He told Accra-based Class FM: "The people who think that I, Daniel Bugri Naabu, will take money to recommend to the President of the Republic of Ghana to appoint a DCE, I pity them… They are cockroaches, human beings will not think like that."

Boasting, Mr Nabu said he was able to reject a bribe of GHC300,000 cash and cars offered by former President John Mahama to churn out false allegations against then candidate Nana Akufo-Addo,  wondering why he would accept a meagre GHC100,000 from a woman who works as an accountant at the Yendi Government Hospital.

Mrs Seidu's appointment has sparked agitation in the district. The agitators say she is not a native of the town.

On Wednesday when she was appointed, they vandalised properties at the party’s office and burnt lorry tyres to register their displeaure.

According to Mr Nabu, he did not influence the president to appoint Hajia Ayishetu Seidu as the MCE of Savelugu.

He noted that his duty was to submit the names of persons who were interested in the position to the president for consideration.

“My duty is to file names and submit to the president and the president is the only person who can appoint. I have no power,” he added.

“I don’t know anything about that woman’s appointment; my appropriate choice was not accepted, similar to Sagnarigu”.
