Bugri Naabu stops Gushegu DCE confirmation

The Northern regional chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Daniel Bugri Naabu has called off indefinitely a process to confirm the District Chief Executive nominees for Gushegu West Mamprusi and Bunkprugu districts in the Northern Region.

The President on Friday nominated new District Chief Executives for Gushegu, West Mamprusi and Bunkprugu districts but since the announcement of the list of the new nominees in the northern region, there has been tension, acrimony and rioting especially in the West Mamprusi town of Walewale.

According to Bugri Naabu in the case of Gushegu, the Konkombas are threatening to attack facilities of the party because they feel cheated and deceived.

He claims the Konkombas feel cheated by the NPP as the initial plan was for them to support the party to win some parliamentary seats in the area in order to have some of their own appointed as DCEs in return.

“In Gushegu, Konkombas are threatening to attack our party facilities and destroy them because they feel deceived and cheated. It was an agreement [among] them and the Vice President and the regional chairman and even the President that if they should vote for the MP to win, the Konkombas would be appointed as DCE.

“But now they have realized they have been deceived, because the MP is the Deputy Minister for Tourism, Alhaji Tampuli is the Chief Executive Officer for the National Petroleum Authority, and Rita Tani is a Deputy [High Commissioner] to the United Kingdom, and just the DCE position for the Konkombas. They have been denied again and so there is tension brewing in the area.” He said.

Mr. Bugri Naabu says he sees as security threat and therefore has asked for a holdup onto the confirmation of the nominees of West Mamprusi and Gushegu until he further consult the President on the matter for an amicable resolution.
