Bugri Naabu stops DCEs confirmation over tensions in Gushegu

The Northern regional Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Daniel Bugri Naabu has raised concerns of security threats over some of the new nominations of  District Chief Executives in the Norther region.
The President on Friday nominated new district Chief executives for Gushegu, West Mamprusi and Bunkprugu districts but since the announcement of the list of the new nominees in the northern region, there has been tension, acrimony and rioting especially in the West Mamprusi town of Walewale.
Speaking to the media, Mr. Bugri Naabu said in the case of Gushegu for instance the Komkoonbas are threatening to attack facilities of the party because they feel cheated and deceived by the Vice President and the Regional Minister who had agreed to handover the DCE position to a konkomba kinsman.
According to him, there was an agreement between party and the Konkombas in that area to vote for the NPP parliamentary candidate to win while they will also be given the position of the district chief executive.
The NPP chairman says the Konkombas in that area are advancing their argument by citing certain individuals who have been given key government positions to their neglect despite the initial agreement they had with the party.
In view of what Mr. Bugri Naabu sees as security threat he has asked for a holdup onto the confirmation of the nominees of West Mamprusi and Gushegu until he further consult with the President on the matter.
