Administrative at the then Internal Revenue Service (IRS) now part of the Ghana Revenue Authority.

He has knowledge in governance and leadership and understands the workings of Local Government Administration.


He served as Ashanti Regional Vice Chairman of the NPP from 2000 to 2008 and attempted to go to Parliament in 2008 on the ticket of the Manhyia constituency but was unsuccessful at the parliamentary primary in 2007.

After learning under Dr Kwame Addo Kufuor, the then MP for Manhyia and assuming that the seat was to be handed over to him, Dr Mathew Opoku Prempeh (NAPO), the current Education Minister entered the race and won the primary to take over from, Dr Addo Kufuor.
