The frustration and intimidation is becoming too much- NALAG president laments


The National Association of Local Authorities of Ghana (NALAG), has condemned the activities of party supporters attacking Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) in the country.

 NALAG says MMDCEs are going through a lot of frustrations and pressure by both party members and some traditional authorities in their respective districts.

President of NALAG and Municipal Chief Executive for Asunafo North in the Brong Ahafo region, Alhaji Mohammed Doku poured out his frustration in an interview with Zaa News during the final funeral rites of the Kumbungu DCE  Alhaji Iddi Manza Mahama at Dalun Sunday.

 The NALAG president called on the leadership of the National Democratic Congress to immediately look into the issues which he said are gaining grounds in the country. The NALAG president described their late colleague DCE as humble and hardworking and prayed that his soul rest in perfect peace.

’’Frustration are coming all over, from the party, people in opposition and traditional authority, how can one person carry all these’’ Alhaji Doku asked.

He therefore called on all and sundry be it from government or the party to support the DCEs because as he put it, it is only person who must manage  the affairs, after all the DCEs are party members.   

’’We expect that after his death, peace prevailed in the Kumbungu district because he was a peaceful man’’ Alhaji Doku appealed. He expressed NALAG condolences to the brief family and the chiefs and people of Kumbungu and described their colleague death as a great lost to NALAG.

The late Iddi Manza was the first NDC constituency organizer in 1982 during PNDC era in the area. He was a trained teacher by profession, worked with National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) and later became a radio broadcaster at the community radio station established by Ghanaian Danish Community Programme (GDCP) based in Dalun.

Until his appointment as DCE for Tolon/Kumbungu by the late President John Evans Atta Mils, Iddi Manza was  later moved to Kumbungu by President John Dramani Mahama, he was the head of programs at Simli Radio based in Dalun. He died in Accra on the 16 of this month after a protracted illness.

 He left behind four wives and 13 children. Faisal Iddi Manza Mahama who spoke on behalf of the children to Zaa News said their late father was a caring  and tried all his best grow them to become responsible people.

’’From the day we went to Korle Bu, things were not easy but he wouldn’t give up he didn’t all he could’’ Faisal told Zaa News with tears full of his eyes. ’’We just to say is that we really appreciated what he did for us, for us he was the best and we pray for his soul and wish him journey to his maker’’
