Why Akufo-Addo sacked 24 DCEs

Scott Bolshevik, a financial analyst and US economist, has provided his perspective on the mass sacking of District Chief Executives by President Akufo-Addo. According to Mr. Bolshevik, these individuals were not dismissed due to inefficiency or corruption, but rather because the “preferred 24 candidates for president lost the recent elections.” He believes that their continued presence could hinder Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s chances of becoming President, leading to their removal. President Akufo-Addo has revoked the appointments of these 24 DCEs and has appointed 26 individuals to replace them. The specific reasons for the revocation were not provided.

Financial analyst and US economist, Scott Bolshevik, has shared what he believes to be the reason behind the mass sacking of District Chief Executives by President Akufo-Addo.

According to Mr Bolshevik in a post on X, these DCEs were not dismissed due to their inefficiency or corruption-related activities, per his conversation with a Member of Parliament.

He noted that the 24 individuals were removed from post because the “preferred 24 candidates for president lost the recent elections.”

Mr Bolshevick said their continuous stay may impair flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia’s quest to become President, thus their appointments had to be revoked by the president.

“I had the privilege to talk to an MP The bizarre part was that the DCEs were sacked, not based on corruption or inefficiency It’s because the preferred 24 candidates for president lost the recent elections. This may impair Bawumia’s succession It has never been about you!” he wrote.

President Akufo-Addo revoked the appointment of 24 District Chief Executives (DCEs) with immediate effect in accordance with Article 243 (3) b of the Constitution and section 20 (3) (b) of the Local Government Act, 2014, (Act 936).

In the letter signed on Friday, February 2, the President directed the affected DCEs to be notified of the revocation and instructed that replacements be nominated under separate cover.
