Other civil servants are still performing duties after winning party primaries, check with ministry of education & torture! Some HT continue to interpret GOV’T policies against laid down procedures!

He is compromised, he has been practicing active politics while serving the government. he should be fired. the other thing his decision tells us is that he knows that DPP will not do well.
