The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Savannah Region has removed its constituency chairmen for Salaga South and Daboya-Mankarigu of their positions.
The NDC in a letter disclosed that Haruna Salifu and Alhaji Mohammed Mutala as NDC chairmen for Salaga South and Daboya-Mankarigu respectively are no longer officers of the party.
The letter was signed by the Savannah Regional Secretary of the NDC, Salisu Be-Awuribe.
He copied the National Chairman of the party, its General Secretary and the Daboya-Mankarigu constituency Secretary.
Six other constituency executives have also been sacked for engaging in acts said to have contravened the party’s constitution.
“Adverse findings were found against them by the Regional Disciplinary Committee to the effect that some of their actions in the constituency contravened some sections of Article 48 (8) of the party constitution.”
“Consequently, in the exercise of the powers vested in the Regional Executive Committee of the party as per Article 48 (9) of the Constitution, the Regional Executive Committee at its meeting on the 7th of October 2021, resolved to relieve the above-named officers of their positions they once held in the Salaga South Constituency Executive Committee with immediate effect.”
“The former Chairman, Mr. Haruna Salifu and former Organiser, Mr. Murtala Falalu have been barred from holding any Executive Position within the party for two years and one and a half years respectively while the former Communications Officer, Mr. Abubakari Abu Omega, former Youth Organiser, Muazu Mamuda, and former Women Organiser, Madam Haruna Fuleraare also barred from holding executive positions in the party for a year each,” one of the letters stated.
In all, five executives including the constituency organiser and women organiser were sacked in the Salaga South constituency while two others were sacked in the Daboya-Mankargu constituency.
The party had suspended the officers earlier this year following a complaint filed by some members of the party after the 2020 elections for various breaches.
