Regional Minister Denies Knowledge of Gonja DCE Corrupt Act


Northern Regional Minister, Moses Mabingba has said he has no idea about deductions being made by central Gonja DCE from salaries of public servants to fund the campaign of the NDC.
Speaking to ZAA radio in Tamale on allegations that the central Gonja DCE Sualisu Bi Awuribei caused the deduction of salaries of some workers of the Non Formal Education Division and Zoom Lion in the central Gonja district, the minister expressed surprise at the development and denied any knowledge about it.
He said there is no such policy and wondered why the central gonja DCE would do so without his knowledge and that of his deputy.
ZAA news last week aired a story in which Sualisu allegedly sanctioned the deduction of Ghc 25 each from Zoom Lion and Ghc 20 from NFED workers.
When contacted the DCE confirmed the deduction but denied that he ordered it.
He told ZAA news that it was a decision reached at a departmental heads meeting to use the funds to contribute to NDC campaigns. When the line dropped he refused to pick our calls again.
One of the affected workers from Zoom Lion Afa Abdallah confirmed to ZAA news about the deductions.
But the regional minister said he is not aware of such directive for any DCE in the region to deduct the salaries and allowances of workers to fund the NDC campaign.
ZAA News last week learnt that the ZOON Lion district monitor in charge of the central Gonja district, Moro Jato who opposed the deduction was transferred to Salaga.
He confirmed the transfer to ZAA News but would not speak any further. This is the first time allegations of such magnitude has been made against a sitting DCE in the region.
