THE YOUNG PATRIOTS,

TEMPANE CONSTITUENCY,

UPPER EAST REGION.

15TH DECEMBER, 2020.

THE PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF GHANA,

C/O THE CHIEF OF STAFF,

OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT,

JUBILEE HOUSE,

ACCRA,

GHANA.

His Excellency,

PETITION FOR THE REMOVAL FROM OFFICE, THE DISTRICT CHIEF EXECUTIVE FOR TEMPANE DISTRICT – HON. PAUL ABUGRI AZUMAH

The Youth Wing of our great NPP Party in Tempane District and Constituency collectively and unanimously wish to petition His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo (President of the Republic of Ghana) to remove Honorable Paul Abugri Azumah from office with immediate effect in order to curtail further intended actions of the youth in the Tempane District which may be detrimental to the party’s chances to take back the Parliamentary seat from NDC in 2024.

The Youth has already carried out Post-elections assessment of the issues that led to our inability to retain the seat in the 2020 elections in the Tempane Constituency.

The bases of this petition is largely reflective of our main findings that, the DCE since his appointment has continuously worked not to improve the fortunes of the Party on whose government, he had the opportunity to serve the good people of Tempane as a whole.

The Petitioners have extensively consulted and held a general Constituency meeting and these allegations are leveled against the DCE.

His last two years in office, he exhibited poor relationship with NPP supporters thereby making them to lose faith with the government and the party as well.

Traditional leaders definitely have influenced over their subjects and traditional jurisdictions in our culture. The DCE’s working relationships with the chiefs has been very appalling which soured the affection of these leaders with the government.

He failed to show his contributions to the 2020 election activities in both material and political activism to enhance the fortunes of our great party; his failure to attend important party meetings and rallies organized by various groups in the election season buttresses the point made above.

He did not campaign vigorously and refused to make definite political statements in favor of the Parliamentary candidate and the President on campaign grounds

His alleged involvement in the elections of Assembly Members to favor the NDC has manifested in the recent District level elections since the elected assembly members on the side of the NDC had an overwhelming majority. Invariably, these elected assembly members campaigned for the NDC party and the electorates heeded to their call and voted massively for the NDC party in the constituency

He is not accessible to the people in the District since he resides outside the District. This decision of his has obviously distanced him from the people and their concerns have been left unattended to by him. As it is common knowledge in the District that, Hon. Paul Abugri Azumah is not approachable by party sympathizers and people of the Tempane District.

In 2017, he incited a section of the Youth within the constituency to protest against the appointment of Honourable Asore Emmanuel Avoka as the DCE for then Garu – Tempane District. This incident led to the burning of posters of His Excellency Nana Akuffo Addo and Hon. Joseph Dindiok Kpemka. Since his selfish action, it has dampen the party’s morale in that particular enclave where the needless protestation took place.

Unfair distribution of opportunities such as Scholarships for tertiary students, youth employment, Common Fund disbursements among others. It is mind blowing to realize that through the DCE, about fifty (50) women who are not voters in the Tempane District were served the MASLOC loans meant for business women in the Tempane District. This issue immensely cost us votes. This same issue of serving outsiders manifested in the scholarships and youth employment opportunities.

Items and logistics meant for campaign that were under his watch were not released timely and wholly for the intended purpose. He failed to ensure with the party executives that logistics and items given by the party were effectively allocated to areas and individuals who needed them for smooth running of campaign in the constituency.

Lack of interest shown by him in defending and explaining government policies and projects in order to inform the general public in the District. That his unpatriotic conduct to the party gave room to the opponents to preach the gospel of lies to the constituents to diminish the chances of the party.

He was considered as an object of distractive politics and penetration against the party by the NDC for reasons best known to himself. This is traceable to the fact that he was spotted in a closed-door meeting with high profile NDC bigwigs at Bolgatanga. The agenda was to ensure that NPP does not win Tempane seat. It is interesting to notice that, the aftermath of the said “Nicodemus” meeting gave birth to the allegation that the Hon. DCE got his palms greased financially by the NDC to overturn the NPP’s victory mission in the constituency. Although he openly accepted that the NDC met him but he rejected the offer of money from the NDC bigwigs, we believe that he took the money because he did work for them. Evidence is that NPP woefully lost at Honorable DCE’s polling station.

In view of the above concerns raised by the youth of Tempane, we unanimously agreed and came into terms with the following conclusions;

  1. The DCE continuous stay in the office will further derail the fortunes of the party going forward
  2. The youth will cease to work for the party since leaders like him do not care about us.
  3. The party’s survival in the Tempane District depends on eliminating greedy politicians like him from the political club of leaders in our great party.
  4. The Youth has planned to initiate demonstrations including locking up his office if His Excellency fails to act after a week upon receiving this petition.

The Youth would be grateful to His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo only by relieving the DCE of his post with immediate effect to prevent a protest.

We wish the President well in his re-election and pledge to support his government to continue to transform Ghana and make it a better place for all.

Attached are names of petitioners.

Thank You.

Yours faithfully.
