In what appears to be a reaction to the call by The Concern New Patriotic Parry (NPP) Youth of Mion for the removal from office of the District Chief Executive (DCE) for the area, another group calling itself Committed NPP Youth has jumped to the defence of Hon Mohammed Hashim.
In a press release sighted by this portal, the Committed NPP Youth, views the call for the sack of the Dean of Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) in the Northern Region as hugely misplaced since he has performed creditably as DCE for Mion in the areas of education, health, water and sanitation, security and rural electrification and made the party attractive for all.
According to the group, the action by the Concern NPP Youth of Mion was orchestrated by some invisible hands within the Constituency Executive set up and the Regional Secretary of the NPP Alhaji Alhassan Sibdow. It must be stated that when this portal contacted Alhaji Sibdoo he denied any involvement in the issues of Mion.
They said that any attempt at this time to show the DCE the exit will jeopardize the chances of the NPP to snatch the seat from the opposition National Democratic Congress.
The group is therefore, calling on Musah Abdul Aziz Ayaba, the NPP Parliamentary Candidate for Mion Constituency to engage well with the DCE and Constituency Chairman for a harmonious working relationship In the interest of the party.
They described the issues raised by the Concern NPP Youth as “mere unsubstantiated lies only calculated to discredit our very competent Hon DCE”
Here is the full statement
PRESS RELEASE BY COMMITTED NPP YOUTH IN MION CONSTITUENCY
Ladies and Gentlemen of the press, Good morning and thank you for responding to our invitation for this very crucial press conference. We the committed supporters of NPP in the Mion Constituency wish to draw the attention of the general public to the misinformation and serious attempt by very few selfish individual to bring our party and the name of our hard working DCE to disrepute. We find this conduct as unacceptable and call on the leadership of our party and Government to act fast and investigate these development and bring the few selfish people to order.
It is indeed not right at this moment of our preparation for the election 2020 as a constituency to be busily engage in this kind of unpatriotic and selfish interest. We sent a petition to the leadership of our party as our response to the earlier petition by the so called concern youth of NPP in Mion. The group is being used by selfish individual who do not have the party at heart, and are a pursuing personal vendetta against the DCE by engaging in this falsehood and misinformation to create a bad name for the DCE and ask for his removal.
Our DCE has worked very hard for the past 2 and half years. There is much evidence in the District that we have never seen this kind of Development both human and physical in our areas until Hon Alhaji Mohammed Hashim became our DCE. He achieved very huge development interventions within the short time in the areas of Education, Health, Water and Sanitation, Roads, Rural electrification and Security. Independence and honest mind, can bear witness to this fact.
We are therefore very surprise about the continues misconduct against our DCE and Constituency Chairman. We describe our brothers as enemies of our party who are burnt on sabotaging the chance we have this year towards winning the parliamentary seat. The good work of our Hon DCE is surely going to make very remarkable impact on our votes in many communities due to the interventions made by our DCE and our Government. To suggest that the DCE should be sack is to attempt to deny the party and its candidate the opportunity and the golden chance we have gained due to the good work of our DCE.
Our worry is the way in which the PC who will be the prime beneficiary of the unprecedented developmental work of Government and the DCE in the Mion District is keeping quiet and supporting the conduct of the selfish individual indirectly who are fighting the DCE for personal gains. We call on our Parliamentary Candidate to declare his stands in this ranging development. He has been advised by so many good minded people who have the party at heart to work closely with the DCE who has worked so much already towards winning the seat.
We love the party and therefore will not allow any selfish individual Parliamentary Candidate or DCE to do anything that will affect the fortunes of our party. We are not seeing the candidate and Constituency Chairman or DCE together in gathering, our checks from Chairman revealed that the Candidate does not involve him or the DCE in most of his activities. We wish to call on Hon Aziz Musah Ayaba to henceforth do everything with DCE and chairman to prove that we are working together for victory.
It is indeed very unfortunate that the efforts of his Royal highness the Mion Lana to bring peace unity and understanding among the people of Mion will be misrepresented by this selfish individuals. We know some this people among our Constituency Executives and the Acting Regional Secretary who is a native of Mion and contestant for DCE position with our DCE in 2017 are in cahoots. Why for example, is it that the complains are not about the competence and misconduct but mere unsubstantiated lies only calculated to discredit our very competent Hon DCE who is the Dean of all MMDCEs in the northern region and there is so much evidence to his outstanding approach to work and party business and unity
We will therefore not sit down and allow few selfish individual, both within and outside the District to spoil the bright chances of our party in Mion this year. Why will you call for the DCE to be sack at this time for no wrong doing if not for envy, jealousy, and selfish reasons, when this is rather the time that we need internal unity and the cooperation of every one to win the election
WE WISH THEREFORE TO WARN IN NO UNCERTIAN TERMS THAT, WE SHALL COME OUT IN OUR GREATER NUMBERS TO COUNTER DEMONSTRATE IN SUPPORT OF OUR VERY COMPETENT DCE WHO HAS A GREAT HISTORY OF SINGLE HANDEDLY FINANCED AND NATURED OUR PARTY IN MION CONSTITUENCY FOR THE LAST 8 YEARS WHEN THE PARTY WAS IN OPPOSITION. HIS CONCIOUSNESS AND CONCERN FOR THE PARTY LED HIM TO EMPLOY ALL 325 POLLING STATION EXECUTIVES AND OTHER PARTY SUPPORTERS AND ALSO BUILDING PARTY OFFICE IN THE CONSTITUENCY FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER.
This is why we stand strongly by our DCE and our party unity and will not allow few selfish individuals to drill the chances of the party in the District.
