Kwaebibirim NDC against moves to replace DCE

Kade, May 21, GNA - National Democratic Congress (NDC) Executives in Kade and Akwatia constituencies, as well as the youth of the party in the two constituencies, have condemned moves by some Regional executives to have the Kwaebibirim District Chief Executive (DCE), Mr Emmanuel R.A Osae, replaced.
They noted that, even though Mr Osae was still at post and not removed from office, the regional vetting committee of the NDC in Koforidua on March 11 vetted a number of persons for his position.
They expressed their disappointment at the vetting in a massive demonstration at Kade at the weekend and described the move as illegal in a statement issued to the press.
The demonstrators carrying placards, some of which read 'No Osae no vote', and 'Does Evelyn Korang own the party in the District?' declared total support for Mr Osae.
They marched through the principal streets of Kade, and ended up at the party office where they presented a copy of a petition meant for the NDC regional executive to the Kade constituency chairman, Alhaji Mohammed Shido.
Madam Korang is the NDC regional women's organizer who they accused of masterminding the moves to have the incumbent DCE removed.
The demonstrators called on the party to sanction all members of the vetting committee attempting to usurp the power and authority of the President through their illegal actions.
They affirmed their total support for the DCE, a true citizen of the district with both parents from the area, and acknowledge his good works for both the NDC and the district.
They explained that since his appointment as DCE, Mr Osae had succeeded in unifying the district bringing the two constituencies of Akwatia and Kade closer in building the party in the district.
'It is worth noting the many development projects he had embarked upon like electricity, water, roads and many others within his short stay in office as DCE'.
The group cautioned all those who for their selfish interests continued to undermine the DCE and was going about spreading false information about him to desist from such 'wicked activities'.
They said they would continue to support the DCE in his good work in ensuring that the NDC grew stronger in the Kwaebibirim District.
The GNA has learnt that five persons from the Kade constituency were vetted for the position of Kwaebibirim DCE in Koforidua on May 11.
Their names were given as Madam Faustina Addo (who contested the parliamentary election in 2000 on the ticket of the NDC but lost), Mr Anthony Obeng Afrani, Teacher Tinkorang, Mr Emmanuel Ampofo and Mr Agyei Yeboah.
