The Public Accounts Committee (PAC), led by Honourable James Klutse Avedzi, has directed Professor Twumasi, the Director General (DG) of the National Sports Authority (NSA), to ensure the immediate transfer of Alexander Atieku from the role of Central Regional NSA head to the Eastern Region.
This directive came during Professor Twumasi’s appearance at the PAC hearing regarding dealings at the NSA during the reviewed year.
After a heated grilling session, the PAC Chair chastised the NSA Director General for his role in obstructing the order of Sports Minister Mustapha Ussif to transfer Alexander Atieku from the Central Region to the Eastern Region.
“Honourable members, the Director General took instruction from the Minister to transfer Mr. Atieku. He-the DG-made the heading, Transfer to Head Office and intentionally put in the body of the letter, Transfer to Eastern Region. The DG went behind that letter and spoke to Mr. Atieku not to honour the transfer, so that’s a complete disrespect to the Minister.”
“This committee I think our position is that Mr. Atieku should move immediately to Eastern Region and Director General, this committee is directing you to ensure that Mr. Atieku is moved to where you are transferring him. Do that immediately and report back to us.”
Professor Twumasi has served as NSA Director General since his appointment in 2018.
