Akufo-Addo sacks Northern Development Authority CEO

Dr. Alhaji Abdel-Majeed Haroun

The appointment of the Chief Executive Officer of the Northern Development Authority, Dr. Alhaji Abdel-Majeed Haroun has been revoked, DailymailGh.com can report.

This is according to a letter dated December 12, 2019 and signed by the Executive Secretary at the Office of the President, Nana Bediatuo Asante.

The letter, however, gave no reason for the revocation of the appointment of Dr. Haroun.

DailymailGh.com has also gathered that Dr Haroun has been replaced by one Dr Alhassan Souleman Anamzoya — a senior lecturer at the University of Ghana.

President Akufo-Addo created the Northern Development Authority, together with the Middle Belt and Coastal Development Authorities, and tasked them to implement the Infrastructure for the Poverty Eradication Programme (IPEP).

Northern Development Authority (NDA) was established by the Northern Development Authority Act, 2017, Act 963 to “provide a framework for the accelerated economic and social development of the Northern Development Zone”.
