With the creation of new Regions, there seem to be adjustment and jostling for offices beween the the District/ Municipal Assemblies where the capitals are located and the new Regional Coordinating Councils that have started operating.
A typical example is the case of Damongo, capital of the Savannah Region where the Savannah Regional Minister is currently occupying the plush office of the West Gonja District Chief Executive (DCE) making the DCE officeless and operating from his official vehicle.
It would be recalled that President Nana Akufo- Addo visited Damongo last month during his tour of the newly created regions to cut sods for the construction of offices of the Regional Coordinating Councils but so so far work has not started.
This has raised the anxiety of the people of the West Gonja District who kept asking where their DCE’s office is located.
While many think the DCE is content with the situation in order to outwit the numerous party members who visit his office on daily basis for favours others think he might not be happy with the situation especially if the Regional Minister decides to use his office.
Bole based Nkilgi Fm spoke to the DCE for West Gonja Hon Muazu Jebreel Jegede and he said the West Gonja District Assembly has about fifteen (15) offices but they have released about five (5) to the Savannah Regional Minister including his own office. He said he has a small office at the West Gonja District Assembly but if any person who visits the Assembly do not ask they cannot show the person where it is.
He said he is available and has not moved anywhere.
