President Nana Akufo-Addo has terminated the appointment of Hon. Zakaria Mohammed as the District Chief Executive(DCE) for the Sisala West District in the Upper West Region.
It’s unclear why the president sacked him but reports say he has been in bad terms with his party executives for sometime now.
A letter signed by the Local Government Minister said “His Excellency the President in accordance of Article 243 (3)B of the 1992 constitution of the Republic of Ghana Section 20 of the Local Government Act 936 has revoked the appointment of Hon. Bakor Zakaria Mohammed for the Sisala West District Assembly with immediate effect”.
The letter directed that the Regional Minister takes over from the vacant position until a substantive District Chief Executive is nominated by the President.
