President Akufo-Addo has been hailed by the Chief Executive Officer of the Chamber of Bulk Oil Distribution, Senyo Hosi, for exhibiting qualities of a great leader, ABC News can report.

Senyo Hosi’s applause of the President stems from his decision to place the Referendum on hold until such a time when there is consensus among all parties for political party involvement at the local level.

This follows the opposition, National Democratic Congress decision to withdraw their support for ‘Yes’ vote to canvassing for ‘No’ vote” barely a month to the national exercise.

The President, in a night broadcast to the nation, announced his decision to call off the December 17 Referendum to allow for broader consensus to take place.

“It is with deep regrets that I have given instructions to the Minister of Local Government and Rural Development who will spear this process on behalf of government with commendable vigour and dynamism to abort the process and seek the withdrawal of the Bills for the amendment of the constitution both in respect of Article 243(1) and Article 55(3),” President Akufo-Addo announced in a broadcast to the nation, Sunday night.

President Akufo-Addo retorted that his order for the exercise to be called off was taken in consultation with some stakeholders and respected persons in the society.

It is on the back of this that Senyo Hosi has commended the President for exhibiting a rare quality of great leaders, which is the ability to listen.

“A key attribute of a great leader is the ability to listen. Thank you Mr. President,” the CEO of Chamber of Bulk Oil Distributors wrote on his Facebook wall, sighted by ABC News.

The Referendum was to amend the law, Article 55(3) to enable Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) and unit committee members to be elected along political party lines.

The provision can only be amended through a Referendum which per Article 290(4) of the 1992 constitution, can be approved when at least 40% of persons entitled to vote, vote at the Referendum and at least 75% of the persons who vote cast their ballot, vote in favour of passing the bill.
