Navrongo Chiefs Warn Youth

By A. A. Mbord, Navrongo -

THE Navrongo Traditional Council has advised citizens of the area not to accept any money from politicians to influence them to engage in acts of vandalism, before, during and after the December poll.

Specifically, they should not allow themselves to be lured by the MP for Navrongo Central, Kofi Adda, to go to Bolgatanga to attack his perceived enemies.

The council said this after an emergency meeting here yesterday, in reaction to an alleged warning notice purported to have been served on the   people of Navrongo last Friday by the Bolga Naba, Chief Martin Adongo Abilba II, with a threat of war should anyone from Navrongo attack a citizen of his area again.

The Bolga Naba's action followed the invasion of two bus loads of youngmen from Navrongo allegedly under the instructions of Mr Kofi Adda, last Sunday, November 2, to search and eliminate Mr Adams, an aide of the Vice President, Alhaji Aliu Mahama.

The two reportedly engaged in fisticuffs at an NPP rally held in honour of the Vice President and the Presdiential running mate of the NPP Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, at the Bolgatanga Jubilee Park on November 1.

The Regent of Navrongo and President of the Traditional Council, Pe Arthur B. Adda, confirmed to the Times that the council also dissociated itself from the alleged action of the MP which they also described as unacceptable.

The chiefs, he said, resolved to go back and restrain their subjects from yielding to the selfish temptations of politicians who seek their personal aggrandisement.
