Minister rescues Bole DCE from dismissal

The Savannah Regional Minister, Mr Salifu Adam Braimah, has rescued the District Chief Executive (DCE) for Bole, Madam Alele Heming from being sacked as demanded by the chiefs and people of Bole traditional area.

As part of the minister’s efforts to resolve and restore peace in Bole and the region as a whole, he appealed to the traditional authorities of Bole to hold onto a petition they intended to send to the President, Nana Akufo-Addo to call for the removal of the DCE.

According to the traditional authorities, Madam Alele is one of the major reasons why Bole is facing its current chieftaincy disputes. They accuse her of fuelling some of the misunderstandings in the area.

However, the Savannah Regional Minister was able to intervene to stop the chiefs from petitioning the president for her removal.

Mr Braimah after a successful appeal to the traditional authorities, made them sign a written document as an indication that they will rescind their decision.

An intended press conference on the matter by the traditional authorities and youth of Bole traditional area has also been put on hold.

A delegation from the Bole traditional area is therefore expected to meet with the Minister in Damongo, the Savannah Regional capital for onward deliberations on how to resolve the issue.

Bole is currently suffering from chieftaincy disputes with two people battling each other over who to rule over Bole.
