There is growing tension in the ruling NPP in the Northern region following threats by the Regional Chairman Daniel Bugri Naabu to resign over allegations of sabotage.
Daniel Bugri Naabu is accusing the Northern Regional Minister, Salifu Saeed and his Deputy, Solomon Boar as the architects behind the rejection of some DCEs and has called on the President to relief them of their duties.
According to the controversial and firebrand politician, he has petitioned the President three times over the alleged conduct of the two but has received no response.
He added that he would not sit aloof and allow the two to undermine his authority and has threatened to resign if the President refuses to sack them.
Refering to the Regional Minister and his Deputy as corrupt, a visibly angry and disappointed Bugri Naabu told media men after Assembly Members failed to confirm the President’s nominee for the Position of District Chief Executive (DCE) for the Bunkprugu -Yunyoo district for the second time that he will step down if they are not sacked.
Mr Naabu who was disappointed at the entrenched position taken by some of the Assembly Members accused the Regional Minister and his Deputy of sabotaging the confirmation of nominees perceived to be loyal to him in a bid to topple him.
“The Regional Minister and his deputy are making my work difficult, very very difficult. I have reported it to the President; not one letter, more than about three letters. The regional minister and his deputy, they are destroying all NPP good job, all the wining we won, if we don’t take time, coming next time we may lose most of the places we won.
“I have told the president if he doesn’t take action I’m coming back to Accra after my work today. I’m not going to be doing a good job while some people are destroying it, and I have told the president to let him go and I don’t want to mince words.
“I told the president that these people the way they are in the region, they are destroying the region. For me if that is the case, I will come and with him in Accra, he will take action immediately”.
