The dust raised by the nomination and confirmation of Hajia Ayishetu Seidu as the Municipal Chief Executive of Savelugu is yet to settle, as angry residents carried out another protest on Monday, vowing not to allow her function even at the risk of their lives.
Monday’s protest is the third in the series, as the protesters alleged that she bribed assembly members to secure their mandate after her nomination by the President.
Speaking to Eyewitness News, a resident and New Patriotic Party, NPP Polling Station Organiser, Abdul Karim Zakaria, insisted that the MCE was not a committed member of the party and did not cast her vote in either of constituencies in the Municipality.
“A stranger has been imposed on us. We shall not countenance Hajia Ayishetu Seidu to be our MCE. We are prepared to sacrifice our lives to defend the NPP party in Savelugu and to defend the whole Savelugu Nanton constitution from strangers. She has bribed her way through and the constitution of Ghana frowns seriously on corruption. She has started with corruption, if she settles down, you can imagine what she will do,” he said.
According to him, his group of protesters is not bothered about the security implications of their actions since they believe they were in the interest of the Savelugu-Nantong Municipality.
The protesters also submitted a petition to the Municipal Coordinating Director, maintaining that she is an alien in both Savelugu and Nantong constituencies for which reason she should be replaced.
