NDC youth in Yendi threaten to kill MCE

There have been increasing cases dissatisfied supporters of the NDC protesting against some government appointeesAngry youth of the ruling National Democratic Congress in the Northern

Regional Town of Yendi, have declared the Yendi Municipal Chief Executive, Mr Hudu Welvis a persona non grata.

They have threatened to kill the MCE if he is not removed from office and taken out of the area.

The youth issued the threat at a meeting Saturday between the Yendi Constituency Executive, Regional Executive and a delegation of national party officer from Accra.

The delegation included the a Vice-Chairman of the NDC, Mr Kofi Portuphy, a Deputy National Organiser, the Northern Regional Minister Moses Mabengba and the Regional Propaganda Secretary of the party Umar Farouk.

The obviously livid youth are incensed by Mr Welvi’s inability to provide them with jobs and accused him of working against the interest of the party in the area.

Security operative in Yendi had to escort the MCE out of the district to avoid irate youth visiting mayhem on him.

Earlier the youth smashed the windscreen of the Constituency Chairman’s vehicle for daring to attend a meeting at the MCE’s residence. The meeting initially scheduled at the Yendi Community Centre was redirected by the MCE to his residence upon hearing that the youth had planned to call for his dismissal in the presence of the national officers of the party.

Following their vehement protests, the meeting reverted to its original venue but Mr Welvis could not attend because the youth vowed lynch him should he dare.

At the meeting, the constituency executive of Karaga also accused their DCE of selling contracts to members of the opposition New Patriotic Party.

They told the meeting that although the DCE had apologized for his actions on seven separate occasions, he had subsequently gone back to commit the same offence.

They therefore called for his dismissal.

However, constituency executive from Gushiegu, Chereponi, Zabzugu and Bimbilla, according to Joy News’ Northern Regional Correspondent, who sat through the meeting, commended their DCEs jealously guarding against the interest of the party.

They want their DCEs retained.
