Security has been beefed up at the premises of the Bawku Municipal Assembly following threats by some NDC youth there, to attack the assembly members if they confirm the President’s nominee for the Municipal Chief Executive position. The youth have not been happy about the nomination of Amadu Karimu for the position describing him as a stranger to the NDC. They have accused the Minister for Information and Media Relations, Mahama Ayariga, who is also the MP for the area, of imposing his favourite on them. Today, the assembly members will vote to confirm or reject Mr. Karimu’s nomination for the position. Presiding member of the Assembly, David Doliba, says members do not feel threatened because of the security arrangement made so far.
