The DCE for Garu, Osman Musah, is alleged to report to work only at night. Additionally, the DCE has been accused of refusing to respond to official calls from staff of the Assembly. These allegations have been leveled against the DCE by the constituency executives.
This was contained in a letter signed by Dan Michael Abugri, the NPP Constituency Chairman for Garu.
“All the NDA boreholes drilled by him are yet to be completed, despite the rumors that he has been paid fully. Using about twenty-six (26) electric poles to power only his house in the entire community has created a lot of problems in the community. Holding secret meetings with some NPP members against the newly elected Parliamentary Candidate. Refusing to distribute school furniture that came into the Assembly nearly one year ago. Going to the office to work only at night since he lost the primaries. Not answering calls that are official from the Assembly staff since he lost the primaries. Hoarding 2020 election materials such as sewing machines, hair dryers, bicycles, and so on. These materials were then used by the DCE during the just-ended parliamentary primaries to amass votes for himself from the delegates,” portions of the statement read.
Based on these reasons, the constituency executives have petitioned the president to demand the firing of the DCE.
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…” the statement read.
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.
