A group of NPP members have warned President Nana Addo Danqua Akuffo Addo to as a matter of urgency stop involving and considering chiefs in his quest to select Municipal and District Chief Executives.
According to the angry group, they see it as one of the key reasons why President Nana Addo is finding it difficult to select MMDCES.
They therefore warn the President to desist from involving chiefs, especially those who come in with their nephews and or their parochial interests to beg for some unknown persons in the party to made as MMDCES.
They said most of these chiefs did nothing either on the grounds of monetary or physical aspects to contribute for the victory of the party.
According to the Northern Communicaters Association members of the NPP party, it’s very worrying how chiefs are allowed to interfere in the selection decision making it very difficult for the President to quickly provide his representatives for the various assemblies.
“We are not against the chiefs, but we pleading with them to stay off. Their interference has become too much. We see most of them going to beg for incompetent and unknown persons in the party to be made assembly heads which is not fair.
In fact, they’re giving the president tough time and it’s high time they desisted”. They said.
Chairman of the association, Alhaji Mohammed Gawo aka Alhaji Gawo who spoke to this reporter said members would have to advise themselves should the president fail to do the needful.
“We are tired of seeing how chiefs who were not part of our campaigns, interfere in the President’s decision to select MMDCES.
How can a chief just hold someone’s hand, go to the President and begin to beg for the person to be made a DCE or MCE?”. He quizzed.
He said even though chiefs can play parts in the decision, but the rate at which some chiefs are doing it as a personal business is worrying, hence the need for the President to exclude them and move on.
