- Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko has joined calls for the dismissal of the Upper West regional coordinator of NADMO over expired food gaffe
- Vice President and NADMO have come under massive public backlash after he distributed food items including expired ones to flood victims
Gabby Otchere-Darko is suggesting the Upper West Regional Coordinator of the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) must be dismissed for the gaffe which many believed embarrassed the vice president.
According the founder of the Danquah Institute (DI), anyone who serves expired food to flood victims and embarrasses the vice president in the process must also be shown the door.
He opined that for the NADMO boss in the Upper West Region to supervise the distribution of expired relief goods to flood victims, he must also go.
“When you serve flood victims expired goods, your job also deserves to expire. You don’t treat victims and the Veep this way.”
The Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and NADMO have come under massive public backlash after he distributed food items including expired ones to flood victims in Wa in the Upper West region last weekend.
The donation came after weeks of intense media reports of a seeming government neglect of the victims, scores of whom, had been displaced by the flood as a result of the spillage of the Bagre Dam.
The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Upper West Region was the first to raise the alarm about the expired food items that were distributed following devastating floods.
Meanwhile, NADMO, in a statement, took full responsibility for distributing the expired goods saying it was a mistake and assured the general public that no such incident will recur in the future.
