We’ll review Mahama’s CHRAJ, NCCE appointments – NPP

The incoming NPP administration has served notice it will review all new appointments being made by President John Mahama when it assumes office on January 7.

In a statement signed by the leader of the party’s transition team, Yaw Osafo Marfo, the NPP mentioned the confirmation of the CHRAJ and NCCE chairpersons by the President as some of appointments they will review when they takeover the presidency.

Mr. Mahama confirmed Joseph Whittal and Josephine Nkrumah as heads of the CHRAJ and NCCE respectively early on Tuesday.

The move has sparked massive controversy with supporters of the NPP accusing the President of bad faith.

“These appointments of Chairman of the Commission for Human Rights and Administrative Justice and Chairman of the National Commission for Civic Education have been done contrary to an earlier agreement at the Transition Committee’s meeting of December 19th, at which meeting it was agreed that such appointments would be done subject to consultation with the Presidential Transition Committee.

“It is the view of the President-Elect’s team, that these appointments coming barely 24 Hours after the agreement and less than three (3) weeks away from the inauguration of the incoming President is most disappointing and exhibits bad faith,” the NPP said in a statement.

Below are details of the statement

PRESS STATEMENT

The Team of the President-Elect on the 2016 Presidential Transition Committee has taken notice of Two (2) new Constitutional Appointments that have been made today December 20th 2016 by President John Dramani Mahama.

These appointments of Chairman of the Commission for Human Rights and Administrative Justice and Chairman of the National Commission for Civic Education have been done contrary to an earlier agreement at the Transition Committee’s meeting of December 19th, at which meeting it was agreed that such appointments would be done subject to consultation with the Presidential Transition Committee.

It is the view of the President-Elect’s team, that these appointments coming barely 24 Hours after the agreement and less than three (3) weeks away from the inauguration of the incoming President is most disappointing and exhibits bad faith.

We will, therefore, like to serve notice that the incoming administration reserves the right to review these and other high profile appointments, recruitments and contracts being embarked upon in these final days contrary to normal conventions associated with Presidential transitions and the consultation mechanism agreed.

Nonetheless, we shall continue to engage the Team of the Incumbent President on these and other matters which were earlier listed as matters to be consulted upon.
