“Tweeaaa” DCE dismissed

The District Chief Executive (DCE) for Ahafo Ano

South in the Ashanti Region, Gabriel Barima

who recently made the word "twea" popular

has been dismissed with immediate effect.

A statement signed the Executive Secretary to

the President; Dr. Raymond Atuguba said "the

president exercising the powers conferred on

him by the Local Government Act section 204,

has dismissed the DCE for Ahafo Ano South,

Gabriel Barima with immediate effect."

The statement also said the Ashanti Regional

Minister has been directed to act until a

substantive DCE is appointed.

the popularising "tweaa" in another interview

statement to express his disgust.

The statement issued earlier on Wednesday said

"In view of this development, the Ministry is

reviewing its earlier decision to ensure that

Hon. Barima is appropriately sanctioned

according to the high standards of public
