Chaos at the Nalerigu voting centre where the NDC is electing regional executives

Delegates of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) clashed on Saturday (12 November 2022) at Nalerigu Senior High School, where voting was taking place to elect regional executives of the party in the North East Region.

The police had a tough time maintaining law and order as the NDC delegates disagreed with the electoral process, which led to chaos in the hall.

The fight ensued after the leadership of the NDC in the region announced the voting right of the TEIN executives – the students’ wing of the party – from the Gambaga Training College and the Nalerigu Nursing and Midwifery training schools.


Some of the supporters opposed the TEIN executives being allowed to vote and insisted that they should not. Supporters from the camps of the four aspirants for the regional chair clashed over the announcement.

The police later managed to restore calm but the voting process was forced to come to a halt for a while.

The chairperson position is keenly being contested by the incumbent chairman, Alhassan Nantomah Sandow; Abdul Rauf Ibrahim Tanko, a former MP for a local constituency, Yagaba Kubori; Saaka Abdul Razak; and Joseph Laabik.


Two hundred and twenty-three delegates in total are expected to cast their votes to choose new regional executives for the National Democratic Congress in the North East Region.
