The embattled District Chief Executive-nominee for Tolon, Hajia Amamata Sayibu, has accused the Northern Regional Minister Saying Salifu Saeed of creating a false sense of tension in the area to sabotage her appointment.

Salifu on Monday, acting on advise of the Regional Security Council, called off a planned endorsement process at the district capital citing heightened tensions and threats of chaos by some dissatisfied party youth and chiefs who have been waging revolt against the nominee.
