N/R: Police force-opened locked School Feeding Coordinator's office

The office of the Northern Regional Coordinator for the Ghana School Feeding Programme, Felicia Tetteh, has been opened after it was locked up for over a week. The office was locked up on October 16, 2017 by irate youth calling themselves Burma Camp youth group,  an emerging pro-NPP youth group in Tamale. The youth before locking up the office,  held a press conference where they called on President Akufo-Addo to “immediately investigate” the conducts of Mrs Felicia Tetteh whom they alleged has selected some non-party members to the position of Municipal and District Coordinators of the programme without recourse to party structures. They vowed to “deal with her and the entirety of staff in her outfit”, and proceeded to lock her office same day after asking her and other staff members to vacate their post. Interestingly, the Northern Regional Police Public Relations Officer, ASP. Mohammed Yussif Tanko revealed on 3FM’s Late Edition that “no official complaints have been made by the Coordinator; the police is not able to effect any arrest”. However, at about 4:30 Tuesday October 24, 2017, a police CID arrived with a carpenter to force open the office and the keys handed over to the Deputy Northern Regional Minister Solomon Boar to be given to the Coordinator. A visit by Media General’s Northern Regional correspondent on Wednesday October 25, 2017 confirmed that the office was opened but Mrs Felicia Tetteh was not at post. Efforts to reach her to find out if she has reported to work was unsuccessful. By Zubaida Ismail | 3news.com]]>
