NPP will lose Savelugu/Nantong seat in 2020 if…–MP

The Member of Parliament (MP) for Savelugu, Mohammed Abdul Samed Gunu has cautioned that the rift between the appointed Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of the area, Hajia Ayishetu Seidu and some aggrieved New Patriotic Party (NPP) constituency executives is likely to reduce their chances of winning the next elections.
For the third consecutive time, the angry residents staged a demonstration against the MCE and have vowed to prevent her from working.
According to the protesters, the MCE is an alien who played no role in the party’s victory.  They have also accused her of paying for her confirmation.

They say they are not bothered by the security implications of their actions, since they believe it is in the interest of the Savelugu-Nantong Municipality.

Mr Gunu said the faction between the two individuals if not addressed might affect the fortunes of the party.
“The angry Savelugu residents have staged a number of demonstrations against Hajia Seidu, and have vowed to prevent her from occupying the office even at the peril of their lives.
“If such a thing should happen, there is a possibility that it will ruin our chances come 2020 because the constituency is a strong hold of the NDC and this is the first time we have won the seat.
“It is a very fragile situation, if we don’t take time and handle it properly, the party is likely to lose the 2020 elections,” Mr Gunu lamented.
Meanwhile the Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, Hajia Alima Mahama has appealed to residents of Savelugu to desist from preventing their MCE from working.
She said “the MCE has been confirmed so I expect the media to educate the people to know that the woman has been confirmed. In fact, she was confirmed on the first try.” –
