The Regional Council of Elders of the NPP and the Regional Executive, led by the Regional Chairman, Alhaji Iddrisu Sulemana, has appealed to all party members to accept the list of MMDCE nominees announced Sunday.

A statement signed by Haruna Iddrisu, NPP Regional Secretary, said, “we are appealing to all party members as well as the general public in the Savannah Region not to do anything to disturb the peace the area is enjoying in the wake of the release of the MMDCEs today.”

The statement noted that; ” the Region is blessed with good human capital to occupy the positions of the MMDCEs in the various MMDAs but these positions are limited. To those who will not find their names on the President’s list of nominees, let’s remain calm, control our supporters and support the lucky ones.”

The Regional Secretary also urged those who have been nominated, to celebrate in moderation and caution their supporters to as well, be moderate in their excitement.

“We further urge that peace and unity should prevail all over the Savannah Region for a smooth confirmation of the nominees,” Haruna Iddrisu stressed.

The Minister of Local Government, Decentralisation and Rural Development, Dan Botwe released the list of nominees for Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs).

Addressing a press conference on Sunday, Dan Botwe said the list has been forwarded to the Regional Ministers for the approval process to begin.

“They (Regional Ministers) are going to contact from tomorrow, Regional Directors of the Electoral Commission, get in touch with the Presiding Members of the various Assemblies and start the process of confirming Mr President’s nominees,” he said.
