Fuseini Mohammed, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) chairman for the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba Constituency of the Savannah Region, has been physically assaulted by one Tingbani Bukari and his brothers from a community called Kunfusi at the Farmers’ Day celebration.
The New Patriotic Party chairman was allegedly chased with cudgels and stones and beaten to a pulp because Bukari was expecting to win the award of a tricycle motorbike.
Ghanaweb reports that the NPP chairman ran into a nearby house for his life. However, the landlord, who attempted to stop the Kunfusi people, was also beaten as they pulled out the NPP chairman to further assault him.
Sawla-Tuna-Kalba sustained injuries as blood was oozing from his ears due to the heavy beating. He was rescued by some people who came to his aid.
Tingbani Bukari and his brothers from Kunfusi said Tingbani should have received the motorbike but that was changed following the instruction of the NPP chairman Fushieni Mohammed.
Hon Sadik Sadak, the assemblyman for Kalba, where the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba District Farmer's day celebration took place on 6 November 2020, confirmed the incident in an interview with Bole-based Nkilgi FM.
Sadak said after speeches by the district chief executive (DCE), Lawal Tamimu and others, the presentation of awards went smoothly until a tricycle motor, which was supposed to be handed to Tingbani Bukari from Kunfusi was instead given to the NPP youth organiser for the constituency who is not a known farmer, resulting in the problem.
Hon Sadak told Nkilgi FM the brothers of Tingbani said he was cheated because he was informed about the award.
The assemblyman for Kalba said at the time of confusion, the police decided to send the tricycle motor to the Kalba Police Station, but the NPP chairman decided to move to the police station where he was accosted on the way and severely beaten.
In other news, the flagbearer of the National Democratic Party (NDP), Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings, has accused the presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama, of stealing her ideas on skills training and skills development.
According to Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings, she was insulted for introducing those ideas back in 2016 in the lead-up to the 7 December polls to help reduce unemployment.
Speaking in an interview with GHOne TV’s 2020 Woman, the presidential candidate for the National Democratic Party said that although she was condemned in 2016 for introducing the ideas, the flagbearer of the NDC is campaigning in 2020 with her proposals as though they are his new ideas.
