Savelugu NPP youth apologizes to Akufo-Addo

The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) youth in the Savelugu constituency of the Northern Region, have unequivocally apologized to President Nana Akufo-Addo for their initial stance against the Savelugu/Nantong Municipal Chief Executive.

The NPP youth through several demonstrations kicked against Hajia Ayishetu Seidu’s nomination and her subsequent confirmation.

They have however backed down on their protest, and have thus apologized to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo.

This followed a government mediation team led by a Minister of State at the Presidency in charge of National Security, Bryan Acheampong’s ability to solve the political deadlock there.

The Savelugu constituency NPP Communications Director, Abubakari Sadiq Sulemana, at a news conference said, “We apologize to the President for protest and demonstrations for several weeks though we believed our message was important. We now concede our approach was wrong.”

“Our commitment to the Akufo Addo government is still intact and unwavering. We will continue to work with all stakeholders in the governance process to ensure the success of this government.”

Abubakari Sadiq stressed that, “We want to assure the President, vice President and the party leadership that we will not do anything to derail the efforts of government to make Ghana a safe haven for investors.” “As stakeholders in the Municipality, we want to state that we will harmoniously work with Hajia Ayishetu Seidu as the MCE for Savelugu/Nantong to ensure that the vision of the President and the program of government is implemented for the benefit of the people of Savelugu/Nantong.”

Northern Regional Minister

The Regional Minister, Salifu Saeed commended the youth and the party’s bigwigs in the two constituencies for reasoning with the President’s plea.

As Chairman of the Northern Regional Security Council (RECSEC), he encouraged the MCE, Hajia Ayishetu Seidu to strengthen her relationship with the residents.
