NPP office in Salaga burnt down over siting of new regional capital in Damongo

Some youths of Salaga went on rampage in protest against the selection of Damongo as the capital for the newly created Savannah region, setting ablaze the office of the ruling New Patriotic Party in the community.

They argued the people of Salaga South showed faith in the New Patriotic Party by voting the party’s parliamentary candidate, Salifu Adam Braimah as MP,according joy fm report.

They say the choice of Damongo which voted for an NDC candidate Adam Mutawakilu, does not reward the peoples’ faith in the NPP.

The party’s office in the constituency is up in flames. “The place is burning down, people are throwing stones and all manner of things” an eye witness said.

The people displeased by, the President, Nana Akufo-Addo’s announcement say Salaga deserves to be the regional capital. The roofing, fridges, widows, satelite dish and computers are among the many things destroyed.
