Talensi District Chief Executive dismisses common fund debt rumors

The District Chief Executive (DCE) for Talensi, Thomas Dauna Wuni, has unequivocally dispelled claims suggesting that the government owes districts their common funds.

The DCE clarified that the last payment was made in December, and several districts have already started receiving their first quarter allocations for the District Common Fund (DCF) this year.

His comment came as a response to a message from an NDC communicator, Solomon TT. B from the Talensi Constituency, indicating that the government has not paid districts their common funds.

The communicator said in his message, “What was the last time he received his share of the District Common Fund? The government owes the districts over 4 quarters. If not bankruptcy, then what is it?”

But the DCE, who was speaking on A1 Radio, explained that the communicator’s message was not only misleading but lacked the substance of his claims.

He stated, “The public must be well-informed, and I want to assure everyone that the government is committed to fulfilling its financial obligations to the districts. The last payment was made in December 2023. And as I speak, some districts have begun receiving the first quarter of their DCF. So, what is he talking about?”

He then emphasized the importance of accurate information dissemination, urging the public to rely on official channels for updates on matters related to district common funding.

He further advised members of the opposition NDC to always verify how they often disseminate information without proper verification.

He therefore explained further that sometimes the delay in the distribution of funds could not be indicative of any financial mismanagement but rather of procedural timelines and bureaucratic processes.
