My deputy scheming to get me sacked - Western North Minister

The minister for the Western North region, Kingsley Aboagye Gyedu, has accused his deputy of undermining his authority and scheming to get him sacked.

Mr Gyedu petitioned the local government minister over what he says is his deputy, Alex Tetteh’s disregard for his office in the newly created region.

In a four-page letter to the Local Government Minister, Hajia Alima Mahama, dated 11 June 2019, the minister enumerated several reasons why his deputy minister must be questioned.

Some of the reasons he outlined include the deputy regional minister convening a regional Security Council meeting without his knowledge, issuing security orders to counter his own orders and conniving with a chief to change the site for a Regional Coordinating Council office.

The regional minister added that the actions of his deputy are to undermine him and to make him look bad, ineffective, inefficient, incompetent and unpopular in order to get him sacked so he could become the regional minister.
