Daniel Awuure Nyaaba, Assemblyman for the Bongo Soe-Awukabiisi Electoral Area in the Upper East Region’s Bongo District, is particularly worried that the election of a presiding member for the Bongo District Assembly will continue to fall short until Rita Atanga, the DCE, and other key players within the Assembly structure accept a crucial proposal put forth by elected assemblymen.
Speaking on the Day Break Upper East Show with Mark Kwasi Ahumah Smith, Mr. Nyaaba explained that the proposal by the elected assembly members to have one of the elected assembly members considered as presiding member has been continually neglected, the reason why the Assembly continued to fail to elect a PM.
“I don’t think [we will be able to elect a PM when we meet]. For the past years, anytime we are to elect a presiding member, it has only been the government appointees. This time round, we want an elected member to be a presiding member for us. The one the DCE is coming with, he is not an elected member. He is a government appointee.”
“I do not think we are ready to consider to let any government appointee to come in. That is my opinion,” he stressed.
It would be recalled that attempts to elect a PM for the Assembly caused some level of commotion within the assembly.
