Incontrovertible information available to radiotamale.com has confirmed the suspension of about five regional officers from the opposition National Democratic Congress in the Northern region indefinitely, over alleged illegal distribution of Ramadan sugar without the knowledge of the regional party chairman, Ibrahim Mobila.
Some of the officials who were handed over their suspension letters broke the news to Radio Tamale’s Robicon Mornahson explaining that, the Regional secretary of the party, Mohammed Abdul Salam read out the reasons behind their suspension at an executive meeting last Friday May 1, 2020 at the parties regional office in Tamale.
However speaking to an executive member of the party in the region (name withheld), disclosed that, the meeting which was held at the party’s regional office with all executives both elected and appointed present except the first vice Chairman, Alhaji Hassan Rufai Ahmed Veilim who is among the affected officers in the suspension, the directive is with immediate effect.
The said officers in this decision are; Communication officer of the party, Abdul Muhmin Alhassan (General Amin) and his Deputy, Hardi Paghazaa, first vice chairman Alhaji Hassan Rufai Ahmed Veilim and two other Tamale North constituency executives, Treasurer, Mr Inusah Salman Fariz and his Deputy Mohammed Mateen.
Some of the affected officers who acknowledge receipt of the letter form the party have however rubbish the decision by the chairman, sighting Article 46 (1) of the party’s constitution to back their reason.
Chairman wrote such a letter but is bogus, it has no use. Go to the party’s constitution and read article 46 (1), it says that if you are going to suspend any member from holding a position at any particular level, the executive committee at that particular level must carry it out, the officer said.
They were distributing sugar, so when they were doing the distribution they mentioned to me the chiefs that they were going to, and so i pleaded for some bags to be given to an old member of the party. So when i was going i called the parliamentary candidate so that we can go together to donate it, that was how i got into the issue, the officer said.
In a telephone interview with our reporter Umar Abdul Shakur, the NDC Northern region secretary, Mr Mohammed Abdul Salam denied any comments on the matter but indicated that the matter was not for the Media.
