NPP youth brace public offices in Tamale after swearing in of president, defying orders from party’s chairman to desist from such acts



The bracing of public offices and the issuing of warnings to some section of public officers have resurrected barely 24 hours after the swearing-in of the president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo -Addo.

Officers working at the Tamale Metropolitan Directorate of the Youth Employment Agency met life threatening warnings and red cloths placed on the doors of their offices by yet to be identified persons.

The YEA officers say they suspect activists of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) of being behind the acts. The office has been deserted by the workers out of fear for their lives. When Zaa News visited the area this morning, it noticed that even the National Service personnel at the office had left, leaving the place for police.

This is the second time that the attempted closure of public offices has occurred after the December 7 general elections. Immediately after the declaration of Nana Addo as president-elect, the National Disaster Management Organization and Youth Employment and Youth Employment offices in the West Gonja District were locked up.

The leadership of the NPP, led by Abdul Fatawu Daniel Bugre Naabu, before the swearing-in, condemned the act and warned party youth to desist from such acts.

However, grapevine sources indicated that the youth suspended their actions while waiting for the swearing-in ceremony which would give them full control over the state apparatus.

The Rapid Deployment Force (RDF) of the Ghana Police Service has since taken over the YEA office located around the Choggu roundabout, ASP Apreku, commander told Zaa News earlier this morning. “We got information that there was a problem at YEA office and as peace officers we responded timely protect public property,” ASP Apreku stated.

Meanwhile, the management of the Sagnarigu District Health Insurance Scheme has officially reported to the Northern Regional Police Command after some disgruntled youth stormed the place on Monday morning, warning the top management not to report to work on Tuesday (tomorrow).

The youth, according to an eye witness, were holding hammers perhaps to brace the doors of the main entrance.
