A piece of deep-throat information from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Upper East Region indicates that the former District Chief Executive for Bongo, Peter Ayinbisa is seriously lobbying to be appointed as Communications Director of the party in the Upper East Region.
Mr. Ayinbisa contested the just-ended regional executive elections of the party for the position of Organizer but failed to win the position. He obtained 126 votes, while Charles Taleog Ndanbon a businessman secured 152 votes to be elected the next Organizer of the party. Mark Ayamga however managed to garner just 28 out of the total valid votes cast.
But grapevine information reaching A1radioonline.com indicates that Mr. Ayinbisa after his failed attempt to lead the party in the capacity of a Regional Organizer is seriously lobbying at the corridors of the party to be considered as the Regional Communications Director – a position many believes is a demotion to the 2020 Parliamentary Candidate of the party in Bongo.
The sources said a meeting was held recently to appoint regional executives for the party but it ended inconclusively because some of the regional executives think Mr. Ayinbisa who is a one-time constituency Chairman, DCE, and a parliamentary candidate is power-drunk, should not be considered for an appointment this time around.
To confirm what our sources have confided in us, a member of the party, Wilson Dabuo has posted on Facebook expressing his dismay that the former DCE who was rising in his political career will stand so low to be appointed as a Regional Communications Director.
“I thought with the 7 wonders of the Ancient World, none would have come in our time, but one is just on our hands. From DCE to Regional Communications Director, what an upside-down this could be? Ever seen a Chief/king without followers?”
Below is Mr. Dabuo’s full post.
