President Nna Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has appointed former Youth Organiser of the People’s National Convention (PNC) Abu Ramadan as Deputy Director-General of the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO).
A letter of appointment dated March 7, 2017 said: “Pursuant to Section 20(1) of the national Disaster Management organisation Act, 2016 (Act 927), I hereby appoint you to act as a Deputy Director-General of the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO), pending receipt of the constitutionally required advice of the governing council of the Organisation, given in consultation with the Public Services Commission.
“I take this opportunity to congratulate you formally on your appointment.
“Kindly indicate your acceptance or otherwise of this appointment, within 14 days upon receipt of this letter. Thank you”.
Abu Ramadan in the run up to election 2016 has announced his defection to the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
“Now I am a two-day old member of the New Patriotic Party,” he declared to loud cheers from the thousands of supporters gathered at the Accra International Trade Fair Centre.
His defection may not shock many political watchers following his affiliation with the NPP on various national campaigns waged by pro-NPP groups including the Let My Vote Count Alliance.
In the 2012 general elections, he mounted NPP platform to announce his support for Nana Akufo-Addo’s presidency against his party’s presidential candidate Hassan Ayariga.
