Tension is rising between the supporters of the governing NPP and the major opposition party NDC at Krachi in the Volta Region after the District Chief Executive (DCE) of the area ordered for the removal of ex-president John Mahama’s image from the community Senior High School.
According to Accra-based Starr FM, the DCE, Augustine Appiah, claims the directive was given with the consent of the Deputy Volta Regional Minister.
Mr. Appiah said he felt the directive was rational and asked why a former president’s photo should be on a national property such as the Nchumuruman Senior High School.
