The District Chief Executive (DCE) for Sawla-Tuna-Kalba, Lawal Tamimu is fuming with excessive rage over attempts by some yet to be identified persons to brand him as the author of an error-ridden letter announcing a visit by the Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to the District. 

The letter dated 29th May 2019 which has gone viral on social media and subsequently being discussed widely in the media circles, according to the angry DCE, had been referred to the police by the management of the assembly for thorough investigations to uncover the imitators. 

Mr. Lawal Tamimu in a statement issued to the media and signed by the Public Relations and Complaints Officer of the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba district assembly, Mr. Abu Ibrahim said the ‘fake letter’ was a calculated attempt by some individual saboteurs in the area who are only bent on tarnishing his hard won reputation and cause embarrassment to his administration [the assembly]. 

He questioned why and how a purported official letter from the District Assembly inviting dignitaries and key stakeholders for the occasion of the historic visit of the Vice President was not written on the official letterhead of the assembly. 

He said per administrative procedure, every official letter of that magnitude from any Assembly is written by the District Coordinating Director on official letterhead, which bears the national coat of arms before it’s signed by or for a DCE.  

“It must be stated clearly that the Hon. DCE left Sawla for Tamale on 28th May 2019 to attend a meeting of MMDCEs with H.E. the Vice President and the Hon. Ministers of Northern, Savannah, North East Regions slated for 29th May 2019. The District Coordinating Director was also in Tamale the very day the said letter was written and distributed”.

When contacted by WatchGhana.Com, the DCE, Mr. Lawal Tamimu maintained that the signature on the said ‘fake letter’ did not also represent his signature. “The signature on the said letter is not mine and the letter head is also not from the assembly”.
Voice of Sawla DCE
The DCE has therefore urged the public to disregard the letter and treat it as such. “The letter was forged to tarnish my reputation as DCE by some individuals who have personal interest in the position I occupy”. Meanwhile, the residents of Sawla-Tuna-Kalba District believed to be those who opposed Mr. Lawal Tamimu during his appointment as DCE had gone to the media with copies of the said fake letter demanding the President, Nana Akufo-Addo to terminate his appointment. Other residents who are also hailing the DCE for his commitment to the development of the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba district have not only rubbished the call for his termination, but also described the matter as “criminal”. They told WatchGhana.Com’s Correspondent in the Savannah Region that they fully back the decision by the Assembly to refer the matter to the police for investigations to clear the DCE of any wrong doing.
