THE DISTRICT Chief Executive (DCE) for Ahafo Ano South in the Ashanti Region, Gabriel Barima, who was sacked for angrily chiding health workers in his district for a comment made by an unidentified person, has been reinstated.
The DCE, who rose to fame on the back of the infamous ‘Who said tweaa?’ refrain, was re-instated following calls by some National Democratic Congress (NDC) party executives, including the General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia.
Johnson Asiedu Nketiah in a statement, said the apparent unapologetic interview which cost the DCE his job, was not an interview, but rather a secretly recorded conversation which was leaked to the media.
Even though Mr. Barima, according to a DAILY GUIDE source, was yet to receive a letter confirming his reinstatement, he had been informed about the decision by the Brong-Ahafo Regional Minister who was acting in Mr. ‘Tweaa’s stead.
The DCE was sacked from office a day after granting a media interview in which he asserted that he had no remorse over his storming out of a public function in anger.
Gabriel Barima, months ago, was caught on video in tantrums and walking out on people, including some government officials and traditional rulers, at a public function in reaction to a comment made by someone in the audience who was said to have used the derogatory word ‘tweaa’ when the DCE was delivering a speech.
The Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development reprimanded him and asked him to apologise for his offensive conduct.
In spite of Barima’s issuance of a written and verbal apology for his widely condemned behavior which earned him a pardon from government he (Barima) bounced back, laying claim to royalties from people deriding him with the word ‘tweaa.’
