The disappointing performance of some district chief executives in the December 7 parliamentary election is having a heavy toll on administrative work of their assemblies in the Northern Region, according to The Ghanaian Times.
None of the six DCEs who contested the December 7 parliamentary election was able to win a seat.
Administrative work at the assemblies has come to a halt as the affected DCEs have abandoned their posts.
When the Times visited Tolon/Kunbumgu district office last Wednesday, there was not a single worker at post. So was the situation at Walewale, where the office was like a cemetery, without a single living soul.
The story was no different at Wulensi where the offices of the assembly were said to have been locked up throughout last week.
At Karaga, a reliable source told the Times that most of the assembly workers were afraid to go to work ostensibly unable to stand the discomfort of facing their bosses who have lost the election.
They included Baba Wahab of Karaga District; Mohammed Amin Anta of Tamale Metropolis and Yakubu Zakaria of Central Gonja.
The rest are Thomas Donor Ogaja, for Nanumba South, Sulemana Nabila for West Mamprusi and Wahab Yuhuyini Wumbei for Tolon-Kunbumgu.
