Upper East Regional Minister, Alhaji Limuna Mohammed-Muniru has said that previous meetings held by the Kasena-Nakana West District assembly where voting took place to reject earlier nominees for DCE of the area were not illegal as argued by some members of the assembly whose appointments he revoked.

The government-appointed assembly members for the kasena-nankana west district on Wednesday told A1 News that the regional minister had accused them of disregarding the president when they rejected his nominee, George Nonterah for the position of DCE of the area over ten day ago.

According to them, the minister then proceeded to serve them letters, revoking their appointments as assembly members with effect from 16th  August 2013. They then argued that the letter invalidates previous assembly meetings where voting took place to reject the previous DCE nominee.

Kopanamo James Kojo, the Kasena-Nankana west constituency chairman of the NDC and one of the government-appointed assembly members who spoke on behalf the aggrieved government appointees said the minister had wrongly interfered assembly business. He said the minster’s action was unacceptable.

However, Upper East Regional Minister, Alhaji Limuna Mohammed-Muniru has debunked the argument of the revoked government appointees. He said since communication is a two-way process, the assembly members were still legally doing their duty, once they had not received any communication regarding the revocation of their appointments.

Alhaji Muniru also argued that it was the prerogative of the President to revoke the appointment of any appointed assembly member, if he (the president) felt the assembly members were not serving his interest.
