“Who are they to say I should resign” – Talensi DCE squares up against TAMCI after calls for resignation

The District Chief Executive (DCE) for Talensi, Thomas Duanab, has vehemently disputed calls for his resignation by the Talensi Mining Communities Initiative (TAMCI).

According to Duanab, the demand for his resignation reflects a lack of understanding of the intricate challenges faced by local authorities.

“They are calling for my resignation, but are they the people who brought me here or what? Who are they to say I should resign? In 2019, military personnel went there, was it the DCE who sent them there? Didn’t they chase the miners? Who are they? Is it now that they are thinking of Talensi? They don’t appreciate the workings of governance; they don’t. If they did, they would not be speaking like that.”

The group, cited concerns over Mr. Duanab’s alleged inability to uphold peace and ensure the safety of miners following a recent tragic incident where a level 300 student at the University of Cape Coast, identified as Bright, was fatally shot by military operatives, and four others were wounded.

However, speaking on A1 Radio, Mr. Duanab defended his position, casting doubt on TAMCI’s credibility and accusing them of disregarding the complexities of governance and harboring selfish interests.

“On one length, they said it was REGSEC, and on the other, they say DEGSEC that led the operation. Do they think I have jurisdiction over the region or what? An operation went wrong, a life has been lost, regrettably, but let nobody come out and think that he is a better sympathizer than the other.”

He emphasized his commitment to peacekeeping efforts and maintaining stability within the mining communities.

Mr. Duanab further criticized TAMCI’s motives, alleging that their actions are driven by personal greed and selfish ambitions rather than genuine concerns for the welfare of the community.
