NDC reacts to NPP’s press conference on the ongoing political feud in the Western North Region

0

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) branch in the newly created region – Western North has reacted to the press conference held by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) on 24th June, 2019 and some proportions were made by NPP against their party (NDC) concerning the ongoing feud between the Regional Minister and his Deputy in the Western North Region. 

Below is a copy of NDC’s response to NPP’s media brief;

WESTERN NORTH REGIONAL SECRETARIAT- NDC
PRESS RELEASE
THE WESTERN NORTH NPP’S ATTEMPT TO TRIVIALIZE THE DISGUSTING HAPPENINGS BETWEEN THE
REGIONAL MINISTER AND HIS DEPUTY VERY PATHETIC AND SHAMEFUL.
Ideally the press briefing by the NPP yesterday, 24th June,2019 doesn’t merit a response from the NDC.
However, we are responding due to certain mischievous propositions been made by the NPP against the
NDC and some high ranking personalities as well.
As indicated earlier, the press statement was characterized by errors and made no logical meaning. It
was indeed a complete waste of time. The NPP during their introductory remarks made by their
Regional Communication Director, stated plainly that the press briefing or whatsoever isn’t a response
to the NDC’s press conference held on Friday 21st June, 2019. Interestingly, their statement
contravened what their Communication Director said.
In the said statement, the NPP sought to equalize the high level of incompetence been exhibited by their
clueless and power struggling appointees in the region to some former appointees in the erstwhile
Mahama administration. They again opined that we had no reason (s) for calling for the dismissal of the
Western North Regional Minister and his deputy. They termed this serious situation which hampers and
stagnate development as mere administrative issues.
How can the following be termed as mere administrative issues;
 A Deputy Regional Minister commanding four vehicles belonging to the RCC to work in his
Akontombra constituency during the Easter break without recourse to his boss. This amount to
abuse of office and it is unlawful. He must be investigated rather than treating it as mere
administrative issue.
 A Deputy Regional Minister causing distraction at will at meetings certainly can’t be termed as
mere administrative issues.
 Giving counter instructions on security matters which has the tendency of destabilizing our
region can’t be termed as mere administrative issues.
 The selfishness of the Deputy Regional Minister by employing five drivers out of the six required
from his constituency isn’t just a mere administrative issues.
 The Deputy Regional Minister instigating the MMDCEs against his boss isn’t just a mere
administrative issue but one which adversely can affect the fortunes of the region in terms of
development.
It is however unfortunate that the NPP trying to bring to the attention of the public as to efforts been
made by the their party, they tend to expose their Regional Chairman as one of not being able to resolve
issues with Nananom concerning the Nananom and the Regional Minister.
Culminating all these, one can say without any shred of doubt that the NPP themselves do not
understand the magnitude of the issues. This is due to their lack of understanding and appreciation to
issues of national interest. They are simply incompetent.
For the NPP to even cite an issue which occurred between two Members of Parliament who are not in
charge of developing a region nor been paid as government appointees is simply pathetic. The shameful
attitude been depicted by both appointees must be condemned rather than been justified.
Thankfully enough, the NPP admitted in full that the NDC is right about the current happenings between
the two incompetent government appointees. If the NPP has admitted this, then common sense should
tell them we have justifiable reasons for calling for the dismissal of both the Regional Minister and his
deputy.
Thank you.
SAM JEROME – REGIONAL COMMUNICATION OFFICER, NDC – WESTERN NORTH REGION.
