In a letter addressed to the office of the president, Mr. Fleisher- Kwabi attributed his resignation to the fact that any decision he may take as MCE may be misinterpreted.
This, the MCE said, is because he failed the bid to be nominated as a parliamentary candidate for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the area.
“As a Chief Executive for the past seven years I had to implement many hard but cogent decisions of the assembly, some of which brought fierce resistance and confrontation from some party functionaries and executives… there are many more of such decisions which if not implemented could render the Assembly impotent and ineffective; but now that I have lost the Parliamentary Primaries, any attempt to implement them is likely to be misinterpreted or misconstrued,” he added.
Mr. Fleisher- Kwabi also explained that his decision to resign is in the best interest of the party.
He said “in order not to worsen the already highly volatile situation, I deem it honorable to bow out of office when the applaud is loudest and call for my replacement in the interest of our great party the NDC.”
“As stipulated in my letter of appointment, I wish to seize this opportunity to serve His Excellency the President the mandatory three months’ notice of my resignation from office as a Chief Executive.”
Samuel Fleisher- Kwabi also reiterated his support for the president and the parliamentary candidate elect of Suhum, and stated that he is ready to avail himself for any assignment that will “propel our Great Party into Victory come 2016.”
He, along with Dale Nettey Marbell, lost in the NDC parliamentary primaries held last week in the Suhum constituency to Margaret Ansei.
