President Nana Akufo-Addo's pick for the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of Savulugu/Nanton Municipality in the Northern Region has been confirmed by assembly members amid tight security.

Hajia Aisha Seidu secured 78.1 percent of the vote cast to emerge as the MCE as soldiers and riot police officers patrol the municipality to prevent any potential violent protest.

Her nomination as the MCE was fiercely resisted by some angry youth of the area who claim she is not from the community.

The burned tyres and vandalised properties of the New Patriotic Party in the community to register their protest.

Prior to today's vote, the irate youth had accused the Regional Minister and the Regional Executives of the New Patriotic Party of plot to rig the election.

“Furthermore, we have gathered intelligence from credible sources that, the regional executives in collaboration with the regional minister are plotting and masterminding  crooked, malicious and malevolent means to rig the elections in favour of Hajia Aisha.   We want to state unequivocally that, such means adopted by the regional team to rig the elections in favour of Hajia Aisha Seidu will be met with stiff resistance from the Party youth and the general public in Savelugu”, a statement signed by Abdul Karim Zakariah, convener of the youth group warned.
