The DCE for Garu, Musah Osman, has been fired by President Nana Akufo Addo. Haruna Ali has been nominated to replace him.

This was contained in a statement signed by the outgoing Minister for Local Government and Decentralization.

“H.E. the President in accordance with Article 243 (1) of the 1992 Constitution and Section 20 (1) of the Local Governance Act, 2016 (Act 936) has nominated Haruna Ali as District Chief Executive for Garu District in the Upper East Region, pending his approval by the Assembly. In view of the above, you are kindly requested to liaise with the Regional Electoral Commission to conduct the confirmation process of the nominated Chief Executive.”

It would be recalled that the DCE came under strong criticism from members of his own party.

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.”
