Re: Eviction Of Traders In Front Of President’s Nima Residence

Government’s attention has been drawn to news items on the media landscape, about the “eviction of traders” in front of the President’s House in Nima, and wish to state as follows:

The saddest part of the impudence is the fact that the political heads of the district in question, the region in trouble as well as the sector ministry on rampage "are" completely "unaware" of it. It is no surprise because our very own president is practically unaware of many things in his government.

Haruna Institute: The Burning Of Tipper Trucks And Other Machinery

A solution that solves a problem and creates another problem is lame and retarded. It is in this light, Haruna Institute deems it appropriate to join a chorus of voices to condemn the Rambo style burning of 14 tipper trucks, an excavator and other machinery by the military in the name of protecting water bodies and the environment in Afayili in the Kumbungu District on 3rd March, 2018.

We are by this statement calling for a full scale investigation into the operation and the circumstances leading to the assault on the persons who were in charge of the vehicles at the time, the burning down of those vehicles and equipments, and the alleged confiscation of monies belonging to those who were brutalized.

Minority angered by burning of sand winning trucks.

The Minority Caucus of the Northern Region condemns in the strongest of terms the brutish and callous manner in which a detachment of the military under the directions of the Regional Security Council, seized and burnt fourteen (14) tipper trucks, an excavator and several motorbikes in the Afa Yile community of the Dalun electoral area in the Kumbungu District.
