Hundreds of people including National Democratic Congress (NDC) executives from the Abura-Asebu-Kwamankese (AAK) District of the Central Region on Friday trooped to the Abura Dunkwa Township amidst heavy jubilation over the dismissal of their arrogant District Chief Executive (DCE) of the area, Madam Aba Edusah.
The 3-hour jubilation was led by the AAK NDC executives and some party sympathizers who were spotted dressed in their party attire jubilating on the principal streets of Abura Dunkwa.
Madam Aba Edusah, who has received lots of negative publications since she was appointed DCE of the area, was sacked from office on Thursday according to a release issued from the office of the President and signed by the Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, Joseph Yieleh Chireh.
Although no reason was given for her dismissal, the Central regional minister, Comfort Ama Benyiwa Doe, has been asked to take on the additional responsibility until a new DCE is appointed.
The jubilation, which started at 7am, ended abruptly when one of the people blocked the road to prevent vehicles from entering the town.
In an interview, some of the party executives said the jubilation was in appreciation of the President’s decision to sack the DCE since her actions in the district had caused the party to lose more assembly seats to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the just ended district assembly elections.
They described the recent assembly election as a big blow for the NDC, adding that if their executives did not come together to find effective strategies to curb their problems, the party would be doomed forever.
DAILY GUIDE gathered that initially, Madam Aba Edusah said she had not received any letter from the Presidency and would continue to work as the DCE for the area.
The jubilant executives have however appealed to the President to appoint a DCE who could develop the area as well as ensure unity and stability in the party.
DAILY GUIDE learnt that Madam Edusah, who was advised by Ama Benyiwa Doe about two month ago to resign to avoid any embarrassment of being fired, snubbed the minister.
Investigations further revealed that Madam Benyiwa Doe would have worked out another position for Madam Edusah if the DCE had earlier on taken her advice.
It would be recalled that DAILY GUIDE has for some time now made several publications concerning the tension between Madam Aba Edusah and the people and chiefs in her area, which eventually led to a demonstration against her.
During the demonstration, stones and sachet water were allegedly hurled at the embattled DCE. During the melee, journalists and passersby were not spared as they received some of the baptism of water and stones.
