Eleven constituency executives for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in Garu, led by the party’s chairman, Dan Michael Abugri, have petitioned the President to remove Osman Musah, the current DCE, from office.
The executives argue that the actions of the DCE have not been in the interest of the party or the district. Left unchecked, the fortunes of the party in Garu would be greatly affected, the group argued.
In a statement sighted by this website, the executives called the DCE, Osman Musah, a threat to the party.
“We therefore petition your good office to relieve the DCE of Garu, Hon. Musah Osman, from office with immediate effect. This will save the image of the party and district from further dwindling. We have wholeheartedly supported Hon. Musah Osman ever since his appointment as DCE for Garu in 2021. The sole motive was to ensure the development of the district and absolute peace and harmony to the party so as to wrestle power from the NDC party in the constituency.”
“On the contrary, the repeated transgressions of Hon. Musah Osman are now a threat to Garu District and the survival of the party as a whole. The following are the issues we are confronted with from our DCE.”
The party executives explained that the DCE has failed to work with party structures. They also blamed him for a high attrition rate at the Assembly. They said the DCE had failed to pay contractors and had also incited some people against the party, particularly after losing the NPP primaries.
The DCE is yet to respond to the allegations.
Meanwhile, the DCEs for Bawku West and Bolgatanga East District have been removed from office.
