Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) have been employed to first consider New Patriotic Party (NPP) supporters for jobs and other appointments before any other person could be considered because it is their right considering their efforts towards the party’s victory.
Deputy Minister for Roads and Highways and Member of Parliament (MP) for Lawra Constituency of the Upper West Region, Anthony Abayifa Karbo who made the call, insists that it is non-negotiable and MMDCEs must abide by it.
“I want to employ the DCEs here, please, party first! People have worked, toiled and struggled for the party to come to power. This is the time for the party people to enjoy let us not negotiate that and make sure our party people get these opportunities”, he said while addressing NPP supporters during the Regional Delegates Conference at the weekend.
His comments were in reaction to concerns raised by a section of the youth that they have been denied jobs by some MMDCEs despite sacrificing for the party in the run-up to the 2016 election which effort paid off and resulted in the party’s victory.
But the lawmaker assured them they will be properly catered for as neglect is not associated with the NPP.
“Let us not forget the school feeding, our women they are here, they have been calling our DCEs, and All DCEs are under pressure over school feeding. Regional Chairmen are not are not having the peace of mind, General Secretary of the party is not having his peace of mind, MPs are not also having but rightly so they deserve it because they have worked for it”, he assured.
