Greater Accra House of Chief Registrar hot as groups demand his sack

The Greater Accra Regional house of chiefs registrar, Harry Anthony Attipoe has landed himself in dangerous waters as the Coalition of Ga-Dangme Youth have asked him to vacate his office before 13th of September or face their wrath.

According to the Coalition, Mr Attipoe is setting bad precedent for workers within the Civil Service and must be compelled to leave his office to maintain sanity in the service.

The Coalition has threatened to picket at the premises of the Greater Accra Regional House of Chiefs to drum home their concerns.

According to the group, Mr Attipoe, for about five months now has refused transfer postings to the Volta Region from his sector minister hence their action.

Speaking at a mini protest at Labadi, the Spokesperson for the group, Emmanuel Okoe Thomy said "we are surprised a civil servant is refusing orders from his sector Minister, Mr Henry Seidu Daanaa. What precedent is he serving for other civil servants in the country to follow? I think he must be disciplined to serve as a deterrent for other civil servants who might want to follow his steps"

Mr Thomy continued that Attipoe's claims that he is serving the interest of the chiefs at the regional house of Chiefs and for that matter, he will not proceed on his transfer to the Volta Region until the chiefs asks him to do so is ridiculous and gives room for suspicion.

"Why is Attipoe refusing to go on transfer and why is he now hiding behind the Chiefs. Are the Chiefs his employees?" Mr Thomy questioned

The Coalition of Ga-Dangme Youth has however asked the worried registrar to as a matter of urgency to vacate his office or face their wrath.

Clad in red, the aggrieved youth are again appealing to the minister to terminate the appointment of Harry Anthony Attipoe as stated in its letter dated the 12th of August 2016.

The Ministry of Chieftaincy in its final postings notice to Mr Attipoe notified him of losing his job effective 18th of August 2016, should he continue to occupy the office of the registrar at the Greater Accra Regional house of chiefs.

To this effect, the group is also appealing to the minister to ensure Attipoe faces the full rigours of the code of conduct that employed him and must be shown the exit.
