Some youths in Karaga are protesting against some persons they claim have been nominated by executives of the National Democratic Congress in the constituency for appointment.
According to the youths, the nominees lack the requisite expertise and qualities to function well in the position and warned the constituency executives to review the names before recommending them to the national executives.
A member of the group, Abdul Rahman Umar told Joy News’ Bernard Saibu that the educational levels of the nominees are too low and cannot be relied upon to do a thorough job.
“Their educational levels are low; they are inarticulate. In modern times we need scholars to do the bidding of districts to attract investment.
“I don’t want to sound discriminatory, but one of them is a complete illiterate. In terms of age, one of them is around 60,” he lamented.
“We need vitality, vibrancy and refreshing new leaders," he said.
He stressed that the constituency abounds in many human resources and advised the appointing authorities to cast their nets wider.
He said there is “desperate maneuvering” by the NDC General Secretary of the Karaga constituency to be appointed as DCE and warned the leadership not to succumb to such pressures.
Abdul Rahman said the district needs a neutral and competent person to be appointed.
