Sawla NDC Youth On War Path Against Renomination Of DCE


The NDC Youth of Sawla-Tuna-Kalba District who on the war path over the President Mahama’s re-appointment of Isaac Mumuni Dramani as the DCE for Sawla-Tuna-Kalba District for another four years. They held a press conference at Sawla to demand that Isaac Mumuni Dramani should not be retained for gross incompetence, looting and sharing, implementation of operation ‘scratch my back, I scratch your back’, pursuance of conflicts of interests and display of family authority over the constitution of the party and that of the Ghana.

According to the Youth the bad attitude, character and poor management of the District Assembly by the DCE has dwindled their support base and turning away a large chunk of their party-fateful and floating voters and supporters to other parties.

Speaking on behalf of the youth Kpeafaa Stephen who doubles as the GYEEDA Co-ordinator for the District said, Isaac Mumuni Dramani has used family ties with the President as a weapon to scare members of the party and has on numerous occasions indicated unequivocally certain government apparatus cannot apply to him because he, Dramani is a bother to the President.

According to the youth, the DCE has become short sighted with no vision, mission and foresight and that it is not only the people who are suffering under this man but also the staff of the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba district assembly where he is also employing his divide and rule tactics to loot and share.

The Youth explained that the party has asked people to apply for the post of DCE and nine people applied including the DCE to the party’s constituency Chairman and regional executives but none of the applicants was called for any interview but the Isaac Mumuni Dramani’s name was mentioned as the DCE thus imposing him “against the sovereign will of the people”.

They said for the sake of peace and unity within the party and the entire District, the President should kindly relocate Dramani Mumumi Isaac to a different post as he did to Hon. Seidu Abudu Sampson of Bole. They explained that their party is losing grounds in Sawla-Tuna-Kalba.

On the DCE’s confirmation, the youth said Issac Dramani Mumuni has made the Presiding Member to write a confirmation letter to the assembly members when there is no letter from the President that shows he has been nominated because the name mentioned is Mohammed Dramani and not Mumunu Dramani Isaac.

The new Constituency Chairman, Mr Siibu Hudu who is in support of the actions of the Youth said the Regional Chairman Sofo Azorka told him to get applications from interested party members for shotlist and interviews at Tamale because the DCE’s term of office elapsed in October 2014 and he was served with a letter asking him to handover to the District coordinating director. He said nine people applied and the list was submitted to party at the Regional level. While the process was going on one Mohammed Dramani’s name was mentioned on Radio as the renominated DCE making the some members and youth angry. He said they do not know any Mohammed Dramani and that the name of the DCE whose term of office has expired is Isaac Mumuni Dramani. He said the Regional Executive denied presenting any name to the President.
