The District Chief Executive of Twifo Hemang Lower Denkyira in the Central Region has accused Member of Parliament for the area, Bright Wireko Brobbey of masterminding attempts to get him out of office.
Emmanuel Kojo Nannah said the legislator has always been against his appointment as DCE and is now capitalising on his ill health and absence from active duty to oust him.
The DCE’s comments are in reaction to a petition sent by some assembly members to the Local Government Minister and the President demanding the dismissal of the DCE.
The petitioners say the absence of the DCE has led to various malpractices by staff of the assembly including malfeasance.

Mr Nannah told Joy News’ Richard Kwadwo Monday the MP is the one masterminding his removal. He had made his first appearance in office after months of absence due to the ailment.
“I know that there are big people underneath that are orchestrating these moves…from day one my MP has never supported my candidature. Even when my name was mentioned, he tried to every possible means to dissuade some of the assembly members from voting,” he alleged.
“Even after my confirmation he said I am not his type of DCE so he will never support me,” he added.
The DCE also said that the issues of financial malfeasance that were raised in the petition to replace him were originated by the MP.

He sent the matter to the Regional Minister. And when the Regional Minister invited him, he couldn’t bring any evidence to show that there was any financial malfeasance. I don’t think there’s any iota of truth in any of those allegations,” Mr Nannah said.
He also insists that he has “had the opportunity to go through everything that happened in his absence and nothing has gone wrong that suggest corruption or malfeasance”.
Member of Parliament for the Hemang Lower Denkyira, Bright Wireko Brobbey has however denied the allegation against him.
“I have no hand in it,” he told Richard Kwadwo Nyarko.
