Dr Nyaho Nyaho Tamakloe has accused President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo over what he calls an “undemocratic” election of Metropolitan Municipal, District Chief Executives (MMDCEs).
“The experience of violence where the Presiding Member of the Assembly was assaulted, and the Achiase District, was not exempted from this bloody act.
An assembly member of this district was also assaulted during the confirmation of the DCE nominee for that District. Ghana as a country cannot continue like this under this NPP government led by Nana Akufo-Addo.
This indicates how unpopular and disappointing the people of this country are against the undemocratic moves of this government. Many of these actions happened in areas where the old nominees were reappointed for the second term.”
“Most reasons given by the assembly members for rejecting the nominees is lack of development in their localities. Lack of good human relations on the part of the DCEs and many other reasons.
The Chief Executives are indeed suffering from the deeds of their appointees, who have starved the assemblies of their Common Funds for four quarters and introducing the capping system to take part of the money meant for the development of their localities.”
“I call on the government, the Ghana Police Service led by the IGP, and the Parliament of Ghana to as a matter of urgency effect investigations into these happenings in various assemblies in order to bring the perpetrators of these undemocratic actions to book, the NPP stalwart added”.
