Some angry youth of the New Patriotic Party in the Berekum West Constituency in Bono Region have called for the removal of the District Chief Executive (DCE), Isaac Osei from office.

According to the youth, Mr Osei campaigned against the Member of Parliament–elect, Mr Kwaku Agyanim Boateng who was then the parliamentary candidate for the party in the election.

Clad in party colours and red armbands, the NPP youth marched through the principal streets of Jinijini, chanting and calling on the party leaders to listen to their petition and remove the DCE from office.

The convenor of the protesting NPP youth, Simon Miller said “We want it go to the regional Chairman, Chief of Staff, Local Government Minister that we do not want our DCE again. His work has come to an end, he is doing so many things against us, he is behind the skirt and blouse that took place here. If we had joked the MP would have lost.”

“We are telling the Chairman to inform the regional and national that we cannot work with Honorable Isaac Osei, Berekum West DCE, and all local government appointees. DCE you should be helping the MP in his campaign but you were paying losing bonus and taking peoples’ ID cards,” he added.
