NDC youth warn Mahama; withdraw DCE nominee if you want peace in Nkwanta


Members of the youth wing of ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Nkwanta North District of the Volta Region, have renewed their call on President John Mahama to withdraw the nomination of Paul Levin Djato as Chief Executive for the area.

Constituency Youth organizer Emmanuel Sando said the “unfortunate incident could have been avoided if the president and party leadership in the area had listened to concerns expressed by chiefs and opinion leaders”, prior to the re-nomination of Mr. Djato.

He made the call over the weekend, at a joint news conference by the NDC youth wing and Chiefs of the area.

Some youth of the party are in custody for their alleged roles in the vandalization of five government vehicles, during a protest against the nomination of the DCE by the president about a fortnight ago.

The youth organiser however, called on the president “to listen to the voice of the people” and remove the DCE whom they claim has failed to spearhead development in the district since his appointment.

Speaking on behalf of the chiefs, Nana Sampson Boribe Tinnyalitsin, Chief of Damanko also demanded the release of those arrested saying their continuous detention is creating tension in the community.

The chief maintained that the only way to keep the peace in the area, is for President Mahama to revoke the nomination of Mr. Paul Levin Djato.
