Former Member of Parliament for the Zebilla Constituency and private legal practitioner, Hon. John Ndebugri has hinted a possible law suit against the Bawku West District Assembly if they fail to elect a PRESIDING MEMBER before approving the District Chief Executive nominee for the district, Hon. Tahiru Issahaku Ahmed.

He said this following the failure of the Bawku West District Assembly to elect a presiding member to steer the affairs of the assembly in the last administration which was headed by Hon. Victoria Ayamba as District Chief Executive.

Speaking on the Zebs Breakfast, the legal practitioner minced no words in stating that, Hon. Victoria Ayamba’s four-year tenure as a DCE is not legally recognized.

According to him, a District Chief Executive cannot exist without a presiding member.

The former Member of Parliament therefore cautioned the assembly to do the right thing by electing a presiding member before approving of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s nominee.

“I kept mute in the last four years and the district was operating without a presiding member. However, I will go to court and stop them if the assembly sits to approve Hon. Tahiru Issahaku Ahmed as the DCE for the district without a presiding member. The law must take its course” He added.

The Bawku West and Tempane Districts have been without  Presiding Members. Several attempts to elect presiding members in these districts failed. With the recent appointments of MMDCEs, many wait to see how they will go about the confirmations. Coverghana.com.gh have gathered
