NPP supporters rejects MCE nominee in Northern Region

The Diare zone of the ruling NPP and its community elders, have expressed their disappointment in some party leaders and some unknown party supporters at Savelugu constituency, who are calling for one Hajia Ayisha Maame to be the Municipal Chief Executive for the Savelugu Nanton Municipality after she was accused of not participating during the campaign towards the 2016 general elections.

Responding to an earlier press conference organized by some sympathizers of the said MCE aspirant, Hajia Ayisha Maame, the aggrieved group said it would be unfair if the the constituency treasurer Mr. Imoro is not made the MCE considering his contribution towards the victory of the party in the Savelugu constituency and the Northern Region at large.

Mr. Imoro according to the group funded most of the food, water and the transportation of party supporters including motor riders during the campaign period.

Hajia Ayisha according to some electorates, is not a registered voter of the the Savelugu constituency and suggests that, she does not qualify to lead the people of the Savelugu Nanton Municipality since she is not known by most of the leaders and supporters of the party.

Furthermore, the have argued that there is a member of parliament from Nanton and another from Savelugu, therefore getting a chief executive from Diare which won majority of the NPP votes as compared to what was won at Savelugu.

The group have however promised to register their intense opposition if the said woman is made the MCE of the Savelegu-Nanton municipality and have warned that the ruling NPP would see massive division and can cause the party's defeat in the 2020 election should Hajia Ayisha be made the Savelugu Municipal Assembly boss.

The President of Ghana Nana Akuffo Addo is expected to name his remaining municipal and district chief executives and it is the expectation of the people of Diare to see Mr. Imoro as the new MCE and the best person for the municipality.
