Constituency Executives of the New Patriotic Party in Bongo have rubbished accusations of seeking to remove their District Chief Executive as leveled against them by Wilson Dabuo, a member of the party.
Wilson Dabuo, a member of the Communications Team of the party in a social media post lashed out at the Bongo Constituency Executives over what he says are attempts to get Rita Atanga, the District Chief Executive sacked.
He further accused a former District Chief Executive for the area Peter Ayinbisa of masterminding the schemes to remove the current DCE.
The Bongo Constituency Executives in a statement responding to the claims said though they visited the office of the Minister for Local Government and Rural Development to report the misconduct of the DCE after several failed attempts to meet her to resolve outstanding issues, there has never been a request on their part for her to be removed from office.
“It is of public knowledge that, the Bongo Constituency Executives disagreed with certain decisions taken by the District Chief Executive which does not engender trust and unity among the rank and file of the Constituency. Several efforts to have such issues resolved at the constituency level proved futile. Subsequently, such issues were escalated to the regional level by the Constituency Executives in our bid to address such problems between us and the Hon DCE. As much as the Regional Executives together with the Hon Regional Minister tried in resolving the issues, same remained largely unresolved to the extent that, the Constituency Executives cannot have a meeting without armed thugs from the Hon DCE disrupting them,” the statement said.
They added that “The claim by Wilson that, the Constituency Executives are seeking the removal of the Hon. DCE only demonstrates his character of spewing out lies mostly driven by motives other than genuineness. The Constituency Executives have always maintained that, they prefer the path of working peacefully with the DCE for the good of the Party in the Constituency to her dismissal. For want of a better word, the Constituency Executives have NEVER asked for the DCE to be removed from her position”.
The Constituency Executives in the release signed by Secretary Johnson Ayikene Anaane asserted that “It is increasingly becoming clear that, Wilson Dabuo is an imposter with an unbridled ego who is always ready to throw tantrums at any person and anywhere once few cowries are thrown at him. We are aware of his love for money and the use of his persona as a vehicle to denigrate others at any beck and call, however, the extent at which he goes about it nowadays is a disgrace to the youth and the Institution in which he is currently working under”.
