Reinstate DCE else we vote against MP – NDC youths, Chief of Kpatinga threaten

Some youths of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in Kpatinga in the Gushiegu constituency in the Northern Region have threatened to vote against the incumbent Member of Parliament (MP) if the deposed District Chief Executive (DCE) is not reinstated.

They alleged the MP, Thomas Nassau, caused the removal of the DCE, Alhaji Alhassan Fuseini because he had a quarrel with him and felt his ambition to get re-elected will be threatened if he is not removed.

The leader of the group, Shahad Seidu said the party’s fortunes in the coming election is in danger because its key supporters are angered by the development.

Seidu said the chief of Kpatinga and some key opinion leaders in the community have expressed their misgivings and readiness to vote against the MP.

According to him, the removal of Alhaji Fuseini will end the peace process he initiated to end clashes in the area.

Kpatinga and its surrounding areas are under curfew because of recent series of political and chieftaincy clashes.

However, since the curfew came into force, Kpatinga has experienced peace which the youths believe became possible because of the work that was done by Alhaji Fuseini.

Seidu said the newly appointed DCE, Abdulai Seidu, is a threat to the peace process and government must reconsider his appointment.

The feud between Thomas Nassau and Alhaji Fuseini according to Joy News’ Hashmin Mohammed, dates back to the DCE’s defeat in the NDC’s constituency parliamentary primaries.

The incumbent MP polled 2,494 votes whiles the former DCE recorded 2, 447 votes.
