Constituency chairmen for Salaga South and Daboya-Mankarigu and several other constituency executives have been stripped of their positions by the Regional Executive Committee of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Savannah Region for acts believed to be inimical to the party's constitution.
The affected constituency chairmen are Haruna Salifu for Salaga South and Alhaji Mohammed Mutarla for Daboya-Mankarigu constituency.
The rest of the affected persons include Mr. Abubakari Abu Omega ( Communications Officer ), madam Haruna Fulera ( Women Organizer ), Mr. Mutarla Falalu ( Organizer ) and Mr. Muazu Mamuda ( Youth Organizer ) all in the Salaga South constituency and one other Mr. Otchullo Damba ( Co-opted executive ) in the Daboya-Mankarigu constituency.
The action against them was contained in a letter signed by the Regional Secretary of the party, Lawyer Sualisu Biawurbi dated October 14, 2021 and copied to the National Chairman of the party, its General Secretary and the constituency Secretary for Daboya-Mankarigu.
They have since been barred from holding positions within the party ranging from one (1) to two (2) years each respectively.
"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 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 party revealed in the letter.
The letter emphasised, "The former chairman, Mr. Haruna Salifu and former organizer, Mr. Mutarla Falalu have been barred from holding any executive position within the party for two years and one and half years respectively while the former communications officer Abubabari Abu Omega, former Youth organizer, Muazu Mamuda, and former women organizer, madam Haruna Fulera are barred from holding executive positions in the party for a year each.
" 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 (9) of the Constitution."
The executives were earlier this year suspended following an official complaint lodged by members of the party immediately after the 2020 general elections for various anti-party behaviours.
It is however, presently unclear what the affected executives did to warrant the whip cracked on them.
