Hon. Emmanuel Kofi Agyemang is the incumbent DCE for Dormaa East and he is also waiting patiently to be re-appointed by the President, Nana Akuffo-Addo for his second term in office following his vetting.
Hon. Emmanuel Kofi Agyemang, “Adwuma Wura” pride himself as the most hard working DCE Dormaa East has ever produced and always heard loud on the radio before and after the election promoting the good works of the President Nana Akuffo Addo.
Prior to the 2020 election campaign, the NDC party in the District levelled a number of allegations against the DCE of which he failed to give a satisfactory answer.
This allegation took the center stage of the Dormaa East Campaign and it led to a clash between the NPP and NDC at Wamanafo which also led to the banning of the use of information centers for the purposes of Campaigning.
One of such allegations against the DCE is on the “sale and purchase of the Dormaa East Grader and the use of the proceeds thereof”.
Hon. Emmanuel Kofi Agyemang, “Adwuma Wura” said among other things that the Grader used to breakdown frequently and was consuming much funds of the assembly without bringing in any benefit.
The second allegation is on the “sale and purchase of the old official Nissan Patrol” vehicle for the DCE of Dormaa East.
Based on the above, the DCE claimed he and the Assembly members agreed to sell the Grader by following all the appropriate procedures. Meanwhile some of the assembly members are surprised by the assertion of the DCE except to say that, the DCE only informed members about the state of the Grader and the need to sell it.
The procedure Hon. Emmanuel Kofi Agyemang claimed he followed was to “seek approval from the office of the Chief of Staff among other things”. We know from the District Assembly hierarchy that the DCE reports to the Minister of Local Government and not the Chief of Staff.
The question one may ask is “Why will Hon Emmanuel Kofi Agyemang (DCE) seek approval from the Office of Chief of Staff rather than following the guidelines stated in the Public Procurement Act, Act 663 as Amended and the Disposal of Goods and Equipment Act?
This clearly raised an eyebrows, that the purported sale of the Grader didn’t go through the right procedure, hence an investigation needs to be carried out with immediate effect.
“Guess Who bought the Dormaa East Grader and for how much?” The source indicated that, the Hon. Emmanuel Kofi Agyemang bought the Grader.
This same person is preaching against corruption. When he was asked on a political talk show program on “Wontumi TV” as to whether or not he the DCE has made any gains as a DCE, he answered in the negative “NO”. Meanwhile, the DCE is said to have purchased two cars from the assembly within four years as a DCE.
Should this person be appointed the second term?
Is he the only person having money in Dormaa to be buying our properties?
His second coming will be worse. Asem sebee.
