The Savanna arm of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has sacked some constituency executives in the region including the constituency chairmen for Salaga South and Daboya-Mankarigu.
A letter dated Thursday, 14 October 2021, and signed by Regional Secretary Salisu Be-Awuribe, announced the fate of Haruna Salifu and Alhaji Mohammed Mutala.
“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”, the letter copied to the party’s National Chairman Samuel Ofosu Ampofo and General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia, said.
“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”, it added.
The party also expelled some other executives.
