The Nadowli District was yesterday thrown into disarray,as the youth of the area thronged the streets of Kaleo,a community in the district to register their dissatisfaction with the creation of a new district and its capital out of the existing one.

They resorted to blocking of roads, as a way to petition the government on the current development that came through regarding this move. According to a statement from the Local Government Ministry, Nadowli district has been split into two, Daffiama - Busie - Issa District with Issa as the capital, whilst the existing district has been renamed Nadowli Kaleo District with Nadowli as the capital.

However the youth in the area, through their protest demanded that Kaleo be made a district capital.

The Deputy Upper West Regional Minister in response to this has appealed to the people to exercise restraint, adding that the government would not ignore them in any developmental project due the area.
