-Northern Regional Chairman of the NPP has threatened to resign from the party if the Regional minister remains at post
-His intention comes on the backdrop of claims that the regional minister was stalling the confirmation of MMDCE’s in the region
-He added that he had forwarded letters to this effect to the president to take action
The Northern Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr. Daniel Bugri Naabu has issued a threat to the party to vacate his post if actions are not taken to sack the Regional Minister, Salifu Saeed.
According to the Chairman, the Regional Minsiter, together with his deputy are undoing the good work of the NPP in the region. He added that they were working to delay the confirmation of MMDCE’s that have been nominated to the region by the president.
His outburst comes on the heels of the failure of the Assembly members of Bunprugu-Yunyoo to confirm the nomination of J. K Alhassan who is believed to be the nephew of the Regional Chairman. The Assembly members have argued that J. K Alhassan is a major security threat to the peace of the area which has resulted in him not being confirmed even after his second nomination.
However, Mr. Daniel Bugri Naabu believes that the deputy regional minister, who is also a Member of Parliament is only sabotaging J. K Alhassan because of the threat he stands to become to his political aspirations.
Mr. Naabu said he had forwarded more than one letter to the president to report the matter to him and requested that the minister be removed from his position immediately. He added that if the minister remained at post, it was going to cause the NPP dearly because his actions would result in the party losing some places they struggled to win in the last election.
He said that the youth of the region were looking for the regional minister but he was nowhere to be found. He then questioned how a regional minister would be absent from the place he was supposed to control.
He said he would soon come to Accra to meet the president on the matter.
