The latest development contradicts a letter announcing the interdiction of some three staff of the Service, including Mr. Alexander Hedidor, who have been accused of breaching the neutrality clause. The two others are Alhaji Maazu Abubakar and Roland Nsoh-Billa Abire, who contested the Pru West Bolgatanga East Constituency primaries, respectively.

”Your decision is in contravention of the Local Government Service Code of Conduct particularly, Canon (1): ‘the Principle of Anonymity and Permanence’ which states that ’Officers and staff of the Local Government Service shall serve the State with neutrality and anonymity in the national and local government process’,” Head of the Local Government Service, Dr. Nana Ato Arthur stated in a letter to the affected staff.
