Supporters of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) have clashed over a public toilet at a suburb of Tamale in the Tamale Central constituency of the Northern Region.
Media reports indicate that the scuffle surrounded an old toilet in the community, which gave off the stench, making life uncomfortable for residents in the area. He said when the NDC recaptured power in 2009, the chiefs and elders of the town approached the Member of Parliament and other high-ranking government officials in the area, with an appeal for the construction of a new public lavatory.
NDC supporters, realizing that Dr. Bawumia had initiated action towards a new toilet project, also alerted the MP for Tamale Central, Alhaji Hassan Huseini, who also arranged for trucks to convey sand and gravels to the site towards commencement of the lavatory project.
Meanwhile the police is reported to have reported at the scene to restore calm and order as investigations into the scuffle.
