Tension mounts at the Yunyoo-Nasuam District in the North East Region of Ghana as the youth of the area are demonstrating against the National Identification Authority (NIA) over recruiting outsiders to spearhead the registration and distribution of Ghana Cards in the area.
Speaking on the Mid-day Live on Joy News and Joy FM on Friday, June11, Elias Otanko, Joy News' reporter from the North East Region, reported that demonstration is still ongoing and has mounted high tensions in the area with the presence of the police who are patrolling around to ensure that there is peace and calmness.
The youth expressed serious concerns about the fact that the current recruits or agents deployed to the area to register and distribute Ghana Card to the people are no longer needed because they are outsiders who don't understand some of their languages, sentiments and other matters. This has caused serious communication problems in the last registration exercise.
They further issued threats to the National Identification Authority saying that they would not give space and peace to anyone who would be deployed to the place apart from their local persons who are equally qualified and have applied for the position.
"We are using this medium to communicate our hearts to the NIA because we will resist anyone who would be deployed from outside Yunyoo-Nasuam District. We will give him no space and peace of mind, and we'll chase him out of this place."
Elias Otanko further reported that the various registration and distribution equipment of the Ghana Card has been sent to the Bunkurugu District Police Station due to the high tension currently at Yunyoo.
